    HPI blast wheels and phaltline tires dont buy the preglued one, buy the separate one then tape the inside part of the tires then glue it yourself,

    your stock body should be fine, heck i sometimes run mine without the body on and i can full throttle it without any problem (mine is a REVO-E). i dont know if you can mesh a 54t/22t gearing on EMBE but if you can that should get you a good high speed run.

    Do the phaltline tires with the blast wheel balloon a lot.because they have very little side wall on them

    Prolly alot less than most other tires b/c of such a low profile. Those wheels are huge! On 6s, theyll still balloon though. Another option for on road is a pf8-gt body with some 17mm on road buggy wheels, or better yet, some belted xo-1 wheels. W that body, the tires would be just about flush w the body, like a scale car.

    fwiw x0-1 wheels wouldn't fit with tekno carriers or the stock carriers when I tried. they also looked really undersized for the truck. I recommend phaltlines, they don't ballon to badly.

    As for the body, I really like the Slipstream body from Pro-Line. You do have to mod the rear body mounts to get it to fit, but it looks nice.
