1/8th scale wheels don't have an inside hex. They ride on a pin on the inside and a lever snaps them in on the outside. They are completely incompatible with a 1/10th scale without major modifications.
You might think a wider tire will give you better traction, but not always. You won't do very well with a 1/8th tire on either of those cars. The weight and the size of the tire will slow down your acceleration unless you are packing a lot of extra horsepower (a .12 engine doesn't have the hp to overcome this). You are better off lightening your car and using 30mm rear touring car tires.
thanks for the replys guess ill have to stick w/ what i have unless i can find those adapters. Just using old wore out hole shot tires now they get fairly good traction just not enough to pull the front wheels up.Not trying to race this thing just want to be able to pull a wheelie for a little while maybe i just need a bigger engine that will pullit up once its going!!!again thanks for the replys
