Just got the Itsy Bitsy adaptors and HPI tryes today from Tower.

The mystery of Triangle shape cast on my Aluminum wheels solved

But as some brothers already pointed out, the Itsy Bitsy Hex Adaptor is too thick. So that the hex nut cannot tightly screw to the wheels.

I will need to trim the thinkness of the adaptors thinner with Drill (sand paper of course) later. A big job, will do it over the coming weekend.

The tyres look kinda strange on a buggy. hehehehe, but I am using these wheels for onroad driving purpose only. :D

looks wicked! but im not a big fan of alloy rims, i think too heavy! lol, maybe if you do alot of tire spinning, maybe i would put on alloy rims..but i doubt it! the rims are nice! but somehow the body looks different in that paint job? lol it looks like my old ofna mbx style kind of body..not infernoish..no offense it still looks GREAT i love the color, the rims. it blends in nicely!

Those look nice, wonder if I could get my T-Maxx rims to fit on the Half8 I have coming :)

LOL...no... the hex is too small to fit T-Maxx wheels


Here's what i did with mine:

haven't changed the body yet... just working on the internals for now and getting it to run the way I want it to

I had them on my micro rs4 for a few minutes (killed the stock motor with them) just have to use your imagination, a lathe/mill helps :)

Can't wait for my half8 to show up

I'd be surprised if the front and rear wheels didn't touch when you mounted them on your Micro....:D

Ha pretty dang close even with extended chassis. Think I'll stick with 1/8 buggy wheels or smaller on this thing.
