    Just FYI, Traxxas makes the 17mm Adapters as well. The part # is 6856x they started shipping this week.

    This is something I've done:



    Those are 1/8th truggy wheels, and it doesn't seem to hamper performance, even with the added mass. BTW, if you go this route, also invest $20 in a wheel balancing pole. At this size, wheel balancing will give you much better performance.

    i think buggy wheels are perfect for stampede or even slash 4x4 wheels should fit and run good too, but truggy wheels donīt seem so good. it give a oversize look and i think for a track they should not perform well...

    thankīs for picture anyway!!

    I goofed around with my pede with the aka's and truggy wheels / tires. I actually think it looks pretty cool, and for a week I never had a problem with axles. I since went back to the Masher 2.2 on rpm offsets.

    I have buggy tires for indoor clay racing with the suspension slammed down. real fun little "truggy".

    it is a real good truck and because is low weight it can easly work with a normal 1/10 size motor.
    i donīt have mine finish but i will use buggy wheels and vxl esc with a robitronic 10.5 4500kv sensored motor on 2s..
    i think it should be a rocket and because it will work with sensor it will be linear in speed and acelaration.

    Here's with the stock body:



    I am painting a Ford Raptor body now, which is wider....probably short course width. I'll have to really enlarge the wheel cutouts to use these wheels. But once the body is done, I'll post a pic with stock tires, buggy tires, and then truggy tires....probably enlarging the wheel wells with each pic.

    I didn't take the hub adapters off to go back to stock tires....but I figure you all know how it looks with stock shocks.

    Here is a pic with buggy tires and a wide format Ford Raptor body:



    And the same setup with truggy tires:



    I like the oversized wheels/tires, and the electronics handle it no sweat.

    with those buggy tires and a 1/10 stadium truck body would be a killer looking truck!
