Is there really anything bad about driving with slightly bent Axles? Like really the only negative is it might botch up the bearing right? I bent my left front axle last weekend after a 1/8 buggy smashed into me while my 10TT was flipped upsidedown laying on the track. It broke the front A-Arm mounting plate and bent the axle just a tad. I bought a new part and ran the truggy for another 4 or so packs with the axle bent. It doesnt make the wheel move or vibrate.... you can just tell its bent if you hold the truggy and hit the gas... it spins and is clearly bent. Am i really going to damage anything major?

If it's bent it will probably wear the outdrive faster as it vibrates.

Those buggy tires made me lose steering. Since the wheels are wide it makes me make wider turns. I was also slipping too much. Traction wasn't as good.

After a couple of runs I got a little to crazy on the straight away and hit the wall at the end of the straight away. Broke the front axle. I realized those tires are just to big and add to much stress to the axles. Took them off and ran the regular stock wheels.

I am currently making my own inserts out of 1/8 truggy inserts. Left them over night to dry. This sunday I will test them out.

The TT axles bend back pretty easy. Take them out mark the high spot with a sharpie and you can get them pretty close to straight. So far we haven't had one break doing this.

I bought the AKA adapters for the Hyper TT considering all the buggy wheels I have.....but I dont think they're anything close to that size. Those almost look like truggy size.

That is for the nitro versions of the Hyper TT and the Mini ST.

It goes where the electric motor mounts on the electric version.

Do you have the part number for those adapters and how well do they fit? Is there any slop or play with them? THX!

I don't have the part number handy, but the fit is not ideal. I filled the gap and gave it a run and liked it, but I only have some garbage tires right now so I pulled them off for now (ok, fine, I didn't LT them and one fell off).

Ofna make a 17mm conversion and it fit perfect.
