You know thats so obvious and I do that kind of stuff with my 1:1 scale car
hobby all the time I have no idea why I didn't do it :)
Okay so hopefully they are more offset to the outside of the truck, if thats
the case then I wont have to go wide suspension arms, but I'll need some
tires. The stock Revo tires look a bit on-road for my liking, however I
haven't seen them in the *** so they could be just as chunky as the
I'll have to go looking for tires then, I'll let you all know how I go, I
dont remember seeing many aftermarket tires for a Revo (but I haven't got
one so I haven't really *looked* for em)
I still hope the tires end up being roughly the same size (OD that is)
otherwise my E-maxx will look a bit funny :)
