Truck looks great, the lockable diffs are a wonderful idea. Will the tires work on other 2.2 wheels or are they only designed for the Venom wheels?

The Ridge Line tires are a new concept and only work with our new Beadlox wheel design. Your going to appreciate how easy they are to assemble and use compared to what your used to now. The wheel will work on any 12mm hex drive axle and vice versa, you can use other popular wheels on the Creeper axle.

The rim and rings measure 44mm wide total front to back. The tire is 55mm wide. (127mm X 55mm R2.2in)

Nice job guys, it looks great I like the ideas for the axles and shocks. What about dig options?

I'll be honest when I first saw this I thought "kinda cool, but looks like an ax10" then I took the time to read and study the pics. Now I have to say this has got some of the coolest features of any kit truck.

Also, anyone else think there is a lot of extra room on the bottom transfer case of that tranny? I thinks maybe a few parts in there and you'd have a 2 speed, or maybe internal dig... or both?

Anyway, awesome job Venom. Definately going on my wish list.

Got to say it looks good the video is impressive. I'm surprised it didn't get a factory dig? A guy sure doesn't have to wait very long for the next new thing to show up that's for sure.

Looks very promising, especialy the linkage set up. The lockers are a sweet idea, and as long as the mechanism to switch them holds up under load and wear, you'll be selling a ton of the axle kits! Thanks for giving us another option and some great new features

And not that it's crawler related, but your Segad C1...SICK! Nice work guys.

WOW, just when I was about to buy a Axial Rock Racer, this thing comes out! Two questions, when is blue coming out? And, how will it be as a backyard basher. Toss a truck body on there and you've got a good looking pre-runner.

I like the new rig. However I would just use one axle in the rear of my comp rig and set it up so the axle is unlocked when my dig is in free wheel.

I saw that as well there is a ton of free space in that tranny it is almost like they have plans for it

I tell you what I dont think i have seen a rig with this many features that I have been wishing would come on a rig ever.. really exciting you guys did your home work big time good job....
