    17mm adapter with keyed mip's

    I am wanting to put the xo-1 wheels and tires on my slash. I just bought the 17mm adapters traxxas part number 6856x. But I forgot to ask the hobby ship if these adapters will work with my mip cvd's. do you guys know if it will work?

    They will not work with the new keyed MIP's. You need to either buy the MIP 17mm upgrade kit or the FLM 12mm to 17mm adapters. The MIP kit uses set screws to bind against the keyed axles.

    Thanks for the help. I ended up having to use one of my other slashes mip with the pins cause I already bought the traxxas adapter kit.
