The tires are pretty good its labeled as on road tires i did take it off road grassy field tho it was haulin on offroad as well lol

The rear end is prone to spin outs tho i am thinking maybe changing the rear alignment camber idk if it will help or not

Thanks for the info on the tires,I want to get some speed runs in and maybe run on the road a little.As for the exhaust I would make a bracket using that other mounting point on the exhaust,or and please don’t take this the wrong way but if you really wana see a difference in your truck get rid of that Chinese Rovan exhaust,they are good for the money they are and that’s it,performance wise not good,I would throw a jet pro pipe on,I have a side mount ddm but I only bought it because it was on sale at ddm as a blemished pipe because of the chrome but you cannot tell the difference but to use it because it’s originally for an mt I had to cut off the rear left roll cage arm,if I could do it again I would have bought a rear mount jet pro only because I had wanted to build a cage for my truck before and having the side mount pipe puts the cage out to far,and whichever pipe you get from jet pro they make them specificlily for the xt and they mount up nice,but the performance you will get will be night and day!!!
