    Question traxxas slash 1/16 vxl tire upgrades

    Hey everyone I have a traxxas slash 1/16 vxl and have recently purchased proline dirt hawg tires with 2.2 wheel and was wondering what I need to do to make my car work like the gearing I need because the car barley moves with them on and I know they will work because several hobby shops have recommended them to me thanks.

    What 2.2 rims did you get? It may have to deep of a hex and its binding when you tighten down your wheels.

    What wheels? Seems like you would need to cut the body and run a much stronger servo for starters.

    You need a 23t pinion to maintain the same overall gearing as the 31t pinion, or a 21t for the "speed" pinion.

    Note the speed pinion is smaller and will reduce top speed. They name it this so you can do "speed runs" without overheating.

    *IS* there any binding in the steering?
