    Thanks,
    or maybe some tires that you guys like more then those
    and do they wear out quick?

    Watch out running trenchers on 3s with any gearing. I would overheat left and right, no matter what gearing i ran. If your gonna run trenchers, i would run 2s only, and even with that i recommend, traxxas slipper clutch adapter, and steel driveshafts. Your motor will still be hot but unless you get a Castle or something comparable, then you can run 3s again safely. These are all just my personal experiences. If you live in a cooler climate you might be able to get away with 3s on the VXL .My friend is taking his motor back for replacment right now from traxxas, because he would never check temps running 2.2 BFG wheels on 3s, offroad. His gets up to 180-190 in minutes.It only took a handful of high temperature cut off's for it to give up the ghost. In any endevour let us know what you do... with pics!!!
