    Question Mud Terrain T/A 's

    I have the original short chassis/ narrow stance slayer for starters. My truck has the original "traxxas" tread tires and they are shot, bald spots,tears,little to no tread left on them. Oh and the rims a just as bad with cracks and what not. What is your experience with the Mud terrain t/a tires like how well do the grip in gravel and grass? I really want Badlands but after buying all that it will be like $80, Im just looking for some help. Thanks

    Go with proline. Factory tires aren't that great. I run Proline Gladiator SC tires on stock Slayer rims on my truck. If you want to open up your wheel selection. Get a set of 12mm hex hubs for a 6mm axle and you can run just about any 12mm hex SC wheel you want.

    Oh and that rub is only when the truck is completely bottomed out, so no worries there

    Well technically since the weigh more than stock it would probably be a good idea to re gear, but in reality most 2.8's are rather close in overall diameter to the stock 2.2/3.0 size, you should be ok with leaving it as is.
