42's on an Ftoy????

Is anyone out there running 42's on their Ftoy? I realize that its not legal for comps but was wondering if anyone was running them on solely recreational Ftoys. I was thinking since ditching the body lightens it up quite a bit; if built toy axles would hang in the rocks or if is a disaster waiting to happen. I know a lot of guys run 39.5 iroks but haven't seen any pics of 42's on one. Getting ready to build mine and was trying to plan it out. Maybe I will just run 39.5s.....

42's are legal.. You can run any tire you like..

I think you'd be breaking toy R&P's and turning would get into the leafs.

I run 39.5's on mine.

The bigger problem is getting them to fit without stretching the wheelbase way out or jacking the thing way up in the air.

I ran 42's with few problems. You need to keep the rear tire pressure higher than normal to decrease traction in rear or you will twist axels. Other than that they ran two seasons at the Hammers with no R&P failure.

Thats great to hear. I was just reading your thread on here. Freaking nice Ftoy to say the least ! Did you have to run spacers front and rear so that the tires wouldn't hit the leaf springs? Thanks for all the info guys.

I'd advocate a Tacoma-width rear housing and a wider front housing!!

Do you still have the toyota axles under that? If so, what spacers are you running to be able to turn those meats?
