    Proline Prime 2.8

    Hi,
    I'm looking at Proline Prime 2.8. I was wondering if I need to gear down or are they the same size as stock tires. If I need to gear down what gearing should I use. Also I was planning to glue them myself, any advice on glueing?


    Btw my car is a Rustler VXL with a Hot racing transmission. I run Floureon 5200 mah 30c 7.4v 2s Lipos. I drive mostly street.

    Will these 2.2 tires fit without having to change gearing?

    BUT I would highly suggest getting the RPM wide front arms.

    OK thanks. What do you mean by two two pairs of rear offsets?

    Also do I need to gear down to use those tires?

    Wheel offset is the distance between the center of the wheel surface where it mounts to the hub compared to the actual center of the wheel. The further the center of the wheel is to the outside of the wheel, the closer the wheel is to the car. So all in all the wheels in the front compared to the back may be different. If you were to put front wheels on the back they may stick out further. 2.2 tires/wheels are different size than 2.8. 2.8 is bigger. If you buy 2.2 they need to be on wheels meant for 2.2.

    Will I need to change gearing to prevent the 2.8 Primes from overheating my motor?

    The Anacondas I have are about 3.9in and the Primes are 4.4in. I was thinking of the gearing being 23/90 for the Primes. Will that work?

    They're the exact same size... And if you thought about 'wide' arms... It means if you use rear offset in the front AND back you'll get better steering and you can swap out tires.

    Rustler stock wheel size is 2.8
    Tire diameters and widths will vary.
    I have a set of talons on 2.8 wheels that are huge compared to my anacondas, also on 2.8 wheels.
