    They should bolt right up, same chasis. You would of course have to re gear with tires that small.

    Also not to mention they would look really small, and out of place... But ya, it's possible.

    I mean 1/10 scale rally tires + wheels not the 1/16 rally

    maybe somebody could get a picture with the 1/10 rally tires on it. are they bigger or smaller than stock 1/16 summit tires

    That may take a while... as the 10th Rally is new.

    Try comparing the tire part numbers over at Tower Hobbies...
    they tend to be pretty good about providing measurements.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    The 1/10 rally tires are 102mm in diameter and the stock 1/16 summit tires are 98mm diameter so the rally's are a tad bigger

    What are the hexes on the rim?
    So far it sounds like they would be a decent tire as far as size goes.

    the 1/10 rally wheels are 12mm hexes and the 1/16 summit are also 12mm so it looks like it would be a good tire for track racing with softer dirt

    that looks really nice, i really like how it looks. It would be very cool if you could drive with them on to see how the motor handles it

    i didnt have any issues this morning driving it around...didnt have time to check the motor temps with the gearing but I have it undergeared to begin with so it handled the larger tires quite well. I think they are lighter than stock summit wheels. If you have a scale, we can compare. I'll weigh mine tonight so you have the #s.

    MUCH more grip than the merv wheels and because it hits up higher, it has a tendency to flip easier. WHEELIES even with the center diff installed.

    I cant compare to a summit as the summit I had was brushed and wasnt as fast as my merv. Not to mention, I recall it rolling over constantly with the large tires and high body. So, Yes, they will fit on the platform, yes it will grip more, should actually run easier and i think the rally tires are smaller diameter.....

    ...More to follow when I get home tonight. I'll take some technical notes and you can compare for yourself.

    the summit wheels are 3.86 inches tall but i do not have the weight, but the rally tires are about the same size as summit tires
    rally 102mm and summit 98mm tall
    or rally 4.02 inches and summit 3.86 inches

    I have ran short course wheels and tires, worked good, no temp issues. I now run the dirt hawg buggy rear tires, on 2.2 wheels. They are a little shorter than the regular dirt hawgs, they work good with no issues.

    Yes I ran full size slash tires, they are a little taller, but not alot. I like the dirt hawg rear buggy tires, they are a little shorter. I geared up to an 18 pinion, no heat issues. The slash tires work fine, it is just still a little more prone to flipping over, as with the stock tires. I have also ran the old style dirt hawgs, worked good, again they are just a little bigger than the stock.
