    Your go 2 1/10 scale tires.

    What are your go to 1/10 scale tires? We all have tires we love, mine are my 2.2 Pro-Line Sand Paws! These tires work well in grass, loose dirt, sand, snow. They are wheelie on demand, big roost throwing tires. They are not as good on pavement, but I can still pull a wheelie on demand. I have been using these for 3 years now and they still have tons of tread left. They are also about the same size as stock!

    While I love these I was curious what everyone else was running in the 1/10 scale size. I know many run the BIG Badlands, Trenchers, Mashers and even Big Joes, but IMO these are way to big for me. What are some good stock sized options?

    I got the Badland short course tires back in January and they are pretty great. I still want to try the trenchers in the same size next time I get tires.

    They definitely grip, the wheelies aren't that crazy though. I think my suspension setup might help with it.

    I have the trenchers and love them. After balancing, they are one of the smoothest tire's I have used so far. Like floating on air. I have my wheelie bar on low always, as I am not a fan of wheelies. They do come off the the ground though as far as my bar allows. Have a Swami low boy on the way.








    I use them mostly on a football field with 30 more yards on all sides. Sweetness!




    I use Duratrax Banditos for pavement. Nice tire also! Only if balanced.



    I like the larger tires, more stability. Smoother ride.

    I run these 2.2/3.0 Badland ebay knock-offs. $25 for the set of 4. Surprisingly decent tires! My Rustler wears a lot of Slash leftovers!

    I have Duratrax Lockup and sixpack that match stock weight. I'm also loving Proline Mashers on the VXL. These are more aggressive and run over bigger obstacles and are only 5.5oz. stock wheels are 4oz.

    The do-all/master-of-none tire is the Pro-Line Trencher. Hands down.



    I also like SCT tires on my Rusty too.



    The do-all tire:
    Pro-Line Trencher

    The grass and rough stuff dominator:
    Pro-Line Badlands

    The street master:
    JConcepts G-Locs

    Other excellent tires:
    Pro-Line Dirt Hawg
    JConcepts Choppers
    Pro-Line Gladiators

    Just my $0.02.

    Great attempt! I have heard worse but Julip? I think it's Julep too minty for me, I hate mint!

    jv, I run solely off road, if I wanted to run on road I would purchase an onroad r/c. The Rustler is a stadium truck which means offroad to me.
    I shy'd away from the forum as it was/is over run with the need for speed. To each is own but 100 plus mph to me is not entertaining but a 45 min. run on the track is stress relief.

    You should build a 100 mph car, or
    At least watch or drive one. It's quite an exciting experience.

    Sorry Grip but I've seen them worked on them and even driven one. I still do not see what all the fuss is about. Speedsters have to put a lot more time and money in their cars for a quick 30 second run.
    There are plenty clubs around here that have formed but and I hate to say this, the people at our local track are friendlier than any speedster I've personally met at these local speed clubs.
    This is why I shy away from getting involved in conversation on the subject.

    No worries. I have both now, a speed ride and a basher. I do think the rustler is more at home on the street. My pede 4X4 is very capable of handling the off-road fun.

    Based on findings posted in the Slash forums, I sprung for a set of Traxxas Kumho SCT tires, this past winter, and likewise found them to be quite effective on cold, damp, debris-strewn, winter roads. I don't yet have a spring/summer go-to tire, though, but I'm going to be trying the Bandito ST's, eventually.

    I like the choices you've made with your body, tires, and bumper. All looks nice and functional together

    Thanks. Unfortunately, I can't seem to stick with one setup on the Rustler, as I'm already preparing to go back to the Baja Bug look I had previously.
