I'm only three weeks into car RC'ing. I'm glad I started withe the Traxxas Slash 4x4 Ultimate... I've really had no regrets in that choice.
I think I screwed up in a recent "glue-on" rim choice.
I got these at the advice of a local pro...
Proline-Rims: "ProTrac Suspension Kit Renegade 2.2"/3.0" Black Wheels 2723-00"
I got the package off the shelf in a RC pro shop.
The package said the rims were for Slash front or rear... misleading http://prolineracing.com/wheels/prot...-piece-wheels/
The mounting hub offset on these causes the wheels to be more narrow than Traxxas 4x4 stock wheels.
And, even worse, they are also more narrow than either front or rear of a 2x4 Slash.
It appears they are for use with "extended proline / protrac" suspension.
I failed to double check fit first, and I glued my shiny new AKA tires on them....all 4...
Maybe I'll be able to sell them and get most of my money back?
After comparing things, I've seen that Traxxas Slash 2x4 front wheels are set for the widest stance.
They are wider than 2x4 rear, and 4x4 standard..
Can I use 2x4 front wheels for all 4 wheels of my 4x4?
