Look at the spacer. There is a right and left plus the amount it adjusts. Make it faces up and the arrow points forward.

I understand the need to be different, but why did Durango go with 14mm hexes when the rest of the industry is now using 12mm? Hopefully someone will come out with some kind of adaptor, LHS doesn't usually stock Durango parts so getting Losi or AE hex rims will be alot easier than myself stocking up on Durango rims. Wait, maybe that's why they did it, so I would have to stock up on rims

Funny you say that. I thought it was pretty arrogant of Durango to go with the 14mm hex wheels when there are so many 12mm wheels on the market. I plan on grinding down my hexes so I can use my box full of old B4 and B44 wheels and tires..

+1 very frustrating.. I have gotten my 22 rears to fit without too much hassle

I could understand if there had been problems with hexes stripping nut seriously.

Not even hexes for the front!!

And the B4 or SV fronts don't even fit

I thought we could pull the hex and add the spacer for standard pinned wheels?

The reason for the 14mm hex was due to lipo/brushelss technology really putting strain on the drive system, or so Durango says.

If you want to use your standard Durango wheels (or AE) you just need the distance spacer and cone.

I was going to.. but then when I was getting ready to mount my body (which is just a solid painted practice body, no time for a real job), I had an issue, and that is in order to get the rear body post off, I was going to have to like... disassemble half of the rear end of the car. I don't know why I put it on there in the first place, but taking it back off after the car is done is a freakin PITA.. I only had a few hours last night total to get the car up and running with all the final details, including painting.... so I just said screw it, drilled the holes, and went for the body clips.... but you CANT put a body pin through the front post hole for crying-out-loud!!!

First run is today... im excited.
