Nice to see another rig of this size.



Let me know how the tires work out. I am considering a pair for mine.

Looking good so far!

nice rig. if you decide to get the tires just make sure you have room for a 8 1/2'' tall tire.

ya dont like the idea of glueing tires but i just couldnt find beadlocks that i liked. if they end up not working i found some one who will make these in 4.0 beadlocks.

WOW!...that is just sick!
I have a few of those Nylint Jeep RC toys, but don't think they will ever be as worthy as yours.

How many hours do you have into the tube cage build?

The ones that I am runing are 8 1/4", so I should be able to fit them. I am concerned if they perform like the 2.2 version or not. Thanks.

i am no expert but i think foam tuning is going to be tricky, if you wont them for a crawler tire not just a basher. the tread is to tall for how thin the wall of the tire is. the tread folds over to easly, they should have made the tread half the size or the wall thickness should have been thicker where the tread lays. have being made from there x3 compund is a plus though
