If it's anything like mine....I put the cones in a hub attached to the wheel.

I hang mine between two magnets. WAY too sensitive but you get used to it.

You need a spare hub and wheel nut.

Mount the wheel on the hub with nut. center the cones on opposite sides. I use a small piece of fuel tubing on the open end for ease of changing

Is the Dubro prop balancer wide enough to do Losi XXL monster truck tires?
