    Mudslinger / wheel info

    Hi all, first post.
    Got a 10th scale summit the other day, been after one for ages and finally went for it, I love it!
    So the modding begins......
    I'm going to order some mudslinger 3.8 40 series tires, now I also want some proper bead lock wheel, I'm just unsure of what to order and where from?
    So just after any info on what you run on your own?

    I've searched plenty of posts but just after bit more advice.
    Thanks

    I'm using ax8042 axle wraith rims they r good rims and if I was u I would go down on the pinion to about 15 maybe 14 because these r some big tires.

    correct me if ime wrong but aren't you asking about gearing and heat issues in your own thread? we have no idea what his setup is but its probably brushed, your suggesting stock gearing he is most likely running,with the bigger tires on the stock setup 12t pinion or even lower would work with those tires.... I apologize if it sounds rude I don't mean to be....

    I have run the axial beadlocks and they rubbed hard on the a arms, others have run the narrow version without issues, the axials are nice and strong but make sure they are the narrow version if you go that way.

    The narrow axial bead locks are gonna be hard to find and costly. You could use the wider version with some extended hex hubs from Integy.

    Yeah I run the wide sometimes and as Jaman said - they run hard against the a arms. They have actually worn a groove into my a arms. But good luck finding narrows & if you find them they may cost you a kidney

    My summit is in standard stock barring a pair of 5000mah lipos.
    I want to use mudslingers but obviously I'm unsure of the wheels.
    Pics would help aswell.
    When you say the wheels rub, how can this be solved

    I plan to either fit a dewalt or go brushless but not sure which set up to use.

    Also when you say use the narrow axial wheels which wheels exactly do you mean, part numbers or links would be brilliant.

    Rc4wd (the makers of the mudslingers) sells about 2-3 styles of beadlock rims that can run on a summit (yes they are costly but that heavy aluminum actually helps when crawling).

    If you are willing to change hub sets from the stock17mm to 23mm then you could go with RedCat Racing 40 series rims (they are narrow and common on ebay) or a set of Proline Chayenne beadlocks (harder to find but worth it)

    I thought the stock pinion was like a 17 lol I only used the stock setup one time and never used it again but OK so if it have a 12 pinion stock he should be OK

    $200? That seller must be trolling the summit boards.

    For 200 bucks I'd buy the real aluminum bead locks from RC4WD. I still want a set of these so bad i can taste it.

    AX8046 are the wide ones, they wore a grove in the a arm from rubbing cause they have the metal beadlock both sides, and they are sharp, when the suspension flexes they connect the a arms cutting in.......also if you search guys have narrowed the wide rims to work.
