    The holeshot is a fairly small tire. I would stick with a traxxas desperado or jconcepts rulux
    They are the top right rims in the pic. Rulux on jconcepts

    You would probably want 26/50 for 2.2s...I don't know anything about those tires off the top of my head. 26/50 you should have no problem with. I would wait for 50 to come back to see if you can go any higher.

    Hey spyder! 26/50 would be on the safe side. With it being winter and your tire combo is pretty light the stock 28/50 might do unless running in tall grass or sand. Always keep an eye on temps with any changes til you know how hot it runs
    Which tire compound did you get?m3 or m4

    The lhs shop had the M3 soft with the green paint dot, and we are going to be running them on the dirt track me and Timber211 (my uncle) in his side yard are putting together we got some ramps built today for it.... and I will check into the 26/50 gearing. Thanks for the help, we are both new to this 1/16th stuff

    Hey 50, I recognize the Rulux wheels, but can you please tell me what brand those other wheels are?
