I run these (http://thetoyz.com/cart/thetoyz_details.lasso?id=12418&cat_name=) wheels. They are great for pretty much every element. I go offroad fine with them, and are a bit taller than stock so they are great for top speed runs. A lot of people go with these (http://thetoyz.com/cart/thetoyz_details.lasso?id=12312&cat_name=) tires. But there are so many options out there. Anything with a 12mm hex on it, will fit onto the 1/16 revo or slash. This means you can use rustler, stampede, jato, and bandit tires.

As for the charger, many people will probably suggest this (http://*********.com/*********/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=7373&Product_Name=*******_Accucel-6_50W_5A_Bal/Chrg_(USA_Warehouse)) charger. Which will be perfect for the occasion once you buy a power supply. However, I went with the Onyx 230 charger, just for the fact it's a more "known" name and I could probably troubleshoot a problem if I have one. I love the onyx, it hasn't failed me yet *knock on wood*. The only downside to it is you need a external balancer to balance lipo cells. For a balancer, I went with the Astro Blinky Balancer. The setup is great, and the onyx 230 is proving to be a great charger.

Hope I helped, you will love your mini revo :cool: .

yeah that helped alot i love the looks of the car and im just amazed by the speed of it out of the box so pretty much i can use any 1/10 wheel cuz i like some of the touring wheels that the toyz have on their website. i heard that the charger it comes with takes like 6-8 hours to charge a battery and i was like thats a bunch of crap my mini t takes like 2 hours to charge so i want something thats goin to charge them batteries fast.

Think about the chargers mentioned.The revo will just blow your mini t away. I've had both, and it's not even comparable. It will take 6 hours to charge, with isn't any good. I ditched the stock charger within 2 days :D.
As for the wheels, you can't use all 1/10 wheels. The toyz mentions the rim's fitting. If it says the rim has a 12mm hex, then it will fit. If your interested in more larger tires, you can always install larger hex's. Some racers have put 17mm hex's to fit buggy tires onto their revo. A hex is the fitting that is molded into a rim, and fits in a hexagon shape installed onto the revo.
These (http://forums.radiocontrolzone.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=89021&d=1249324346) are what hex's look like. These are installed onto your revo, and the molding on the rim interlock with the hex onto the truck. You will see these once you get your truck, and it will all make sense.

That has a male Tamiya connector, which is what a lot of R/C's come with. If you go into Wal-Mart, most R/C's there will have this connector. With that being said, you need a Female Tamiya Connector to a Male TRX Connector. No problem, and I actually have one installed on my Onyx 230. This (http://cgi.ebay.com/Male-Traxxas-to-Female-Tamiya-connector-plug-TRX-Slash_W0QQitemZ300370731297QQcmdZViewItemQQptZRadi o_Control_Parts_Accessories?hash=item45ef7da121)
is what you need. That is a steep price for the connectors, but if you searched you should be able to find it at a better price. But it's what you need in order to use that charger for stock Powercell 1/16 Revo batteries.

ok cool i wish traxxas made a their own peak charging im just really weary about buying stuff that have connectors and stuff worrying that they wont fit and that i wasted my money im just new to rc and love it but it gets expensive quick if your not careful. how long do you thing that charger i picked out would take to charge a battery.

You could do that, Horizon Hobby has great customer service.
Not a bad option to go for.

would the traxxas revo wheel nuts fit the mini e revo?

http://www.wheelspinmodels.co.uk/products/5353X.jpg

i have some jato wheels, but i have to screw the nut on real tight until you hear plastic creak, otherwise (for me at least) the nut will come lose after some time and the wheel will fly off. it's happened to me 3 times, two high speed, one just after a jump.

From the looks of it, any 2.2 inch wheel/tire combo will work as long as the wheels are 12mm hex. Right?

Correct Subiefan

Just be careful some 12mm hex wheels fit but have a larger hole designed for a larger diameter axle, and some may not have clearance to allow you to tighten the nut far enough

Revo wheel nuts are 17mm Hex and will not fit

Cheers

I've got a 1/16 revo and just got a set of 1/10 scale blitz wheels they are 4.5 inches tall they look great on my revo. I haven't run it yet with them on. I'm afraid of burning something up. I was wondering if anyone has a spur and pinion gear suggestion to counter the tire size difference. I was thinking of just getting the smallest pinion I could find along with the biggest spur. Any suggestions?

Man those are like low pro tires. How stiff are the side walls? Do the tires ever roll over anough for the rims to hit ground, when your cornering hard on pavement? Insert pretty stiff?
