Default truggy 17mm to 23mm

Hello everyone I have been wanting to put fourty size tires on my truggy. Problem yes, they only make the fourty's in 23mm and 14mm.[:@] So in turn we that have truggys can not run them. Do you have this problem to? If so write me my e-mail [email protected], I have the 23mm hub that fits your truggy. No matter if it is a OFNA, LOSI, or a HPI HELLFIRE. Just think of the new possibilties with that they are end less. This is not a/an add on it is a total hub it replaces the total hub for one fit. Unless you have already found the fix still please let me know.
Thanks Phil

Thats What I am talking about!!! I have almost the exact same setup, I will try to get some pics posted by Monday... I am in the process of getting a Carbon Fiber setup to put on it right now. But it looks great where Did you get your 23 ADAPTERS if you don't mind me asking? Other than that how do you like your hellfire I love mine, just love it...

go to ebay and search for either 23mm adapters or 14mm adapters. OFNA makes a really nice set of 14mm adapters.

Why would a guy go from a 17mm to a 14 when he is looking to move up to the 23mm for the 40 rims???? Just a though to chew on

the goal isn't necessarily 23mm, it is to use 40 series, and 40 series come in 23 AND 14mm sizes. He has a choice to go either way. I had a similar problem, several sets of tmaxx tires and 2 maxx's, and 1 truggy with 1 set of wheels/tires. I decided to go the 14mm route so i could buy 1 type of rim and use on both trucks with minimal waste of what I currently have. The choice is up to the individual, I was just giving all of the solutions possible.

Well we have a HEllfire an Ofna, But about two weeks ago we were looking for the adapters and could not find any.... So thenwe decided to get some made. Right after we start to get the made everybody starts making them.... But thanks for the site I will be sure to check them out.

how durable are those adaptors from ebay? i have a set, still waiting to test them out. i also realized that 2 of mine had slop on them, so the pin didnt go straight through the hole.
