    Tires

    Picked up some big joes. Bad choice? I know they are heavy. I only got 2 b/c thats all they had at time. Should I look at trenchers instead?

    I agree with 87 GN about the badlands. If they are too skinny for your taste, find some 40 Series Proline Mulchers (they are discontinued).

    Trencher does look like a more all terrain tire.

    I have to agree with these guys. I have a set of TrencherX mounted on Traxxas Geode's and love them. I ordered last week (got them yesterday) a set of Badlands and Geode wheels. I plan to mount them this weekend. 87GN has this same setup. I had a set of the Badland MT's on my old Revo 3.3 and LOVED them. They hook up like nothing else out there....JMO.

    I think my next set of tire just may be Brewers setup.....Trencher 40 Series.

    Here are my TrencherX's:





    SUMMIT, SUMVO, ERBE, EMAXX & REVO 3.3

    I sold my Trenchers before I even ran them. They weigh a ton and after a few days of looking at the truck with them on I decided I didn't like the look. Prefer to go for a lighter set up just for better acceleration and less strain on parts.

    Badlands are my favorite. Got some mounted on Maximizer beadlocks (3.2 size) and when they're worn out I'll probably get some on Geodes.
    If at first you don't succeed, redefine success.

    Thanks for the compliment, but I took the easy road and bought the Traxxas Pro Graphic body. All I had to do is add the color. I only wish I had that much skill!!!!

    I think you’ll love the Badlands. I had my old MT’s mounted on dish style wheels too. All I can say is be ready if your on hard pack…….those jokers hook up!

    As far as I know they only come in chrome.......but a little EasyOff or Acetone will do the trick.

    Tires

    Badlands look too thin to me. Takes away from the 'monster truck' look imo.

    Also why does it look like everyone who takes pic of their car has never taken it out for a single run?!? My spoiler, body, chassis,wheels are completely dinged up, scratched and dirty. Show offs
