    Do I need to upgrade anything for bigger tires?

    I've finally burned through my stock tires.

    The threads I've read about tires, it seems like everyone is going bigger?

    So, Truck is box stock aside from rear rpm carriers.

    If i got with some trenchers or something Do I Need to start upgrading axles?

    I'd really rather avoid that.

    I had to upgrade drive shafts with the stock tires.

    What motor are you running? 2s or 3s?

    You must be using lipos.

    I'm on the stock battery

    VXL-3 motor

    I'm also pretty easy on the truck.
    Only ever broke the rear carrier 7 months or so

    After upgrading tires, axles are normally the next thing to go.

    I run trenchers on one of my trucks that only ever sees nimh or 2s lipos. It does fine. Make sure your wheel nuts are tight before each run to help avoid stripping the hexes... The trenchers have way more bite.

    You should upgrade to metal hubs.

    Are you talking about SC or 2.8 size Trenchers.
