Killer Treads – Duratrax Lockup ST Tires on the Traxxas Mini E-Revo VXL
The Traxxas 1/16 Mini E-Revo VXL is one awesome little monster truck. It is a blast drive due in part to its fast Velineon 380 brushless motor that can handle the voltage of a 3S LiPo battery, its plush cantilever type suspension, and awesome ground clearance. One, albeit minor, issue I have with this little mini monster truck are the tires. They are more well suited for an on road/asphalt vehicle than an off road vehicle that is ready to tear up dirt, sand and more. No worries, though, as Duratrax has come to the rescue with their Lockup ST 2.2 mounted on black wheels.
The Duratrax Lockup ST 2.2 tires on black wheels are sold in pairs and are just a bit bigger than the stock Traxxas Mine E-Revo VXL with the following dimensions: Inner Diameter: 2.2″ (56mm), Outer Diameter: 3.3″ (84mm), Width: 1.6″ (41mm).
The tires are made from C2 soft compound rubber for great performance and have an aggressive tread that is sure to create phenomenal rooster tails when accelerating in loose dirt, sand and more.
While I installed the four tires that I received on my Traxxas 1/16 Mini E-Revo VXL, they will also fit perfectly on the Traxxas Summit, HPI Savage XS Flux and many 1/10 vehicles due to their 12mm hex adapter.
Ok, Ok, I’ve told you all about these tires, but how do they perform. In a word, AWESOME! I quickly and easily installed the Lockup ST 2.2 tires on my Mini E-Revo, charged up a 3S LiPo battery so I’d have ample power, and headed out to my kids mulch and sand covered playscape in the backyard for some fun. On pulling back the throttle, as expected, mulch, dirt and sand went flying as the truck launched itself forward! The truck had much more traction than the stock tires as it ripped around my backyard and through the grass it seemed to act as a mini thatcher as dead grass went flying left and right. If you have a Mini E-Revo, Summit or Savage XS these are must have tires for sure! I’m now wishing I put these on my truck long ago!
