I added about 1.5-2 pounds to the truck with these, but I geared the truck down a bit to deal with the extra weight (as if 3S lipo really cares) I'm waiting for the lake to freeze over to give the tires a proper test, but the initial tests are quite encouraging. Down the road I'm hoping to add in an additional rear chassis brace.
Stay away from my legs with that thing lol, seriously, nice work.
Cool- survivalist Slash!
Nice project! When you run it on the lake try and get video!
Use less brakes
All you need is a figure of Mel Gibson on the driver side and that will say it all. You dont have nothing on "Mad Max" LOL I cant wait to see video of it on the frozen lake.
When i saw the pic the first thing i thought of was "mad max." lol

Nice truck, could probably hold up to some bashing!

Well it snowed out here today, and I have to say the first run on the lake was quite disappointing. There was very little grab from the wheels. On the other hand, they give incredible traction on the snow so I'm very happy with that.
mount a pair of S&W MP15 assault rifles on there and use a micro servo to fire them that would be awsome with those mods. i put 2 glocks on the sides of my summit and drove it around shooting them lol.... WHATEVER YOU DO DONT DRIVE THE TRUCK TOWARDS YOU hahaha
Heh, Looks more like a Road warrior truck to me.
1 Needs more spikes!
2 Needs some red paint on spikes for blood.
3 zombie guts!
Ha if those tires were easy to make I'd do more spikes, but they're a pain in the behind to do!
Oh trust me, the truck's getting some...aesthetic modifications over spring break.
Yeah- Road Warrior that truck!
I am looking at doing something like this but I want to fab up an entire body. What guage metal did you use? Does it hold up well in roll overs?
Gotcha I was going to use somthing a little bit thicker than that so that it holds up a litte better without to much reinforcment. It looks like you used regular old pop rivets correct?
Bring on the apocalypse!
Haha wow that's awesome. I wish my dad could enjoy it like yours.
Ha yea I am trying to get my nine year old brothers into it now but I dont really think they are ready to drive a slash just yet. I let one of them try it and he was doing fine untill he wanted to jump it and drove it right into a parking stop block or whatever you want to call it. It didnt break it but I cant see one holding up to the abuse they would put it through lol.
My daughter is 7 and she got a slash for christmas. Whenever someone asks her why she likes running an RC car she says "It's something I can't break"
Yeahh body scratches are nothing haha
Update: Tried these tires on grass and dirt. Oh my god can you say traction? I was easily pulling wheelies on 3S lipo and grass. I grenaded my transmission today though so that'll probably be the end of that till I can find out what I did.
I guess the tires were a bit too much for the 1 year old diff. Time to get a new one (and not run those tires on 3S)
