ummmm im pretty sure if put truck tires on a little buggy then it'll kill your engine or destroy your gears becuase the wheels take longer to make a full revolution

I do not think that doing that would be a good idea. Won't be good on the engine and what not.

you will need to put a smaller clutch bell on it, like the hpi 13/18 bell or put the single speed setup on it: http://www.clermontmotorsports.com/s...iff-kit/Detail

i was looking at single speed setups from redcat but the gear ratio is the same as 1st gear on my tornado alredy so i dont think there's any more low end power with the single speed. also are most hpi clutch bells work with redcat spur gears???

i put a single speed in my tsunami with a 13 tooth clutch bell and i never turned back, put one in one of my tornado's too.

that one is aluminum, you want this one, its steel: http://www.redcatracing.com/itemdeta...p?partno=81039

so thats a 14 tooth clutch bell??? would that go well with a 47 tooth spur gear on a tornado with volcano wheels on it???

get the 13 tooth hpi bell to use with the 44 tooth spur, it will give you all around good power.

they fit but will lack power because of the big wheels and the tornado is geared for small wheels.
