    WHEELS AND TIRES
    The Slash VXL 4WD and E-Revo VXL use 12mm axle hexes which
    allow many types of aftermarket tires and wheels to be adapted
    for use on your model. Most will affect the overall width and the
    suspension geometry of the model. The offsets and dimensions
    designed into the model’s wheels are intentional; therefore,
    Traxxas cannot recommend the use of other non-Traxxas wheels
    with different specifications. Experimentation with different types
    of tires is recommended to see which ones work the best on the
    terrain where the model is run. Soft compound tires with many
    short spikes generally work better on hard, dry surfaces. In loose
    dirt, a tire with large spikes should perform better. Foam tires can
    be fitted for use on pavement or indoor carpet tracks. See your
    parts list for accessory wheels and tires.
    When selecting tires, consider the overall diameter of the tire.
    If the overall diameter is significantly larger than the stock tire’s
    diameter, you will need to use a smaller pinion gear to compensate
    for the larger tire. If you wish to install tires with a diameter greater
    than 4 inches or 100mm, Traxxas suggests you configure the
    transmission for ‘underdrive’ gearing. Details on making this simple
    modification are available at Traxxas.com.

    I wonder. This flies in the face of the official parts list which states that the stock wheel hubs are 8mm.

    No it doesn't. It says the pins for the hex are 1.5mm x 8mm, not the hex itself.

    Also, per the text on the "Details" tab:
    "All-Terrain Tires & Wheels
    Each corner of the 1/16 E-Revo VXL is equipped with soft-compound Talon tires that are mounted and pre-glued on impressive 53mm Gemini chrome wheels. 12mm mounting hexes open the door to additional wheel and tire combos to tune traction for specific surfaces—even foam tires for carpet racing."

    I see. I guess I misread it.

    Hmm....I wonder how much rub there would be if the jump was made to 2.8 tires.

    just adjust gearing.. if over 4", I think most 2.2, 2.8 tires are less than that. But I'm looking more for racing tires than any of the stock 2.8's... then again two rusty vxl rear tires for f/b would be right nice I would imagine be better on the front wheels though

    They already have shiny red pushrods and toe links, not to mention cvds and gtr shocks.
    ENJOY the hobby, don't HATE it.
