    Ive had them on a rustler. they work OK. They do throw off steering a bit. The wheel gets moved over an inch from the steering arm pivot point. Its not a huge deal, and they are useful if you want your rustler to look bigger or to be able to run larger tires. They will put more stress on the wheel hubs tho....so it is a good idea to upgrade those to RPM at the same time.

    I'm not a fan of widing the track using widners like those. It effects the steering and the suspension geometry. Also puts additional strain on the hubs and carriers.

    I persoanlly wouldn't do it.

    Would that be why I keep rounding out wheels on my tornado? I have wider axles and hexes on it to make the wheels stick out more.

    I agree and with products like the proline pro track arms why bother with spacers
