    what size are the tires?????????

    i know it says 2.2 wheels but what is the overall size of the tires? height width? i think proline mashers would be awesome on this truck or even the rock crawling tires

    IMO Mashers would be too big and not look right. I have mounted up 4" tires like Gladiators to my MERV and thy even look a little goofy because they are so big, Mashers would be even worse.

    Weird thing is, it looks like the whole truck is lifted somehow... there seems to be crazy preload thats keeping it raised up. So even if we managed to put the crazy tires on our mervs and get taller body posts, it looks like the whole chassis would sit too low.

    If traxxas keeps this up i'm gonna become 1/16 obsessed and buy them all lol these look great!

    i had a set of mashers for my jato and sized them up on the merv before selling the jato. the mashers are too big for the merv. they were almost to big for the 1/10 jato. anyone got any nice sized crawler wheel/tire suggestions that fit nicely on the merv?

    This is my Merv(soon to be Summit) with proline Dirt Hawg 2 tires(4.32" tall) on Jconcepts tense wheels. here is a link to the tires I think these tires were too big on the MERV, they completely rattled the suspension loose on my gravel driveway, but I am hoping for better results with the LT rockers.

    I have to double check its been a while, but I'm pretty sure I put 25t/55t in it. I also tried a much smaller pinion at one time for crawling with proline chisel 1.9's, but the suspension would not co-operate

    I have never tried LiPo in it just the 6 cell Nimh's, It was my sons truck, but it broke every time he ran it so I got him an Emaxx. Now that I will be able to get the LT rockers it will be getting some Lipo's if I like it, heck maybe even a novak sensored system.

    I have a Jconcepts Illusion body sitting on the shelf I will have a reason to paint it now. I actually wish I could find a 1/16th Silverado body then i could make it a "Mini Sumbot"

    This thread just gave me this thought... Would the mini Summit wheels/tires work/ look right on a Rustler? they look to be about the size of a rustler tire.
