if he is on a budget, to start I would just run the plastic holders, and when they wear out or break, replace them with aluminum, the plastic will work fine for a while thgouh,

What is the advantage of running 17mm hex`s for the wheels? also can you post a pic or send it to me of the work done to the rear brace?
Thanks

The diffs come with grease which will work fine to start with. Then get my cross pin converstion kit.

I am using 17mm hubs to narrow the truck up some. The proto truck had shorter arms but I used extended 23mm hubs. Also, the 17mm hubs are half the weight of the 23mm's. And Pro-line finally released offset 17mm wheels and I like them.

Also, when we were testing the tuck, 17mm wheels would easily strip out. But now I am using the KMW Racing flandge nuts which stop that and really hold the wheel well.

to anyone wishing to purchase an arena tr, i wish you would give gene a shot. he provides great info and support, i think that is more valuable than the little amount of money you MAY save.
