Default wider tire selection

i didnt realize this until tonight, but the 17mm hubs that are on the backdraft 8e and 3.5 will fit on the aftershocks and earthquakes.

this means, with the very simple install of these hubs, you can run almost any tire with a 17mm hub! and i believe they will widen the track just a bit as well.

oh, and the same goes for the caldera's!

Yep. Urchobby.com sells a conversion kit for the aftershock, earthquake, and caldera. I bought one for my earthquake and it works perfect.
