The PL 22 wheel is not wider. It's the same width as the TLR 22 wheel. The white wheel shown in the pic is the HB wheel.

ah, ok /facepalm, lol. Anyway, looking forward to the release. The goofy front tower is growing on me. If the diff prove to not be weak or leak like crazy, I am in. I hate, hate, hate leaky diffs. Such a mess to clean up. I sold my scte2.0 because they leaked, lol.

ok, so when using the HB wheels vs the tlr22 wheels, aside from the 1mm width difference, how does the different offsets compare? So with the 22 hex and wheel, would you be narrower overall, same etc.

"Wheel offset" is often confused by many so I'm gonna avoid that term for now. For this purpose let's use the distance between the wheel's outside face to the hex mounting surface. Measured by this dimension the D413 wheel and the 22 wheel are the same. So whether you use the stock D413 wheel or the TLR 22 wheel or the PL 22 wheel or the JC 22 wheel or the AKA 22 wheel, the overall width will be the same. The kit will include the smaller hex needed to run TLR, PL, JC, & AKA wheels.

Ok, so the total width will be the same, but the d413 front wheels are just a tad wider for the tire. very cool, to come with hexes for the HB wheel and a more popular wheel like the 22. Very nice indeed.

It was discussed a few pages back that the car would be delayed until late this year/early 2014 due to some production delays overseas.

I just hope it comes out by mid January. The losi will be out around that time also. But yeah I'm also just about to get the yokomo. Wish I could at least preorder D413 to keep me from getting something else. Just a matter of time when yokomo will be back in stock.

This is the exact reason why they don't want to throw dates around. Causes so much controversy and then bad things are said.

I will still be getting this car. Worth the wait and the new TLR buggy doesn't look too impressive to me.
