    Vortex ss wheel/rim replacement or upgrade

    Β*HELLO FORUM, I'M A NOOBEE TO BUILDING RC'S. QUESTION FOR ANY ONE WHO CAN HELP. PURCHASED MY 1/10 VORTEX SS NITRO. RUNS INSANE. LOTS OF POWER, A LITTLE LIGHTWEIGHT, BUT FUN FOR SHURE. ANYWAY, TOOK MY TRUCK TO A LOCAL WIDE OPEN PARK TO GET SOME FULL THROTTLE RUNS AND IT WAS AWESOME, BUT I ALWAYS WANT TO PUSH IT TO THE LIMIT . I DECIDED TO TAKE THE TRUCK TO A SMALL MOUND OF DIRT THAT HAD MULTIPLE HUMPS ON TOP. RAN IT A LITTLE TOO FAST AND LANDED ON ONE FRONT WHEEL, OF COURSE SNAPPING THE WHEEL RIGHT OFF, ALSO NOTICED I CRACKED ONE OF THE REAR WHEELS AS WHEEL. WONDERING IF I COULD USE LARGER DIAMETER AND WIDER WHEEL/TIRE COMBO FROM 1/10 VOLCANO OR 1/10 CALDERA OR IS THAT TOO BIG, OR MAYBE FROM THE 1/8 AFTERSHOCK3.0. THEY ALL HAVE THE 12 MM HEX HUB. OR ALUMINUM RIMS. JUST DON'T WANT TO KEEP BREAKING RIMS.

    ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

    the volcano rims/wheels will fit.
    but as they are taller, you will lose some accelertion unless you run a smaller spur or pinion.
