No doupt about it: It has itīs price, but the kit has a A++ quality. Each wheel has a brushless motor and a three step planetary transmission with a ratio of 71:1. Therefore you need these 4 speed controllers...
With a 2s LiPo it runs fase enough, Maybe for tilling a field even too fast. Though it runs fast, it has a very high torque at each wheel. Veeeeery poweful!
Hereīs some information from the manufacturer: http://mfz-blocher.de/allradtrac.html

I chose the BRUDER Xerion 5000 body, because the chassis was made for these dimensio0ns. But it will also fit to a
http://www.tractordata.com/farm-trac...case-4994.html I think.
......the wheelbase does not fit exactly to this tractor. Regarding that it has no fenders I guess it will work...

Wow Frank! That's a really great kit. I've always looked at these models with great interest. The fact that they are all over seas purchases keeps me from buying, but they are cool. I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of this kit, and to see some videos of it. Can't wait to see how it pulls!

You may contact Andreas Blocher and ask if the tires are available...
But you may also find some with nearly teh same dimensions in the U.S.....at Dakotah toys in SD. The "Trelleborgs" have nearly the same diameter.
