    Ok, i'll take the ball.

    I think it would be cool if people could post part no. and origin of the part to the pics too. And if they like, the intended purpose. They are sometimes hard to spot on the actual picture and i'm always interested in these details and infos.

    Just before the weekend, some small goodies:

    Wheel Wideners with barrel nuts from Junfac/SouthKorea, BRP #524 mini locking body clips eBay/US, some black 4mm tight expandable PET sleeving and white braided Hi-Temp fiberglass sleeving from eBay/China, $6.50 each for 25ft.


    Junfac Wheel Wideners, 11mm.


    Actually i'm more interested in the included barrel nuts, to mount RPM wide wheelbase crawler wheels better.


    Stumbled upon them on eBay, for $1.99 a pack i couldnt resist..

    I plan to use the sleeving for cable protection around the car.

    I could have guessed that someone would come up with that, hehe

    Well my thought was, if i order stuff from there, i should get the whole shebang once. Just in case i ever plan to test wheel wideners. Not to keen to atm, but from all widenerns i have seen these look like a decent design. I had the Exotek Wideners into consideration too, they should come with shorter barrels. But never managed to find a source with stock.

    I anticipated that i have to shorten the nuts to run without the extender, but has hoped they still work with them too afterwards. Not sure yet.

    Is that the EZRun 60A esc in your pic? Think i'm running the same atm. Nice shocks, what oil? And the motor?
    Lotsa questions.

    the barrel nuts are very easy to shorten if/when your ready. i bought a 4mm bolt and 4mm tap the bolt for clamping in a vise and then the tap to clean up the threads. i think the wheel widener would be hard on the bearings! no it's speed passion esc and pulso 6000kv 7.5 turn motor from got2gorc very powerful i have done 50mph on a 2 cell!

    EZRun, Hobbywing, *******, Speed Passion many names but same blueprint or even factory. Some get the blue stickers and packaging, some the blacks and the other the red ones. Quality of parts chosen to build and firmware may differ from "brand to "brand", but i doubt that.

    Thanks for the tips on the nuts.

    I run big bore shocks too, different brand though. With similar hard oil (1000cps) and found it a bit weak. Could use more dampeing. Thats why i asked. Guess thats a whole different topic..

    Probably rather the 18A or 35A Version of this line/design? AFAIK only the 60A hast the external cap board. The smaller version have the caps under fan, as you described.

    @jhsmith: Can you post a closeup of your extenders with all parts layed out?

    I would put the lockwasher between the normal washer and the screwhead. This is to get some tension on the screw to keep it from backing out under vibration. Normal hexnuts have the nylon insert for that. No nylon here, thus the lock washer.
    At least thats what i come up with.

    I agree with that. Seems like it would keep the screw from moving better than anything else.

    From outside 2 inside:

    => Screw / Lock Washer / Washer / Wheel with Tire / Wheel Widener / Knuckle

    Thats how i would put it all together on the axles.

    Oh, OK that IS short.

    I guess no chance to run this shortened barrel nuts with the Junfac wheel xtenders.

    Thank you for posting that pic 50togo!

    Darn, this operation turns out a bit more "funny" then expected. I will cut them and try to drill them all the way through and rethread that part. Like the Exotek's are designed.

    You don't have to drill the barrel nuts just run the tap plenty of oil and tap it to clean the metal out
