Haven't worked on this much, hoping to get back to it in the coming months. I like the wheelyking axle width, but still struggling with the tire and wheel combo.


Even at 5 1/2 inches, the mudslingers just feel short.

depends on what you want it to look like lol.

This cxt has 16.00R20 (52" tall 16" wide) Michelin XZL's on the front and 24R21 (54" tall 24" wide) XZL's on the back, I would say you are pretty close to right size tire going by the radius of front wheel wells.

I've seen that truck before, its pretty sweet. And that is sort of the kind of build I had in mind. The problem is the stock model had 6 inch tall tires, and the 52s on the 1:1 are significantly taller than standard semi truck tires. I think the truck you posted had something like 13 inches of lift.

One of my chassis ideas, just sheet metal. Was going to use the aluminum channel to beef it up. Might toss this idea and just get some steel tubing and weld something up.

It really depends on what scale your body really is, I have seen those exact bodies listed as 1:6,1:8 and 1:10 with the smaller version listed under both 1:10 and 1:12.

I would guess its between 1:8 and 1:10 since my f350 is supposed to be 1:6 but is really 1:8 and the bed is larger than the cxt beds from what I have seen. The 1:1 cxt trucks use a stock ford 8' long bed and they look pretty small compared to the cab.

16.00r20 16x52" tire scaled down is
1:8 = 2"wide x 6.5"tall / 2.5" rim diameter
1:9 = 1.77" wide x 5.77" tall / 2.2 rim

The Iron Revenge CXT has re-arched stock suspension so I would bet 4" lift max and it could clear those tires up front with 0 lift, the rear fender openings being so small is what kills it for lowering it. Oh and they did lift it after that photo so maybe the new setup is 13" or something but in my opinion it looks kinda goofy now like its on stilts.

Here are two pics of my f350 bed which is supposed to be a 6.5' short bed ford compared to a 1:1 8' bed

It's definitely the bigger body. Surfing rc4wd's site they have a 7.55 x 3.5 inch Mudslinger in the 40 series. I am kinda leaning in that direction. I did just for the hell of it send them an e-mail asking about some sizes in between the tallest 2.2 tire and the 40 series. Along with asking about how much some custom height Mil-Spec ZXLs might cost me

This is the full body sitting on my HPI Crawler King, wheel base, Wheely King. That's when the 5.5s look a bit to short lol.

oh I know yours is the bigger version, I'm just saying I'm not sure what it exactly scales out to but I think its around the 1/8th or 1/9th not 1/6th like nb sold it. I would bet if you had a tire in the 6-6.75 height it would fill the fender completely, heck if you look at my one pic you can see I have 3" of clearance just with the bed sitting on table so I should be able to fit a 6" tire completely stuffed in fender.

I need to find someone local with one of those trucks to compare the beds lol. How does the 5.5 tire fit in rear fenders compared to fronts?

I have a set of large BFG AT tires I'll have to measure sometime, I think they are 6.5 tall x 2.5 wide and fit a 3.0 or 3.2 rim cant remember.

I'll get some measurements later today. Boss just texted us to tell us we aren't working because of the snow we got here in Idaho.

Just a heads up prolines 2.2 bfg's are 5.65" and their swamper 2.2 XL is 5.8 so that might work out for you .

Forgot I had saved some stuff on Amazon for this build and the wife ordered and got them shipped out today with part of our tax return.

It will be a HPI Wheelyking/ Traxxas Emaxx hybrid. Dual motor emaxx trans into the HPI trans and out to HPI axles.

Parts showed up. Hooray, can't wait to get started on this again.
HPI just needs a little trimming with a cut off wheel and the U joints bolt right up.



And the chassis needs stretched lol.

Finally got the front axle mounted up. Needs some tweaking and trimming, but it is starting to finally take shape.
