I'm not sure the motor can handle the bigger tires.keep in mind,bigger tires will increase loads on the motor.You can try to stand the shocks up and use spacers or increase ride height if you have threaded shocks.

Mugen Seiki Rules

Too much ride height is just going to make your car bouncy and tip over. 4" on that car is crazy. Get a monster truck for extreme clearance. Moreover your ESC will be too stressed and may blow due to too much load of the tyres.

You can mount the shocks on the lower most hole on the shock tower and the inner most hole on the A-arm. Larger tyres have been used and then replaced with standard 1:10 tires. Better bet will be to get a 1:8 MT.

i wanted to do the same with my sparrow, and i i did that, but after some running i got the results.
Tires worn down almost 5 times faster than usual, car handled strange, tuning was a problem with very horrible handling, shock leaked more due to excessive pressure, dog bones also got bent,since the design of the car is not meant for such height.

I'll be back.
