Duratrax wheels help

Post by Ddsmech1 » Mon Apr 04, 2016 8:26 pm

So I purchased the duratrax six pack mt wheel for my flux hp. The rear fit fine but the fronts rub on the shock when they turn all the way. How can I fix this? Wheel extenders or get the 1/2 offset wheels?
Thank you for the help

How much are they hitting? Is it just a bit of a rub, or a major interference?
If it's a major interference, either axle extenders or the 1/2" off set wheels should do the trick.
If it's just a little rub, maybe 1 washer between the hex and the wheel would do the trick. I have done it in the past with no issues.  don't go more than 1 washer from my ecperiance to keep enough contact between the hex and the wheel, or you could strip the wheel hex.
Just remember if you have to go with the extenders or the offset wheels to do both front and rear, or the truck may handle weird.
Or the really cheap way is to turn down the endpoints on the radio so the wheels don't move as much, if your radio is capable of it.
