Why does everyone automatically assume that a rig of this size needs more than one motor??? lol!!!

Alot of folks are mis-informed about motor kv, gearing, torque and voltage.

Simple trademark of Holmes sums it up. "Gear down, volt up!"™

Still holding up great with the rear printed axles.


Some of the first VP VXDs universals with VXD locker up front working fine on the 21lbs truck.
VP V2 AR60 AL axle housing.

Great new look there. Almost like floatation tires.

Yah, I like them for a second set of tires. Waiting on some snow here!

Debating the foam setup but I think Ill leave the rears stock and add a little more foam up front.

I love it! Those tires look great on that rig. How's the grip with those things? Hard as Imex Claw Dawgs in winter or softer and somewhat grippy closer to more modern compounds.

I got the gold compound which I believe is the firmer of the two offered. Its a firm-ish compound but the tire still really conforms well due to the large spans of material. If that makes sense. Ie wide contact patch and tall sidewalls. I like them.

I was thinking of using those tires on my smt with some crushlock wheels for trailing how would you consider the tires for that? I’d go with the blue compound so softer then what you have now.

Cool. Yah, as you stated, I have the firmer compound, just due to the weight of this truck. I have not glued the tires to the wheels just yet, as I am thinking the stock foams just may hold this truck up.

For trailing, I am not sure about this tire, especially on a lighter rig, unless you ran a super soft foam that let the tire conform. Just not alot of tread for grabbing rocks. They didn't like the snow and slipped around on any sort of climb.

A few TTC pictures from this weekend. Didnt have a winch, so that hurt me a few times. Big truck on 1/10 courses but it did ok.
