You need to convert over to the 3/16th axle, which requires different axle carriers.

You need [link=http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXGEJ8&P=7]these[/link], [link=http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/cPath/1_25_1450_42/products_id/1705/n/Team-Associated-Rear-Hub-Carriers-GT-15]these[/link], [link=http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXPA18&P=ML]these[/link], and lastly [link=http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LX2563&P=7]these. [/link]

Hope this helps. I did the conversion a while back and didn't need a shim kit.

You won't have to change thehub carrier. The od on the bearings is the same size. Or you could just buy a wheel to fit your 1/4 axlel. If it was me doing it, I'd switch to the 3/16 axle. Lot better selection of wheels to choose from. The 1/4 stuff is way obselete.

No, the old rc10t axle is a bit different, and longer on the inside. If you were to use the stock axle carrier, the 3/16 axle would not reach the dogbone. The stock axle carrier is also wider, and doesn't allow you to even insert the split pin. The rc10gt carrier is a requirement when using the 3/16 axle. I went through all this when I converted one of mine over.

Didn't know that. Someone must have switched them on my trucks before I got them. mine just went right in when I switched over. Both my T's were bought used.
