I saw these tires on a Losi 5ive but I didn't realize how much bigger the Losi body is to the Redcat Rampage XSC truck body. Or without changing the body how can I raise the body post past they're max height to allow clearance for the tires?
You could get some aluminum tube or similar to sleeve the posts. You just cut the posts and use the sleeve to extend them. The woodster would be to long for the XSC.
The Trenchers are a big tire. Are you running all fronts? What wheel adapters are you using?
