I got new shoes!!!! I had been told these tyres would be too narrow for these rims but I thought they'd fit. RC4WD's Rok Loks mounted on Axial 8 hole rims. I'll get some comparison shots up later and some pics of them on the truck. They sure are big.

Ok so yesterday i noticed a popping or clicking in my tranny. So i took it apart tonight and a bearing was blown out. I had a spare 1 so i replaced it.


So i cleaned all the swamp water out and was wondering if i should put some of this in there then seal it back up?

Doesn't it say on the tranny not to put any oil in it? I don't think your supposed too, I know them being plastic that it doesn't really need to be lubed. I'm not 100% sure on the summit tranny though

Don't you want the tires to loose air so they can flex and grip more?

Nope. I crawl on rocks maybe 2 times every 6 months and these mudslingers are so stiff anyway. I mainly run in creeks or just bash on dirt hills or dirt trails so i dont think it will make a huge diff.

Roughly 5" from the bottom of the battery doors. It might droop a little with batteries in it though.
