    Wheel Spacers?

    I have the BIG JOES on the typical wheel they come mounted on, but the offset is horrible. The car stock is at least 2" wider than it is now.

    Anyone have/found any wheel spacers for the Summit?

    Well, I was hoping Traxxas would have a set. When I google'd, "Traxxas Summit Wheel Spacers" I found NOTHING, but I'll look for other options again, thanks.

    **EDIT


    So I found some 6mm spacers, and some much larger ones. 6mm ones from hot racing and the others from integy. I'm going to keep looking, but 6mm each side I guess will make a BIT of a difference.

    6mm on each side will make the truck about 1/2" wider. I have the Integy 12mm spacers on my EMBE. Holds up nicely to 6s. As a whole, I'm always leary of Integy parts, but these seem to doing fine. I think they were $25 for the set. I bought 2 so I have spares in case I lost a part or damage.

    Hey, awesome thank you very much! I saw those when I was searching, but didn't think by the picture it was what I was looking for. I'll get my LHS to bring them in for me so I don't have to pay shipping! =)

    *cheers

    Why not XO-1 hexes? Or, it's still too short?

    The Integy 17mm extended hubs (6, 12 and 18mm) are out of stock everywhere I looked. You may find a few floating on ebay.

    The 12mm extensions have held up well on my ERBE running 5s. But Integy lives up to their reputation and I've already partially stripped 2 hubs while tightening the nuts. The problem is that the threads in the nut have a poor design and you can easily cross-thread them. Surprisingly they do eliminate the slop.
