    Few quick questions.

    Hey guys


    I'm buying either Trencher X's or Badlands for backyard bashing, dirt, and some onroad.


    A. ^ I'm getting 1/2 offset rims, not sure which ones yet. But will they drop right on? I purchased a used revo 2.5 and it has transformed into many different forms of a revo and its now an e-revo and has the little i think it's from the platinum revo 3.3 where they look like arrows on each end? its not a hexagon like the revo 2.5 wheels are and geodes. What adapter should i get for the wheels to work with my car?

    B. It's been a while, what kind of glue should i get? thin? medium?

    C. I have my p2 rockers and the stock pushrods on and i have it set to the highest it will go, how can i convert it to a higher stance? p3 rockeres and extended pushords?

    links are loved!

    Thanks

    A) I think we might need some more punctuation and a little more info to help.
    - If buying Traxxas 17mm splined wheels, you need 17mm splined hubs. Traxxas 17mm splined hubs will work with other brands 17mm hex fitting.

    B) Medium gives you a little more time to adjst the tyre.

    C) Move the pushrods to the inner holes on the A-arm, or fit Long Travel rockers, or lengthen the pushrods.
    If at first you don't succeed, redefine success.

    I love the look of the Rulux 1/2 offset's but I can't find any that are 1/2 offset just standard

    Half offset 17mm wheels. I think the most popular options are either Traxxas Geode's from the Summit, or Proline wheels.

    ride hight: inner hole, & set the preload on the shocks. I push the chassis to the floor. If the springs are over fully compressed back off preload, if there is space in the springs increase the preload. Will give you a little more ride height..
