    Duratrax DTX EXTREME TIRES

    Anticipating my brushless system showing up on Tuesday, I want to have some ridiculous tires to go with it. Gotta print more rims and make some tweaks to reduce weight a little but here is the first revision. Stock motor doesn't have enough torque for these bad boys. Had to move the offset out to keep them from rubbing. Stuff is definitely gonna snap!!! 😬


    Will keep you posted.

    I ordered some taulman nylon for my printer, stuff is supposed to be indestructible. Working on a axle design so I can print it out and try it later this week. If it seems as strong as they say I will send you some to test.

    You'll also need to solder a traxxas connector on your esc for these but I think you already did this if I remember.
