Yes, the DE 17mm wheels are the ones I use as well. The only other complaint I have about the M2C is the once I started using them, I broke 4 axles. They were the older OG style axles from the original SCT410, not the newer 5mm ones. So I don't think that new new axles will break.
The special nuts are available separately from M2C.
One word of warning, the Tekno 17mm conversion makes the SCT way too wide. SCT are narrower than buggies. Won't be a problem just bashing around but will most likely interfere with the body.

have you used them? i saw it made it a little wider, but didnt think it would be noticable.

it's still a legal width to race as sct too right? just clips the body?

No, the Tekno 17mm conversion will make your SCT far too wide to be legal.
Tekno SCT410 Thread
Check out the SCT410 thread. There was a lot of discussion there about this. The 48SL axle kit places the hex much farther away from the hubs. The design of the SCT places the hubs at maximum width when the hex is almost flush with the hub. That is why the M2C conversion has no width to it, basically replaces the 12mm hex. Look carefully at the Tekno hex- it is placed far out on the end of the axle.
Hope that makes some sense.

hmm... i was really interested in the tekno version of the 17mm.... im assuming it would be fine for club races, just nothing major. Is it very noticable by looking at it? or does it offer much handling differences being wider?

measure how wide your EB48 is then compare it to your SCT. That will be the difference. The Tekno 17mm EB48SL axle/hex kit was made to make the SCT design (arm length, hubs etc) as wide as the EB48-1/8 scale buggy width

My SCT was surprisingly good today, just wish it was as efficient as my EB.. wish my track would let us use 3s! Love the truck, but anything under 7200mah on 2s seems to die soooo fast.

Also I ordered those 17mm Tekno adapters, so I guess if I ever convert to SL ill use them, (local guy has been doing amazing with his SL). Hoping its not too awkward looking running the SCT wheels on the 17mm for practice.

Also anyone had issues with the front bumper? The screw from the front keeps stripping/falling out, so it flaps around a little... not a big deal, just annoying that I can't carry or grab it from the front without it flopping off...

I run 8000 Mah - why not? helps balance the truck side to side.

17mm adapters! blasphemy!

everyone has issues with the front bumper, bent attachment bolts, doesn't fit, etc.. best advice? let it wear down to almost nothing at the skid plate and it will give you faster lap times - does not dig in when this notoriously nose heavy truck noses over landing a jump.

i need to get some better 2s. I have some 6000's, 5000's, and 7200's... my 4s 6500's last forever... just not used to my 2's dying so fast! I love my SMC 4's, might try the SMC 2's and see how I like them. What 8000 are you using btw?

Yeah I don't really need the whole bumper out there haha, just nice to have for keeping the body in one piece, that's about it. don't need the extra weight!

These trucks like extra weight.. I have 1/2 oz of ballast glued to the rear port side of my 410.3 and it won last weeks indoor clay race.

I use pro-match 2s 8000 100C batteries. super cheap, pick your end type. I've tried to sizzle this and have trouble getting them to puff. for the price you can't beat it and they are lighter weight than most 7200's.

Sounds like these> Hobbystar 8000 mah battery

Also just to note, the weight adding is fine and all, but have you considered the battery back mod or mounting the ESC behind the battery? This does what your doing now without having to add the weight to the chassis. Seems like that would give you even more of an edge with less over all weight.

What does that esc mod where you move it to the rear look like? Do you have to cut out the rear servo mounts? Do you just mount it to the chassis? How big of an impact does the mod have on the truck -seems like left side will become heavy?

Thanks.

Anybody use the Jconcepts Rulux wheels on the .3? They seem to be a tad bit bigger in diameter and width then say AKA Cyclone. Would that be an issue racing/rubbing the body? Thx

I wouldn't run them. They were prone to cracking. I don't think they even make them in the right offset for our trucks anymore.
