    Beadlocks rubbing...

    My new beadlocks rub the suspension arms at about 3/4 compression... how to fix? Do I modify the beadlocks, grind down the arms, what?

    I have the same rims. You have to narrow them. Here's a link to my thread on narrowing the same wheels, just black.

    I also have the same rims and took a inch out of the center of the rim to make them work.

    Tip ( may not work on 17mm rims)

    But on my 23 mm hex I placed a 23 mm hex nut on the hub, blue loctite it in place, put the wheel ON TOP of that hex nut and then secured the wheel with a second hex nut. It gave me approx 4mm of width. Just enough to avoid rubbing rims. Like I said it may not work on the star shaped traxxas hex nuts, but it may be a good fix for aftermarket hubs.

    Mine rubs but I just keep driving , it'll dig a small groove in the arm, not serious enough to cause damage or compromise structural integrity.

    I put progressive 2 rockers on mine and they don't rub the arms anymore but they still rub the toe links at full lock.
