View Full Version : Clod tires for Stampede???

06-20-2000, 05:48 PM
Ok i've seen all the readers rides that have clodbuster wheels and tires on Traxxas Stampede, I want to know how they did it. Are the wheels a direct fit or do you need a special part or do you have to make a part yourself?

This is a question for the Hingeboy. I'll ask him to take a look here and see if he knows how to do it.

The easiest way to do it and maintain the correct offset for the steering etc. is to take a set of the stock Stampede rims and epoxy them inside of the monster truck wheels you want to use. Unfortunately this means a very large hole in the center of the outer wheel so that you can fit a nut driver inside to fasten the rim onto the axle. One word of caution, the big stomper tires are a lot more work for the drivetrain to turn.

I think that there's a clod conversion kit for the stampede. You need like a special chassis to house the two motors, wheel adapter, etc, etc. Good Luck!
