Can some1 post a pic of their 2065 servos so i can see exactly what position they need to be in. Or as long as they work does it matter? Also i couldnt get the servo savers to go back in the little notch cut out on top...does that matter. They all work fine and do their job...just want to prolong their life as long as possible!!!

They aren't too common here but they are around, kangaroos on the other hand are like a dime a dozen.
Yeah it's not too common at all here in the USA

Hey Kenny, since you've been running those joes for a while now how do you like them? Do they bash better than the stock tires?

It would definitely be a good idea to get wheels with 1/2" offset, like the stock Geodes have.  If you really want Big Joes, then buy them unmounted and get an offset wheel like the ProLine Desperado.

It not only helps with body rubbing, it affects the stability and handling of the truck, too. 

I like the Trencher X's, mounted on 1/2" offset Desperados.  A little narrower than the Joes, slightly taller, and a little lighter.  Great all around bashing tire.

I just drove for 45 minutes to go for a bash and it started bucketing down, that's what I get for going to a rainforest. Had to turn the car around and make the 45 minute trip home.



O man that sucks. I took mine out yesterday. It was awesome

I hadn't given much thought to the Big Joes being 40 series.  Go with the Trencher X's!

I'll try to think of some 40 series wheels that are 1/2" offset later.

I had the axle carrier screws 2 tight! Lol  I forgot i had tightened them. Didnt know u had to leave alittle slack in it. Also i was taking the steering assembly apart and oiling all that stuff put it all back together and had an extra screw! So i took it all back apart and cant figure out were it goes!
