good, i am tired of the anocanda or the victory tires from traxxas, the victory tires wore dowm on my jato 2.5r before i was finished with the break in, the anocanda's on the 3.3 seem to last longer

So what size are our stock wheels? Are they 2.8?

I'd like to maintain the wheel/rim size and as I think it looks good, will these wheels on this page work as replacements? http://imexrc.com/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=4

Also, does anyone have a link to wheel hub adapaters? You know from our 12mm to say a 14mm?

any jato rear will work. the jato tires mount differently than the regular tires, they slip into a groove from the side not from the top

ehroof, when you say they mount differently ... you mean the tires to the wheels, right?

I've never had them seperated to see how they mount up.

Will this pose a problem in re-using the stock tires?

Before I go too far with wanting them, does anyone have a link or know where I can get a 12mm to 14mm hub adapter?

the tire mounts to the wheel differently with the jato. you couldnt use jato tires with the stock volcano rims. I dont think they make 12/14mm adapters. i only know of 14/17 and 17/23

Okay, I guess that answers that ;-) so I can't get Jato rims for my truck

Does anyone have the stock Volcano SV rims available or does anyone on here have a set they would sell?

Jato rear rims are 12mm hex, you would need 4 rear rims and 4 tires

Glad to see a volcano thread only. I want to buy some spare glow plugs for my vertex .18 engine. The plug that came out of it appears to read y3. The guy at hobbytown sold me a Mccoy mc59. When I matched it up to the one that came in the engine, it has much longer threads. I'm thinking it will strike the top of the piston if I use it. One thread said to use OS A3. A little help will be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance. Sure will be glad when weather clears so I can run my truck!

I have that header/manifold (will sell) if you are interested in it? I also have the RPM tuned muffler pipe to go with it as well.

I'm going to be putting a the stock exhaust back on [8D]

Has anybody else put the aluminum shock towers on their Volcano?? I'd like to know because after I put mine on, the body mounts and the holes in the body don't line up. I noticed it a while back, but wasn't concerned about it because I was (and still am) trying to tune the OS engine, but now that it's winter (friggin burr, 7 degrees for the high temp and -2 for the low[sm=cry_smile.gif]) and I can't run it, I want to put the body on but can't. What I want to know is did I do something wrong, or is it just something that happens when you put the aluminum parts on?? Thanks guys, any input is appreciated.


Clermontmotorsports, for what it's worth I don't care for the vehicle specific threads. I think that some new topics would get more attention if they were submitted as a new topic and not in a specific area. It's my observation that people seem to gravitate towards new topics rather than reading through an old one. Oh well, your a mod, so you'll do what you want, no hard feelings this is just my opinion.[8D]

that site must have made a mistake, the jato rims are 12mm, same as the rustler. the diameter is bigger 2.8 not 2.2
