    Be sure when you purchase your 17mm adapters their traxxas or similar designee, the XO-1 rims require them.

    The easiest and cleanest way to remove the tabs on a Traxxas 17mm wheel is with a chisel. Place the beveled edge towards the hub with the flat edge of the chisel against the flat spot on the wheel hex surface. Start the chisel at a slight angel then take it straight down till the tab is cut free. No mess, no fuss. If you don't have a chisel, they are CHEAP at Harbor Freight.

    GRP wheels are great. Sweeps are good too. Both can be found on flea Bay. Sweeps cost more and aren't with it for bashing and speed runs, not sure about racing tho..
