Well I like my Earthquake 8e, which I changed over to a Backdraft 8e so yes I like it I wish I had both!! But I wanted to go racing and the Backdraft was the ticket.

Bumpers can be had here.... http://t-bone-racing.net/cart.php?m=...arch=backdraft

Tire and wheel combo can be had here..... http://cgi.ebay.com/NIB-Big-Blocks-W...item2eb1e1e709

Iordered some of these tires for my Backdraft 3.5, great price on them, these are not listed as Proline badlands but they look the same and probably are.

And when you click on one of the bumpers, just scroll down the page and you'll see the "value package" to buy the 2 of them.

what is the huge truck in the first photo? I really want a brushless 4wd truck for bashing with those huge tires haha. i might get the earthquake. do you like your 8e? do you think the drivetrain will take the stress of some taller tires or should i get a flux,or convert a nitro truck for the stronger drivetrain? with your collection you should have some good insight thanks in advance

LOL, thats a loaded question!
the earthquake 8E is really nice.
but you cant compare a $300 8E to a $600 flux. the flux is larger, heavier, more expensive and can handle 6s lipo. the 8E can take 4s.
both are really nice IMO.
both need alittle work to be really solid trucks.
the 8E's seem to need alittle diff work(shims) the savage needs some drivetrain upgrades as well....if you want to run 6s.

i have a new earthquake 8e coming next friday!!! im gonna open up the diffs and see if they need to be shimmed. other than that i hear good things about the 8E's.
and ali's vids on the 8E's on youtube show him bashing them pretty hard!

Traxxas Summit 1/10.

But Greenpot just changed his wheels & tires, those on the pictures aren't the original ones.

hello, scuse my delay for responding...the wheels is Axial Beadlock 8 holes 40 serie and the tire is RC4WD Monster size 40 serie mud slingers....its very nice tire for crawling. The earthquake 8e is not the same size of the Summit and Erevo...the summit is the truck with a very nice suspension for crawling, bashing and jumping

traxxas summit stock
