What do u guys think of the dirt hawgs? are they any good for stadium trucks?
August 3, 2003 at 6:11 pm #46511
they suck mayjor azz.

August 3, 2003 at 9:29 pm #46513
everyone on traxxas forums recommend the dirt hawgs all round.

what about proline 2.2 Mashers that look pretty nice for thick grass and loose gravel. I personnaly with experiance dont like ribbed tires as the dont seem to last as long as the deep tread.. but this might have been because i was using tamiya ribbed tyres of the stadium thunder pretty bad…

thanks vr-4 and zac, ill have a look into the dirt hawgs and the masher 2000 cause they look pretty mad and look like the could handle a lot.

mashers are for monster trucks and dirt hogs were made for 4wd trucks.
use either proline bow tie t’s in the back losi silver or gold step pin or fuzzys and pro line the edge up front.

ok then, ill have to ask the guys at mr toys (i no its a little kid store but they got a mad rc section and its close) i no they sell dirt hawgs but i dunno about mashers and i dunno how much they are anyway.

August 4, 2003 at 11:14 pm #46555
hey what about proline the edge up front and dirt hawgs at the rear would that work
August 4, 2003 at 11:43 pm #46558
arent “the edge” like the tires i already have, id rather have matching front and back tires like the nitro mt
August 5, 2003 at 12:06 am #46568
then i would recomend the dirt hawgs or mashers very good grip long lasting relyable tire

you got a 2wd stadum truck why dont you use the tires that are made for it. mashers are made for 2wd monster trucks like stampeed ect. dirt hawgs are got street/hard packed clay or dirt.
1 thing you must remember is that a staduem trucs trans is not like a monster truck trans you cant spin a par of machers its gonna be to hard on your trans eng. ect.
you want somthing with long whare and high grip use step pin and nip them “cut the tips of the pins off” this will give you more traction.
go to the losi web site or the proline web site and ask them there gonna tell you the same stuff i ben telling you.
only 4wd cars come with dirt hogs there a deep street tred they suck off road unless your cars 4wd.
mashers have tomuch grip and a stadum truck cant handle it becouse your gonna need some extra balls ta spinn them about a 15 turn or less and i used a alu. top shaft in my losi and i had sand paws on it “step up from the mashers” and used a 9turn single and snaped the part of my topshaft that goes to my slipty in 1/2

wats good bout the edge tires they look identical to the ones i already have and all they do is do dowies everywhere when i keep turning one way r they surposed to do that on like every type of terrian cause i can do dowies on tiles grass dirt rocks road brick driveways everythin
August 5, 2003 at 8:41 pm #46596
i rekon Big Joes ;);)
nah i personally would go wit dirt hawgs who cares if the are for 4wd nitrochicken from traxxas recons they are good for the rustler its 2wd
August 5, 2003 at 8:54 pm #46599
yea i might go wit dirt hawgs or get the bow ties i will have to ask the guys at mr toys and see what they have and what they recomend cause if i cant get bow ties then i might have to get dirt hawgs
August 5, 2003 at 9:00 pm #46602
bow ties pfft i would rather hpi X pattern than them (no offence VR-4) just dont like those sorte of tires allways been a monstar man
August 5, 2003 at 10:07 pm #46615
whats good about the x pattern
August 5, 2003 at 11:35 pm #46616
well i just think that they look better (grip wise) and last longer and they are HPI are relyable brand…not saying proline isnt as it is a great brand
August 6, 2003 at 12:24 am #46623
what about dirt hawgs on the back and the x pattern on the front? cause dirt hawgs r supposedly made for 4wd trucks but if they r only on the back wit the x pattern on the front shouldnt it be pretty good then?
August 6, 2003 at 11:12 am #46643
nah if your gunna do that you may as well use VR-4 setup
August 10, 2003 at 10:03 pm #46776
i just got sum dirt hawgs for the back they hoon they r mad as and im prob gonna get sum for the front tomorrow
August 11, 2003 at 2:36 am #46777
theres a reason stadeum trucks all use pin type on the back and ribed on the front.
August 11, 2003 at 4:34 pm #46786
and that is…..
is it so that the back tires sit where they are but still spin and the front ones use ribbed so they can move forwards and side to side right
August 12, 2003 at 1:50 am #46801
alrighty i have finished my new tire setup here it is:
On The Front:
Road Hawg 2.2″
Eagle Chrome Rims
On The Back:
Dirt Hawg 2.2″
HPI MT Mesh Chrome Rims
