i'm thinkin some 10.5 twin force axles would work perfect under this thing. maybe some ladder bars as well.

I think you should get a small nikko boat motor and tranny, install it inside the engine. Run the water pump off the trans shaft, wired to throttle, sonthat the pulleys turn at throttle speed.

If you want to see it work, i could send you a link to one i did in a 1/7 hot rod based off the traxxas dragster chassis.

Hope this helps!! If you choose to go this route, I have an extra motor and trans from a spare boat if you cant find one. Got mine from a Nikko Rippers boat, and will answer any question you have !!!


I will pm you my build thread on URC so you can see it step by step. The engine is the first 7 or so pages.p

so... tire options. want it to have a street look of course, but with a little bit of off-road look, looks like RC4wd comes through again (added axial tires), but which ones do you think i should go with? they all have their advantages i guess. the first two have the super soft and sticky compound which would be good for grip, but this is gonna be more of a parking lot rider, not a rock rider, and with the highspeed it will go the X2SS compound they probably won't last long.
with that said the two face are the older harder compound which should last a little longer and look really good on there.

or a 2.2 tire could just bee too big for the rat rod. if that's the case a 1.9 tire could an option.


2.2" Baja MTZ
OD: 4.76" (121.1mm)
Width: 2.08" (52.9mm)
Inner Diameter: 2.2" (55.88mm)
Advanced X2 SS Compound (Super Soft & Super Sticky)

Dick Cepek Mud Country
OD:5.19" (132mm)
Width:2.05" (52.2mm)
Inner Diameter:2.2" (55.88mm)
Fit 2.2 wheel only
Advanced X2 SS Compound (Super Soft & Super Sticky)
Each tire weight: 4.5 oz / 128 g


RC4WD two face
Outer Diameter: 5.57" (141.5mm)
Width: 1.81" (46mm)
Inner Diameter: 2.2" (56mm)
Directional tires
Weight: 116g/4.1oz
Advanced X3 Soft & Sticky Compound


• Officially licensed by Maxxis
• 2.2" x 5.5" (56mm x 140mm), 2.05" width (52mm)

Of those options I like the 2 face, BUT the Axial 2.2 bfg krawlers or Maxxis treps would be hot too.

yeah, actually forgot about them. they actually look even better than the rc4wd tires. updated the post with those ones. both of them are almost better looking than the rc4wd ones.

The krawlers might work if you want a smaller 2.2, not sure how big the treps are in person yet, they are listed as 5.5" but you know how that goes.
