Default I got a Losi muggy today... What parts to buy for smaller wheels/tires?

I got a muggy today. Used. i will be everything out before running and I have decided i want to run truggy wheels/tires on it... I have the wheels and tires off my old 8T but What do i need to get for them to fit. I have heard the muggy is a beast with this setup. Anyone else do this?

Is this all I need????http://www.losi.com/Search/Default.a...hTerm=LOSB3516

What's it use to turn the current wheels?

That should be all you need to run the truggy 17mm wheels...


n/m about the question, I just looked it up... 20mm hexes, same as the LST2...

So yes, you should just need the 17mm kit you linked to.

the muggy will be a great first truggy for you there easy to drive and very tough and if you want to bash it would make one of the toughest bashers on the market

I have had buggies and 1/10 scale electric trucks but I bought the muggy to bash, and maybe race on occation but i have to say it handles almost as good as my old 8ightb... And is much tougher...

muggies are cool! I sold my LST2 early last year, which I had poured my heart, soul, and wallet in to, and was going to buy a mugg. but went with an LST2 again because of the price drop. People are amazed at how good these big trucks run just by swapping out to truggie tires.

I just put truggy wheels on my Clodbuster, and it dropped 3lbs, compared to the OEM wheels and tires

That's a major weight loss... So handling goes up!
