Monster Truck Insanity – Little Monster Truck, Scale Tires

Hey people and Glad Thursday! I hope wherever you’re studying this, that the climate is as good as it’s the place I’m at – excessive 70’s and sunny. It’s prime “get again outside along with your r/c’s” climate!

I’ve obtained a pair e-mails to get by this week, so let’s do it.

Good afternoon,
I’ve seen a variety of your articles these days and the way you’ve got been
that includes a superb quantity of rc monster truck content material. First, thanks.
The extra publicity to the pastime is excellent! I believed with
these function being extra prevalent as of late, you is perhaps
in looking on the new BlackMarket RC Fighter chassis. Jake has
finished a tremendous job designing it and it nonetheless makes use of the Losi LMT
drivetrain. He’s on Facebook when you’d like to have a look. Thank
you for contemplating,

Hey David, thanks for the e-mail. I’ve truly not tried any of the BlackMarket RC choices, however I needed to publish this right here to strengthen them as I’ve seen the stuff they’re doing and it appears strong. I hope to check out a few of their wares quickly!

Hello Doug from Madrid, Spain!
First issues first, sorry if my English sounds a little bit humorous, I´m a Spaniard, …
Nicely, I´m pondering in getting a brand new rig, and the Granite/Large Rock BLX is certainly one of my favourites, with the Rival MT10 actually shut (much less energy out of the field, but in addition very sturdy) and much off, a 4WD Slash/Stampede (actually costly right here).
However I can´t assist loving and watching the JConcepts suspension set for Traxxas –you´ll know what I´m referring to- and this set is what made me take into consideration including actual huge macho wheels to an “OEM monster truck”…
My most important purpose is so as to add “actual” or “scale” monster truck wheels (JConcepts-Proline-Clodbuster dimension) to the one I lastly get, or possibly to my beloved and upgraded 2WD brushless Ruckus. When browsing the web and your good articles about monster vans, I noticed you had been making an attempt to do the identical, and that´s the rationale I´m writing you proper now.
Please notice that I nonetheless don´t have the automobile (besides the Ruckus) however I´m in contact with a number of RC boards and I´ve learn some posts which will assist. Additionally some Youtube movies and issues like that.

Hold it on all 4´s, and cheers from Madrid, Spain!


Hey Anthony, thanks a lot for the e-mail!

So from what I collect right here, you’ve obtained a basher sort monster truck and you’re desirous to run some strong axle type scale kicks on it?

First off, given you’re mulling over some 1/10 sized choices, I’ll throw my opinion in for the Granite BLX. Had mine for years and like it. Whereas I’m a strong axle man, I like throwing a 3S battery into the Granite and going to city. Easy, rugged and enjoyable.

Okay, so assuming you’ve got an ARRMA Granite sized monster truck, I might strongly advocate that you just concentrate on including a set of two.2 sized JConcepts Midwest wheels and one of many tire varieties they make in that dimension, as will probably be A LOT easier and doubtless extra enjoyable that including full dimension Clod wheels/tires to a comparatively small truck.

I’d go along with a set of gold compound JConcepts tires, no matter mannequin, as a result of you’ll undergo an excellent smooth blue compound tire fast when you run it on laborious surfaces. The golds will final you!

You’ll have to change your Granite hexes to 12mm (ARA310816 is the half quantity) to suit the Midwests. You additionally could should open up the axle stub gap within the wheel barely with a drill as nicely. I say “possibly” as I’ve truly not finished this on my Granite, I’m nonetheless operating the inventory wheels and tires.

That’s the massive benefit of the Stampede- it has 12mm hexes and you may simply use the Midwest wheels from the get-go with no modding wanted.

Let me know what you go along with!

If in case you have a query, be happy to shoot it to me- [email protected]. Till subsequent time hold it on all 4’s!
