4.5-5.0 bs works with that on RCX kits. The uca's and tie rods would be a must, plus cvs if you use 4wd. Its not thats its 6 lbs heaviers, its the fact its over a 100lbs. Your truck will be screaming for help!! Then you have tire diameter, what gears do you have?

I wouldnt do that setup without upgrading. Hell I wouldnt do 37s, even my setup without upgrading and their 84lbs. Just had to wait bc of the rearend, but had all parts on hand.

Ask some of the bigger guys, they'll tell you. If they aren't downgrading supsension and tires their upgrading all the above My advice, don't do it till you can do it right.

Personally I won't go over 90lbs a tire either
