well we see how it turns out. I have start looking att rox lox 40 series but i think the step from 2.2 135mm outer diameter to 40 series 21,9mm outer diameter is to big.

And i dont want to run maxx sizes tires because they are so damn wide. So im quit limited on the tire options.


Anyone knows where to buy reenforced driveshaft for mad force axels?? Rc4wd did have new axelshafts in stainless steel but it seems the discontinued those.

I know what you mean...the 2.2s aren't big enough, but the 40s are too big. It's between a rock and a hardplace. It'll work itself out. keep up the good work! it's frustrating that rc4wd has discontinued certain parts...I know it's a business situation...you need to make what sells...but in the same respect...they are the only ones making certain parts...and you can't sell what you don't make. I say do a production run of 40-50 pieces...keep them in inventory and let us decide.

That thing looks sweet. I say finish it like you have it. And if you end up wanting bigger tires, have one of the experts on here narrow/shorten a 3.2 wheel/tire combo. I've seen em modify all kinds of tires/wheels. T
