    New Body + Wheels w/ Pics

    So I recently posted a thread trying to decide what wheels and tires to get for my (dad's) slash 4x4. I went to the hobby shop today and picked up some goodies:

    -proline split six beadlocks
    -proline gladiators
    -rpm body mounts
    -rpm body savers
    -rpm front bumper
    -traxxas ford raptor body

    Enjoy.

    Straight from the store:

    The body:

    Tires mounted up on the beadlocks:

    A quick comparison between new and old tires/wheels:

    The result so far:

    I'll probably be painting the body up next weekend and I'll be sure to post up new pictures when I do. Lemme know what you think.

    I like the idea of no glueing, so you took the cheap way I took the lazy way. Turns out putting a bead of silicone around them is almost as much of a pain as glueing though

    juvalle I just have a vxl system if that's what you're wondering. It was purchased in the brushed form and is mostly stock. And thanks devildog! I haven't had a chance to run the tires yet as it is snowing pretty hard, but I have them on my rustler and they're great. I run on a wide variety of surfaces so I wanted something versatile.
