I just got my brushless erevo and I must say it's pretty bad ***!! One thing I'm still on the fence over is tires. I know alot of people recommended the bad lands but right now I have a full set of big joe 2s mounted on desperado wheels. I checked the specs and saw that they are a little wider and taller than the stock talons and badlands. The big joes look pretty awesome but the last thing I wanna do is start breaking parts. Do u guys think they will be ok on it or should I definitely go with smaller tirez?
with bigger tires you will destroy diffs and other things from the drivetrain
+1 on big tires adding strain on the drive train.
Erbe, Merv Vxl, Rusty Vxl.
My trencher X's are big and they used to eat diffs for breakfast.
Then I installed the LST diffs and kept the trenchers with no worries!
Big tires break weak diffs.
Go the badlands or keep the joes and drive like Miss Daisy is on board.
My neighbor has them on his revo - runs only on 4S, and they work just fine. Been running them for a while and no issues with his diffs.
Before that, he had the original big joes, and had no issues with them either.
Thanks alot guys! I don't usually go evil kinevil on my rc's so I'm guessing they should be fine...
I used a set of Big Joe 2's on my E-Revo all summer and loved them. I geared at 18/65 and mostly drive on grass. Over the summer the only drive line part I broke was a drive shaft.
Also, I read about people using the thunder tiger tires with their revos and I found this article favoring the Big Joe 2's...
I thought that was funny Big Squid talking about hop up tires for the Thunder Tiger and they chose the Joes!!

Update....After changing the gearing, rear talon tire fell apart so the Joes will be going on today. Let's see how they hold up....
