Default does anyone make extended hubs for jammin'?

does anyone make extended hexes for the jamming truggy so you can run 0 offset wheels?

i really like the aka's, but they do not make 1/2 offset wheels. i have been running a friend mugen and bought some tires, now i bought a new jammin and it takes 1/2 offset instead of 0.

thanks

A tip for you: They pretty much all fit.

Mugen hubs, Kyosho hubs, Xray hubs, even Losi hubs. BUT... get the nuts with them. Jammin has a different thread pitch. (I run Mugen hubs on my XRAY... narrower ones, so I can run the half offsets.)

Any rim will work, you dont have to use AKA's. Proline, J Concept, Jammin, and Losi lpr rims are all offered in 1/2 offset.
Jammin makes hub extenders, 12mm is what you will want.

Domit, I am very new to all of this, I race a XB8TQ and was advised by one of the local guys who races XB808 (upgraded from XB8TQ) to buy the offset hubs.
So are you saying I can buy these ones.
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...el-Hubs-2mm-X5

As opposed to these ones?
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Hard-Coated-2

If I fit the Mugen ones will I need to buy the Mugen wheel nuts (as opposed to just reusing my Xray ones) and do I use the Xray pins or do I need to buy Mugen pins?

Thanks in advance.

2mm is not enough. If you want the same width you need 12mm. Jammin and Hobao (both Ofna) are the only ones that use a different thread pitch on thier hubs.

Those will work and are of the same width. And there is no such thing as "Hudy Aluminum..." (Hudy STEEL is superior to the steel used in the drivetrain of other cars.)

I run those exact ones (the Mugen ones) on my XT8 I believe.

Mugen and XRAY are the same thread on wheel nuts. No need to change. Pins are the same size, use what you have.

Good luck finding a way to remove the ice dispensers in front of the rear wheels on that car. LOL It will definitely teach you to drive!

Sorry, I may be confusing things, I am running a buggy as opposed to a Truggy, would thes 2mm or 12mm or I just found 15mm http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-17mm-Wheels-4 work best for me?
And I would like to run with standard rims and tyres (as I already have plenty of these)

Oh, so the XB8TQ is a difficult car to drive? If that is so then I feel better as I am forever putting the damn thing on its lid.

Would fitting 15mm wider hubs help in the handleing? I figure the wider the footprint the more stable it will be.

I understand the difficulties in short wheel base cars, this is my current 1:1 scale toy.

yea i know, but the aka premounts only come in 0 offset and i hate mounting tires. so im looking for hubs to widen it so i can still run the 0 offset.
thanks.

Ok, I thought you were talking about trying to run 0 offset wheels on your Jammin TRUGGY. Obviously adding 15mm hubs to a buggy would be incorrect.

I believe the correct wheel extension is 9 mm if you want to run 0 offset wheels. Dace manuf. produces them. I currently have a set brand new in package( blue anadozide if interested. I believe I paid $50 if interested pm me.
