I need to find a good set of on road wheels and tires for my truck. Nobody here runs off road anymore. I'll be racing againsted fully hopped up Vendetta's and I'll be running a Mamba so speed isnt' an issue. I just need to lower my truck somehow and get on road tires. I can run foams if I want to. I jsut need to find hexs to fit. Will normal touring cars fit if I put a washer behind the locking nut to hold the wheel on itself?

You need to pick up some hex adapters. As for lowering use the allenhead screws and move the the top of the dampeners inward.

Who makes a good hex adapter? Would any 1/10 work fine?

If you can find them, Trinity does. That's what I use.

Just a yes or no if these are the correct ones to make my conversion complete.

oh boy ... good luck.. i would be concerned with speed.. the final drive for the detta is more geared for speed.. and with the right motor it can have all the power and speed it needs..

any way good luck,, and please take some videos.. and it is too bad no one runs offroad.. im trying to make it popular again by continuingly run my detta on the 10th scale offroad track

bring back the offroads..
