    Loose Hexs/Axle stubs

    Hey guys when the wheels are mounted on to the axle carriers they tend to wobble around a lot and seems to be the axle stub and driveshaft moving back and forward. Any have this Isis before? And what can I do to fix it? Thinking about buying the Tekno R/C axle carriers and a set of traxxas steel outer drive shafts when I get the money.

    Maxxstang,

    Are you running 14mm hex or 17mm hex adapters?

    I tightened mine up pretty good by doing a mod to the Traxxas 17mm hex and HPI's cap nut. But of course this would require the use of 17mm wheels.

    Here's a link to the thread I used to do it.

    Is there a clamping style hex available for the emaxx? I'm having the same issue with my short course truck. Lol.

    I think there may be, but its rather expensive, popoxx had some fancy ones on his build thread. I personally am very happy with my Maximizer 17mm hexes, proline desparado rims, and ST Racing axle carriers. very little slop. one cheap option for the stock is putting a washer between the outside bearing and the hex pin (behind the stock hex and pin). This helps some. I also noticed that alot of slop came from the rod ends on my toe links. Upgraded to RPM ends for $8, works great so far.

    To compleatly eliminate that, ur gonna need wheels, hexes, carriers, bearings, and maybe rod ends or new shafts tho.

    A 17mm Hex greatly enhance firmness, maybe you should check the bearings and adjusting Pivot Balls / Caps.
