Ok, i'll take the ball.
I think it would be cool if people could post part no. and origin of the part to the pics too. And if they like, the intended purpose. They are sometimes hard to spot on the actual picture and i'm always interested in these details and infos.
Just before the weekend, some small goodies:
Wheel Wideners with barrel nuts from Junfac/SouthKorea, BRP #524 mini locking body clips eBay/US, some black 4mm tight expandable PET sleeving and white braided Hi-Temp fiberglass sleeving from eBay/China, $6.50 each for 25ft.
Junfac Wheel Wideners, 11mm.
Actually i'm more interested in the included barrel nuts, to mount RPM wide wheelbase crawler wheels better.
Stumbled upon them on eBay, for $1.99 a pack i couldnt resist..
I plan to use the sleeving for cable protection around the car.
you can get the barrel nuts separately i bought 8 of them had to shorten them a bit to make them work
i tried a 25m x 25m fan on the motor worked good .so this weekend i am testing this muchmore racing ultra high speed 30x30mm fan
Well my thought was, if i order stuff from there, i should get the whole shebang once. Just in case i ever plan to test wheel wideners. Not to keen to atm, but from all widenerns i have seen these look like a decent design. I had the Exotek Wideners into consideration too, they should come with shorter barrels. But never managed to find a source with stock.
I anticipated that i have to shorten the nuts to run without the extender, but has hoped they still work with them too afterwards. Not sure yet.
Is that the EZRun 60A esc in your pic? Think i'm running the same atm. Nice shocks, what oil? And the motor?

the barrel nuts are very easy to shorten if/when your ready. i bought a 4mm bolt and 4mm tap the bolt for clamping in a vise and then the tap to clean up the threads. i think the wheel widener would be hard on the bearings! no it's speed passion esc and pulso 6000kv 7.5 turn motor from got2gorc very powerful i have done 50mph on a 2 cell!
on the shocks exotek with 80 wt oil they work great!
EZRun, Hobbywing, *******, Speed Passion many names but same blueprint or even factory. Some get the blue stickers and packaging, some the blacks and the other the red ones. Quality of parts chosen to build and firmware may differ from "brand to "brand", but i doubt that.
Thanks for the tips on the nuts.
I run big bore shocks too, different brand though. With similar hard oil (1000cps) and found it a bit weak. Could use more dampeing. Thats why i asked. Guess thats a whole different topic..

good idea on the part number didnt think of that.. i got wheele wideners from the toyz, it come with a washer and lock wash for each, but i cant see where they go.. they are simillar to yours in the pic, but a little wider and have a screw to hold the wheels on
i have a 60a laying around has a small capacitor under the fan mine has two external caps would actually like to know what it is
here is the pic of the extender screws and washers, some one try to help me.
I would put the lockwasher between the normal washer and the screwhead. This is to get some tension on the screw to keep it from backing out under vibration. Normal hexnuts have the nylon insert for that. No nylon here, thus the lock washer.
At least thats what i come up with.
so.. what should i do?? ha, im as puzzled as you, i was thinking using the regular washer, and not worring about the lock wahser
they will loosen up without the lock washer i run lock washer, flat washer and hpi ss monster's big center washer
so should i put the lock washer between the rim and the washere then the screw in line like in the picture or put the lock behind the rim, or what
From outside 2 inside:
=> Screw / Lock Washer / Washer / Wheel with Tire / Wheel Widener / Knuckle
Thats how i would put it all together on the axles.
Oh, OK that IS short.
I guess no chance to run this shortened barrel nuts with the Junfac wheel xtenders.
Thank you for posting that pic 50togo!
yep i just remembered i had to extend the threads down because they stopped just before where the lock washer is .i had to grind away the taper on the tap flat
died my once blue rpms going for an all black with some crome to it
You don't have to drill the barrel nuts just run the tap plenty of oil and tap it to clean the metal out
Looking sharp! Nice and clean
thanks man.. i was goin with a theme more on the black and blue side with a bit of crome here and there.. but i think it will look real shard if i go with a whole black out thing and touch of crome here and there
I ordered 4 new HR alloy shock bodies for $11 shipped. They'll stop leaky shocks.
And they will look nice too. Don't forget the shock oil!
Today I ordered 4rpm knuckles, GPm wheel widener kit, white wing, and aluminum body posts.
Nice "finds" with the wheel wideners & fiberglass sleeving. And wow what an awesome price!
lets see some pics
Went to the dark side(strong side) ordered a gpm front and rear aluminum bulkhead and transmission case! All 3 for 109.00!
what do you mean by the dark side
I was trying to stay away from too much weight!
But those hard jumps are taking their toll
i like alum pats 50togo, and with the power you car has i wouldnt worry about a thing..
here is what i got today:
ring gear diff #7079
shock oil #1666
front bulkhead #7030x
new set of stock shocks and spring
all new screws and tools
and another slipper
I ordered 4 titus bead locks and 4 dirt hawgs and a heat sink and more packs!
Beadlocks will look nice! And dirt hawgs are great. Those beadlocks are a lil on the heavy side so gear down a bit more
