He needs all 4 of the deep dish traxxas wheels. Looks like he got the shallow dish wheels.

they do, you need this to get it all together:

2- 08064 http://redcatracing.com/parts_searchresult.asp?q=08064

1- 08065 http://redcatracing.com/itemdetail_p...p?partno=08065

if you get this you can use the wheels and tires you have, it will offset the rims.

Here is the difference and if you need them I have 12 sets in stock.......just no grub screws
First are the adaptors / then the new longer one and then what you have now. I think its the same wheel but not sure

Do you know how a propeller balancer works? I heared that you can use one of them to do the wheels.



What do you think about this In my tsunami I have the os cvrx18, the single speed direct drive, 14 tooth clutch bell, smaller aluminum clutch shoes for a higher stall and the proline gladiator tires. Do you think it will do wheelies with that setup?

also. to try to balance tires, you can find a coat hanger, stick it thru the center hole, now the heaviest part of the tire should go to the bottom, try to put some weight on the top and see how it spins, its kinda like a prop balancer.
