    Question Short Course wheels/tires on 1/16 e revo?

    So Im curious if short course wheels and tires would fit the 1/16 e revo? I did some googling, didnt really find anything, maybe I wasn't searching with the right keywords. Not sure if this has been addressed before, my apologies if it has.

    The 1/16 slash tires/wheels will, but I don't know about aftermarket ones.

    There is no point, the slash tires are smaller and dont grip nearly as well. Mine dont even grip well enough to do wheelies with a 10th scale system on 3s but it will do standing backflips with the erevo tires

    You are right, but he may want to do a conversion. Or he wants less traction, but IMO why would anybody want to do that?

    I think the OP is probably talking about using 1/10 scale SC wheels/tires (is. 2.2/3.0) on his MERV...

    Ok, that makes more sense. I don't know about those, but my mini summit can handle these: (with lighter throttle and on snow)


    So I don't see why the 1/10 slash tires couldn't work. This guy was using some big skinny tires on his merv: Thread
