Yes they are... 4.19" Mtr's 1.9" Pro10's

I had a little time today, so I pulled the wheels to check for grass stuck in the bearings.... Very common thing in the riverbeds is to spin the tires in the grass and it imbeds in beween the wheel hex and the bearing holding moisture against the bearing, rusting it solid...

Any hoo everything checked out and the bearings are nice and clean to my suprise. Now we will be seeing about some mods, not that it needs anything,but I am working on getting a first gen bed, and possibly a new clear cab. The panhard bar needs to be shortened along with the steering link, due to my shorter ride height, so I will dig into my parts bin and see what I can find.....

Ok went back to my Proline Tsl's in the 4.3"flavor...
Mounted on Rc4wd wagons for a classic look and a wider stance....

I had a pair of brake disks for the front, and stuck with the old pin mount for the rear....
Front is 1/4" wider track than the rear....

I found the rc4wd Goodyear Mtr's dug holes in the loose sand and snow, last time out.... Where the Proline Tsls tend to keep moving forward.....





Sorry about the fuzzy pics, my phone has a scratch across the camera lens now...

The TSLs really seem to fit the look of your truck.

I can see this happening. The MT/Rs seem to be a bit more bitey and aggressive than the TSLs. I've got a set of the BFG KM3 on order with the MT/Rs on stand by. I'm sure it'll depend on the trail conditions on which set to run.

Thanks Ironhide.

Yes I agree, there is just something about the Tsl's that work. And while they don't do rocks as well as Rock Beasts, they outperform them in mud and wet conditions. The goodyear Mtr's are great, just not as good as the Tsl's in mud and soft sand, they just dont have the forward bite the Tsl's do and dig holes. Might be the foam, I'm not sure. Prolines have stock Memory foam up front, and RB foams in rear, lol and they work everywhere...

Rock beasts are running my stock foams from PB Growlers

Mtr's Have stock foams.

I do not notice an issue with sidewall stiffness in any of these setups, My honcho is light due to being stock and running a 2200 mah 3s.

Default Rock Sliders on SCX10 ii Chassis

Going to add rock sliders to my SCX10 ii Honcho, looking at both just rail and rail plus tray style, (I’m favoring the rail and tray style) anyone have experience with both and would like to offer any advice or input?

To my suprise, the stock sliders do not get hung up nearly as often as I thought they would, just looking at them.

After driving mine for a year, I would not be afraid to run just the rail style. However, for max performance, with the smallest possible chance of getting hung up on them a tray would be the better option.

So it boils down to what ever you like, really.

Thank you for taking the time to test and post your thoughts and findings especially on the various tires very insightful and helpful. Have you any experience with the Proline Predator rubber in comparison to the G8 compound?

My pleasure... I do not yet have predator compound tires yet..... A set of 4 Tsl's is sitting in my cart at RPP, as I type this though.

Nice Trailing Pics! Would have liked them twice if it were an option. Epic.

Thanks Smog....

I am really enjoying her. She has been super reliable, though I did notice the front knuckles are starting to show some wear.

The Trail Honcho made it off my backpack yesterday... My buddy lost his esc early on and his barrage got tossed onto the backpack.



If you look just off the nose of the bronco you can see one of the airborne video machines



And she is up top....

And she made it off the backpack again today. When the motor in Vertigo melted down about 3 miles up the trail.

Btw this is Vertigo...



Hit some mud, and crawled this rock face to exit the creek crossing...







She did have her first failure, I need to double check, but I think the servo horn stripped...

Will report later.

Confirmed. Stripped servo horn.

Going to make a couple adjustments due to the fact my ride height is much lower than stock. So shorter panhard bar, and drag link. Need to find my stash of Revo rod ends..

I only had 2 revo rod ends...

New Panhard bar, 1/8" shorter than the stock one, bringing the axle centered @ ride height.

The old Panhard bar became the new steering link. Will pick up some more rod ends tomorrow.

And yes, sleeved in Brass!



And the culprit of my woes on the trail.

Instead of Revo rod ends, I picked up some Traxxas links.... #3643, extended them out, and Bam! matching Drag link and Panhard bar.
