    Mudslingers vs Bigjoes

    Howdy all. I upgraded my summit to brushless and I'm starting to grow tired of my Mudslingers. I loved the look when I got them but now they are just.... meh.... I've been thinking of selling my Slingers and picking up some bigJoes. I would like some input from people who have run both. overall proformance, crawling, bashing and so on.

    If you sell the slingers let me know. I'm looking for a set for my daughter. Were close enough I can even pick them up.

    Big joes climb well, are extremely stable at high speeds and look great. I have not cut the treads on the mud slingers but both climb well.

    Negative. The big joes are wide and give good stability but are murderous when it comes to turning, the require a good servo and tire place when climbing things is not ideal. During high jumps ( if thats your thing) the big joes will actually bottom out. The tires and foams are fairly thin when compared to other 40 series tires. Lastly you will notice a BIG difference in ground clearance when climbing objects. Got skid pads?
    MAN, Use Common Sense.
    Outside? THERE IS NO BOX !
