Saint Dragon - other rims/tyres?

Recommended Posts

Could I somehow put hexes and other rims/tyres on a Saint Dragon? From the manual, it seems that the space is too limited ( driveshaft axle too short).

Definitely. 5mm wide hexes will work. Although if you want 2.2" wheels for modern tyres then JC Racing products do Hotshot style wheels that will fit the triangular mounting from the kit.

I used 5mm wide hexes with my Saint Dragon (and fire dragon)

I thought it would be too short as well, but there's enough length;

Good! Then I know that the are options possible. The original rims are not my cup of tea (Assam, please). Love the Hotshot ones.

I am just getting another Project list idea ... I may need to quit work become a Project List Manager instead, I think. :D
