    Huge 4x4 slash

    Putting huge wheels on my slash. Has anybody else put massive wheels on theirs. I have 10mm offset adapters from 12 to 17mm hex and good offset wheels in the mail.

    Welcome to the Traxxas forums!

    Those are huge!
    Just be careful to watch your temp.
    Be prepared to replace many broken drive shafts... way too much rotating mass!

    Above all else... have fun!

    I did it with a 2wd slash, broke a rear axle almost every time I hit the brakes! (Stock plastic axles, once I went metal I didn't have that problem anymore)

    Thank you, it was a little unstable due to how high it was. Never got stuck though, ha!

    Ha, yeah it was big. I put 3.8 badlands on it, with a proline 1972 Chevy truck body for the stampede. I think at that time I had the vxl3s system in it, the darn thing was fast!

    I put the smallest 3.8s I have on there just to see. To my surprise they actually don't look half bad and my basher body is trimmed pretty good for clearance. Sorry for the dark pictures, I'm doing some electrical work in my garage.

    Well the tires are proline shockwaves 3.8 on proline f11 17mm hex wheels. I do have the proline protrac suspension kit and Hot Racing 10mm offset 17mm hex adapters on there. I have never ran those tires on there but they do clear everything on my setup. I have a vxl6s and a 2200kv motor from the new erevo in there so I know that will handle it. I also have a fully upgraded driveline. If I get a chance to run it tomorrow I will try it on 4s to see what I can break, see if those tires are even plausible. I put some mx38s on there first and there was no chance with those. The shockwaves are the lightest 3.8 tire I've ever come across. Might actually work.

    Do you think with out the protrac suspension it will still clear the chassis

    It would be really close I think. The protrac arms are 10mm longer than stock. Looks like it would be really close. Wow that's a rusty MIP axle.

    Can it still steer with full movement, or did you have to limit your EPAs?

    It could still steer with full movement. The inside of the tire was about 1.5mm from hitting the shock guard.

    Hope you have it geared low enough that the wheels don't balloon much!

    Looks like without both the HR 10mm and Pro-Track 10mm additions it would be an awful tight fit.
    Maybe I'm missing something but from this measurement without either one of them, looking at the sidewall of the tire any ballooning will hit the chassis.
    It's hard to tell from just the pic but thought I'd throw in my 2.
    It's most decidedly a bold look.
    Best of luck OP, I hope it works out for you.

    After looking (and thinking) on the pic perhaps when the tire balloons they will get a bit thinner and make it with just a single 10mm extension, HR or PL extension.

    It will be interesting to see how it performs.

    I got 10mm extensions. And big offset wheels in the mail. Tires are around 6"x3" weather it works or not I will post after I get my set up right

    If they made a bulk head the got rid of the toe I think it'd be alot easier

    If you have the Platinum/Ultimate Edition Slash 4x4, you can swap your left and right rear aluminum hub carriers and get only 1 of toe in.

    Yea but it wouldn't move the end of the arm away from the chassis any. Might buys some of them tho if it's a super tight fit

    I'm not exactly sure on the offset. There was no info on the offset. I can only go off the pics. 36$ for a whole set from China. But it looks like they are more than 1/2 on offset

    So I got a chance to run it today with the shockwaves on there. I made it about halfway through an SMC 6700mah 4s pack and snapped a cross pin on the rear diff out put of the MIP x duty. Now, my axles might not be in the best condition considering how rusty they are. The truck actually did pretty good. I was quite surprised by how well it handled. It's only 50 degrees out where I live but the ESC only got up to 72 and the motor topped out at 115. I have it geared 18/54. Overall, if you have the proper mods it might be doable. You would have to run it longer to get definitive results, but I do think it's possible. Biggest pro I noticed was the ground clearance, biggest con I noticed is that the body will likely need extreme amounts of trimming.
