A safe place to start, with some endbell timing, would be 31.

The kyosho wheel hex is really bad bends too easily(that thin part which shields the clamp socket cap). Hope the MIP is better. Anyways I do not think the kyosho is the way to go since its a keyed axle, i.e., axles got a flat spot to hold the grub screw.

The Kyo alloy hexes always did that. I like the STRC ones, they're just not as pretty, and I never had that problem with them.

That said, I've had Kyosho hexes fall apart (with the will mounted), and never noticed until I took the wheel off.

did I miss something? SAMCRO is trying to use b4 rims and they are not fitting. Instead of trying to modify it would be easier just to start over and buy some Kyosho rims as t8rtot mentioned. I have a CRAP load of 22 rims with brand new mounted tires... they didn't fit... so I had a yard sale!

(PS~ I have some 22 wheel/tire new mounts for sale )

The kyosho wheels look dull and scratched up pretty fast. Just use a serrated nut for rears and regular for fronts and AT LEAST jconcepts mono fit perfect (I have several sets of those). My lhs does sell kyosho but still prefer the monos. The TLR fronts will never work though/rears do.

^^22 rears work only with a serrated nut but that's even cutting it close with only a few threads showing^^

Kyosho yellow is SWEET! (don't hit anything and they wont scratch up so fast... lol)
