Default Jconcepts Rulux wheels

Greetings 'rango boys!

I'm expecting my 210 any day now, but I have one concern after reading the manual in regards to the front wheels. I currently have a c#¤pload of tires race-ready glued to the Jconcepts Rulux wheels for my B4.1. Are there any aftermarket parts that makes it possible to use these wheels on the 210? I know that the rear is easy enough with the old 410 mod, but the front puzzles me.

Please advice!

-S-

I only know these parts from a german shop, but they're available, at least.

The new 410 V3 has 14mm hexes front and rear. The old one had the same setup stock as the B44 with the 12mm hex in the front and cone/pin on the back. Hence, my huge stock of AE style wheels would bolt directly on the "old" 410's.

The mod is simply buy the old bits and put them on the V3 and on the rear of the 210.

Has anyone noticed the front end of the 210 is a little light? Is anyone adding additional weight to the front?

um... Y E S!

I have 3/4 oz in the front of the front bulkhead (the front bumper is holding it in there) and an addition 1/4 oz on the chassis under the steering components. Made things allot better. I also run my fullsize battery up against the servo. If you can't tell, I like steering...

This past weekends race, the front end was bouncing up and down the straight and was a little nose high in the air. Are you putting the weight in the front a-arm pocket?

Was that due to traction (traction wheelies)? Not sure what you mean about the pocket...

I was adding weight to get more steering, not to keep the front end on the ground down the straight.

It could be the 4 gear rear motor setup. From what I read it does make the car pop a wheelie happy.

So, if I get these pins and these hexes (and maybe some shims?), can I fit my 12mm rear wheels from my Losi 22 on the 210?

That could be it. I might move the battery forward to the mid-motor battery location and see what happens.

I think those hexes are 14mm and you are wanting to do 12mm for 22 wheels.

I posted a while back how I got my 22 wheels to work, but the offsets are pretty different. Once I found some hexes of the right width (SC10 hex adapters for the front) I had maybe three threads showing on the axle with the wheel on. This seemed to work out just fine, but I did break an axle pin since it was not fully support with that hex. Had I back that pin with a spacer that was the same height as the pin, or the hex surrounded the pin completely it would have worked better. It was all the lhs had that seemed like it would work. Now I know I need to look harder and what to look harder for.

I did buy the HPI battery hold down screws and they are GREAT. (HPI Part number HPI86969)

Here's some good info. I just found about it.

RC Tuning – Axle, Trailing
http://www.competitionx.com/rc-racin...axle-trailing/
What is a Trailing Axle?
Most vehicles come standard with Trailing Axles. This puts the Axle BEHIND the kingpin, making the car easier to drive.

Tuning with a Trailing Axle
Trailing Axles are standard on most vehicles. They provide the best overall steering feeling. Trailing Axles are much less aggressive than Inline Axles, and that is the reason they should be used on high-grip or ‘blue groove’ tracks.

In addition, some vehicles use spacers to move the steering block/caster block assembly forward or rearward. With the Trailing Axles, the steering block/caster block should be forward.

--------
RC Tuning – Axle, Inline
http://www.competitionx.com/rc-racin...g-axle-inline/

What is an Inline Axle?
Inline Axles are just what the term implies…the Axle is Inline with the Kingpin.

This is usually an optional steering setup and requires the use of a different Axles (in most cases) and different steering blocks.

Tuning with an Inline Axle
Inline Axles are optional on most offroad vehicles. When used, they provide a much more aggressive steering feeling into and out of corners.

As with the Trailing Axles, some vehicles use spacers to move the steering block/caster block assembly forward or rearward. While using Inline Axles, you will need to space the steering block/caster block assembly rearward.
