    The merv comes with 12mm hex, best check that these are.

    Yep, HPI Scorch 2.2 will fit.
    They come with an adapter assortment and washers. The smallest inner adapter will fit the diameter of 1/16 Traxxas axles

    is this similar to the axial wheels where you can also use the bushings from the rocker arms?

    I'm not sure how the bushing trick on Axials actually works?

    HPI uses this design on all their 2.2 wheels:




    The pic shows HPI Dish 2.2, but Scorch wheels are the same.

    yep, same concept. basically you just use the bushings that come in the rocker arms (part 5123 i believe) and insert it into the wheel just like you would the adapter you are showing. i happened to save mine after i did the bearing swap in the rockers and it worked perfect.
