Default Tire Balancer set Up ?

I bought this tire balancer.

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/4870

And this to use to mount the tires.

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/4354

My question is there a better way to mount the tires to the balancer?

i had to do the same when i was using that balancer, i figured out a way to correct the balancing issues for good on my truggy wheels, i started using the jconcept truggy tires, they dont have to be balanced at all, and hook up real good and show good wear characteristics

you just need a 17mm nut and hub from any 1/8th scale car, they are easier then the adaptors

Why is that adapter so hard to use? You leave one o-ring one it at all times, add the other to balance and then you just push on it and it pops out. Thats hard to use?
Much easier then a hex and nut.

I use a spare wheel hub 17mm. I took a spare throttle linkage spring and some extra fuel tubing and spaced the hub towards the middle of the bar and no problems the innovative adapter sucks if you have big hands and a 1/2 offset wheel the little rubber o-ring fights you the whole way.

Sort of what I am talking about I grabbed this off of Neo-Buggy. I gave mine a little more space for wobble room on some truggy tires.
