Default Non Standard Wheels???

I have a friend who is considering the Hot Bodies 1/8 Lightning Stadium Sport RTR as his first RC, but after checking it out it looks like the wheels use a smaller axel/nut setup then is standard. the hex apears to be standard but not the axel/nut. maybe im out of my mind but any info from those in the know would be apreciated.

The hex nut is 14mm as used in many MTs. The axle/spindle is 5mm, so any nut for an M5 bolt should work. HPI and Hot Bodies both make locking nuts in that size. I believe the E-Savage nuts work too.

the most common is 17mm you can switch it over with minimal parts, check the lightning stadium form on here for the list.
