I use a regular prop balancer to balance my 1/10 stuff. the 1/8 buggy wheels are too big. Where can I find an adaptor to use?

this is what I use:

I figured out how to do it. I have a spare wheel hub/nut. I mount tire/wheel on the hub and luck it with 17mm nut, then I use the rubber cones from the prop balancer to fit it the holes. I will take some pic tomorrow.

Ps. My friend told me to run the tires for a pack/one tank so the inserts settle, then balance the tire/wheel.

When balancing 1/8 wheels that use a 17mm hex you can use the Innovative Designs adapter. # MA-1501

Its super light weight and real quick and easy to use so you don't have to mess with an extra hub and nut.

It has two different sizes for wheels of different thickness and uses orings so alignment is true.

You just put it in the wheel and pop an o-ring on the other end, which fits in a groove, balance the wheel and then push it out with your finger and the o-ring pops off and your ready to do the next wheel.
