    Haven't had any problems with my Traxxas 17mm hexes. I've had a set on my Summit for 2.5 years and a set on my Revo 3.3 for a few months. Both work fine, with only a little slop.

    i run the traxxas 17s with my street tires, and they're fine for me. i remove them and put them on all the time, haven't had a problem yet.

    Both my sets have a little slop. Just something I've learned to live with. There are some threads on here on how to modify them for no slop.

    It's true, the wheel hexs have a little slop. But, it's hard to tell it's there, and it's really easy ro fix. Here is a link to my version of fixing the slop. LINK Hope this helps!

    Yep. But didn't they fix them for the Slash also? LINK

    Darn! It looks like Traxxas finally realized their mistake and fixed MOST of tham... Now they just need to fix the ones for the E-Revo, Summit, E-Maxx, and T-maxx.

    I've been rocking the OFNA 17mm hubs for ages now and still love them. A very tiny amount of slop with that mod, which I doubt any of us could tell while driving these... But i'd try something new if I were in the market for 17mm adapters.
