after driving this thing with the 29" tires alittle smaller than what i had on my loyale and its alittle bit lighter im realy missing the little ea82m with everything being so close in gearing and weight there isent much differance in power if any between the stock ej22v2 and the ea82m i built i think the ea82 might even have more power with the ac on high

the only real differance i can see is the ea82m lasted 20k miles and the ej22 has 300k on it and still counting but that little ea82 was so much fun to beat on lol especialy changing timing belts in a foot and a half deep mud pit at midnight when its 30° outside lol

You need more lift, more trimming, or less tire.

Those back wheels especially are going to stuff against the lip of the wheel well and act like putting the brakes on the first time you get on some real rough terrain.

Why you like those tires? They good offroading in your area? Mean no mud no wet and such.

well the brand sponsers racing events out by my house and they hold up realy good in my terrain there awsome sand tires there also realy good an any loose surface and snow there all terain tires not mud tires but i did do alittle mudding yesterday and they did great i have a set on my rc car too  yes they make them in a scale version too or close too slightly different tread more a mud tire than a allterain tire but still same brand same basic tread pattern

 

the bigest reason though they were cheaper than 2 tires from any other manufaturer

i can go from sand to mud to snow to rocks all on the same trail so i need a all around tire that dose everything and this is my grocery getter so it needs to work good onroad too heres a quick vid going from the highway to my house coming back from the store

my property starts at around the 2:25 mark after thats its just driving around to the other side of the property
