    Exclamation Just bought ERBE and Tires are Wobbling. Help needed

    Hey everyone, I just bought an Erevo and out of the box, all four tires are wobbling like crazy to the point where the truck is shaking like an earthquake. I tightened the nuts on the wheels but that did not solve the problem. I think this is because it has been sitting in the box for a long time. I'm really excited to run this thing but I can't because I'm afraid that the axles will break. What should I do?

    the tires will often get flat spotted from sitting in the box. after a few runs this should work itself out...

    if youre talking about the wobble on the blue aluminum hex hub on the steel driveshaft end, than balancing the tires wont help much. thats the Hex Slop that needs to be addressed.

    They don't come out of the box with hex slop... that normally kicks in after the flat spots have been worked out.

    Hey quick question if a tire is in need of balancing would you be able to notice that even when you are going really slow? Or is that wheel wobble something you would only notice at speed

    I'd suggest some nylon washers. I picked up a set from Lowes for .56 cents, and it seems to have taken care of my hex slop. I haven't ran it much since I put them on, so we'll see how they hold up. Just a suggestion.
