    IMO, I would get some Pro line Trenchers. They're bigger, and they have more surface area.

    I have the new proline shockwaves. They are awsome on pavement, grass, dirt and sand. Very grippy.

    Ok, just get anything Pro line! Almost anything from them has great grip.

    with the 2.5r revo i wouldnt go so big i love that lil engine but its not meant to push around the big o trenchers too well i would go with a 3.2 wheel with the hpi dirt bonz they are a good all around tire and they are very lightweight. heres what mine looks like

    im running the stock gearing, they are actually the same diameter as the stock wheels and tires and like i said they are lighter so it has better acceleration . but honestly i would run the stocks plastic ones till they break and when they do upgrade to the rpm arms . if you go aluminum youll end up breaking more stuff in the long run

    No you need 3.2 size wheels such as the old school tmaxx wheels. The revo 2.5 wheels are 3.8.

    Oh ok and do you know of a rim that will fit on the stock hex drives? I'm on a very tight budget.

    Older T-Maxx and E-Maxx(?) rims. You could find a full set for pretty cheap.

    As usual, I'll reccomend Truggy wheels/tires. For that, you'll need 17mm hub adapters.
    You can get a full set of used from racers $30 give or take.

    Swapping the Spur gear is a lot easier and cheaper than the clutchbell.

    Okay so here is my plan of attack. First I get old school t maxx rims, next pro line badlands, and finally truggy wheels/tires because I want to get into racing, oh and pretty soon I'll have to start a build thread! Lol.

    For racing i would recommend the traxxas pro response tires and wheels. i run them on the track and they work well.

    For all around 3.2 "BUDGET" tires the HPI DirtBones on stock SAVAGE wheels are great my second choice is T-MAXX Chevrons.
    I like the chevrons so much I got a set of the new 2.8's for my vxl P4DE.






    Even tried a set of BIG JOE'S geared 14/40 with a 3.3 but you realy need a big block to spin them.

    Just bought Proline Trencher 40 series and LOVE them. They are massive. I switched the gearing to 14t/40t and it stakes off like a bat from *edit*. Also had to switch the 2nd gear shift time.

    Big joes and trenchers are too big i think based on using the joes and 6.3in maxx both bogged badly in medium grass. The 3.8 badlands slice through it tho but the picco might help with that.

    I changed my gearing to 14t/40t and my Revo rips through anything with the trenchers. I did lose a noticeable amount of top end though, but I am a basher that does rock climbing and steep inclines so I care about torque not top-end.

    My favorites for bashing are definitely the badlands. The 3.2 inch size are a bit harder to find IMO. Luckily they make a set that willl work with the 3.8 Traxxas style beads. I also like the PL Mulchers. These are discontinued but with some patience you should be able to find a set. If not hit me up I can probably help you out with those or something similar.
