Well. guess I need to buy new wheel hexs, I just striped out a stock one. I've heard that the stock 17mm hexs can get play in them over time, when I get my new ones (If I buy Traxxas ones) what is the best way to PREVENT slop from forming? I've seen you can the bass tube you can put over the threads, and the HPI hex's you can buy. I don't like the HPI ones, I'd just like to get some hexs that would work with modding the hex or rims. I've also seen the HPP German ones, but those cost too much for me. I just plan on buying the stock Traxxas 17mm hexs. (In green!) Funny, just yesterday, 50Togo said I should get the green wheels hexs.
Long story. I was trying to get the hex back on, and it wasn't fitting. So I started "tapping" on it, and it onlt went half way on. I tried to get it off, but it wouldn't budge. I had to PRY it off, and it ruined the bore on the inside, put a bunch of dents in it, and runined the threads in the screw hole. So, now I need to buy some new ones, and a new axle end.How did you strip it out??
Gotta love learning the hard way!!
