Those or something like those would be what you'd need. If you go with the avid axles, you can use the stock nuts

Proline rears need either of the above to work,
the Proline fronts need to either be used with the RB5 front Hex/axles or have a little bit of material remover around the wheel hex to clear the RB6 axle hexes, as the RB6 front hex is shallow and the Proline wheel is deeper. Doesn't take too long to get the clearance needed of you don't want to go the RB5 front hex/axle route.

I use these for all of my wheels, KYO1-N4045F. Low profile nut that is serrated on the backside to grip the wheel.

Actually, the stock RB6 axle can be adjusted using the axle spacers. I just moved the thicker inside spacer to the outside and the thinner one to the inside. This does increase the track width a tad.

+1 on serrated nuts. Locknuts will loosen over time. I have never ever had a serrated nut come loose. Ever.

These work great on every 4mm axle car I got ( sct410, xb4, rb6, touring car, vta car). Got like 3 bags of them and I am set for life. Use an impact driver on the stock kyosho axles. If you got aluminums or titaniums would avoid impacts but for the stock steel works great! No need for that long axle.

I put it in. Definately lighter. Haven't gotten a chance to race it yet since the indoors not open yet and outdoors shut down cos of rain. Shaves around 10 grams I believe from stock drivetrain. So I spend my time lightening my rigs haha.

My stock RM rtr car is around 1477grams with shorty, 14GA wire, HW Jusstock, Ti screws, MIP Pucks, slipper eliminator, aluminum rack, aluminum front holder, aluminum bulkheads , and a trinity motor which shaves a few more grams off!

Did some testing last night at my local hobby shop last night. I was running the narrow plastic suspension plate and it was money on my last layout. I put the wide suspension plastic plate on and my rear end was kinda swinging like mike tyson. My car was faster though. I am buying the aluminum rear plates. What bushing are you fellas using in the aluminum plates?

Do you mean aluminum rear suspension hangers? If so which ones are you getting? The newer ones with the inserts that can be changed or the older ones? If it is the older ones you will want the white delrin bushings, check the first post for part numbers. If it is the newer ones then the steel ones that came with the kit will work.

yeah I was talking about the rear rear suspension hangers. The new ones with the inserts. I will be getting both wide and narrow.
