After fighting with the tires all week, I threw my 2.2 Tsl's back on and went for a run with my buddy Trent. Shout out to the new Wraith 1.9!

Looks like an awesome place to run I liked the big tired/deep dish combo, what didn't work out with 'em?

Every time i got the rim seated a small portion of the bead would pop out on the front side. I tried everything I could think of, including gluing the inner bead to the ring. Nothing held the bead in place....

Mounted them on a set of Axial beadlocks I had laying around, zero issues. I think the Proline bead just doesn't want to work with the deep dish's. The Axial rims do not have enough offset to clear the tires of the frame rails, even with a 10mm Traxxas hex hub. (stock 6mm)

So I did the irresponsible thing, I went to http://www.lockeduprc.com/19-Wheels_c_1.html and ordered new rims !
I need more rims like I need a.... never mind.
Adjustable offset and the deep dish look on a beautifully machined aluminum rim. I would have spent more, but the beadlock rings I wanted were out of stock...

I weighed my 2.2 set of mounted rims/tires. 3.2lbs!

My spare tire/rim is 7.6 oz.

So 4 should weigh in at 30.4 oz(1.9lbs)

So I have just over 1.3lbs of water in my foams!

Might be why she is so planted

Yeah I have always run the cheapest wheels I could buy...

Usually Axial beadlocks, or rc4wd steelies...

But I decided to splurge on this rig and go with some really nice rims. Ordered the Recluse btw, wideners and the wide 885 hubs for front, and 665 for the rear. all said about $120. Rings will be another $30 or so, when the Tarantulas come back in stock.

I dried out the foams over night and everything weighed up @ 2lbs, 5oz. so heavier than I thought, but then I hav the Axial wheel weight kit up front(4oz) and dense foams in the rig. probably making up for the rest of the weight.
Going to run her today, as the wifey is spendin the day with her mom. Planning on a long run with the Doggo. I have 22,000 mah charged up lol.

The hood looked kinda plain with the decal removed, so I went to my store of old paint... Turns out the black I thought was flat was Semigloss and the Orange exploded every where into orange peal and splatters. Sigh....
Anyway it will work for a rig that sees rocks on a regular basis. Its really not a bad 5 footer.

They ARE HERE!



Pictures do not do these wheels justice.
Assembled and mounted the LockedURc Recluse rims with 7mm wideners....



I am glad I went with the 885 hubs up front, everything clears by about 1mm. The rear has the 665 hubs for a slightly narrower track.
