    I'm looking for an alternative wheel/tire package for my Losi MTXL. The stock set look great and are huge, but it is clear they are just a wee bit too big for the truck and the wobble is robbing it of some power. I'd like to try something a little smaller, perhaps a set that's intended for the Redcat Rampage. Anyone tried this or know what I'll need to make RedCat rims fit?

    That just looks plain wrong!
    The MTXL wheels are great - I have them on my 'X'.

    Agreed, it's your rig, and your call, but for me it just doesn't look right - IMhO!

    I threw the wheels from my Baja on the MTXL. Now that looked stupid. I think what he did in the vid works out really well. So far there just arent a lot of wheels to chose from for the MTXL. It is out of scale. Eventually and if it becomes more popular there might start to be an aftermarket, but so far the selection is very very limited. I would say it is in fact limited to the standard monster clawz that comes with it, and the wheels in this video, whatever they are.

    OP, if you want to stiffen the wheels up some. Have you tried the ducttape trick people use to prevent ballooning? That does seem to make it a little less 'bouncy'.
