Default RJspeed Legends (Bolink) spec tire arbor or adapter

I Just purchased a Ofna (hand turn) tire truer to true foam spec tires for the RJspeed Legends (Bolink) car. What adapter or arbor do I buy for this?. The rims are the old style hex head screw 4ps 5-40x3/8. Thanks, any help would be appreciated. Also web links would help

Legends cars use standard the 10th scale wheels for foam tires.
Any std 10th scale arbor should be fine. If your LHS doesn't have anything, CRC, RC4Less, Lefthander, Windtunnel or most any of the popular suppliers should be able to hook you up.

Old school tip for using those plastic hubs, freeze them overnight and use a sharp 4-40 tap in the 4 mount holes. Freezing makes the cut cleaner and the smaller 4-40 tap makes the hole act as if it is a lock nut.

RJ is working on some neat Legend stuff for folks like we have down here to use with our Outlaw Legends which use single cell Lipo and 21.5 blinky motors. Kinda "OPEN"s up some other possibilties for those who have "MODIFIED" their cars. If we are lucky, we might see something new by or at the Snowbirds.
