Not without mods. The 1/8ths have a 17mm hub, and the 1/10ths have a 12mm hub. If you got a hex adapter to a 17mm they would fit

Lol its all good, if you forget how to spell it, just read it backwards haha. Uh one of the biggest i would say would be the moabs http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXSTA4&P=7 thats the tallest i found. Check out tires on towerhobbies.com. I like the 2.2 tires and rims, cause it gives it a more scale look, and it has more tire than rim.

Well i just looked real fast, and it looks like there arent much 2.8 tires that arent for the t maxx. So either you would need to get some adapters. Check these you http://www.junfac.com/shop/index.php...=index&cPath=7 you can adapt it so its 14 or 17mm hubs, then you could fit t maxx ones. You would need to get a different clutch bell though to make up for such big tires.

There are some 2.8" wheels and tires you can get. The Jato and Stampede run 12mm hex hubs and 2.8" wheels. My brother has the Moabs and they are about the same overall diameter as the stock wheels and tires but they are narrower and definitely don't have as mush traction as the stock tires.

I'm gonna have to get some new wheels and tires, 1 cracked, 1 broke, and another had the foam break and ball up. I am now running 3 of my brother's old wheels and tires.

If you do some checking I think some of the wheels that come from HPI have the 17mm adaptors or some nice looking wheels that are the larger size with 14mm hex's on them [&o]

Its entirely HPI Savage suspension. The best 40 dollars spent, but the most tedious 4 hours used. Though the CV shafts are from a Team Losi LST.
