    Forgot that I had this footage from an early spring run. Mudslingers were superior to the Trenchers in every way. I left out most of the footage where the Slingers went over obstacles that the...

    I liked the look of the video. The wheels look so small when in fpv. Some extreme terrain you have to crawl on, and I'm sure you need the extra ground clearance the Mud slingers offer in order to get...

    The axial wheels are the same offset as stock but do not have a Traxxas style bead. The Trencher X have a Traxxas style bead and will not mount to the axial wheels properly without modification.
