i suggest using Proline's 1/8 hub extenders, which can convert your 17mm hexes to proline's 23mm, so you can use their wheels.

The Ofna adapters are too long. DaceMfg and KMW Racing are making them in shorter lengths of 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2".

I am suprised nobody has suggested waiting for the "new" mugen truggy to come out, or even the msrx5t and then converting it to the long arm.

The X5T truggy at the hobby shop is the standard MBX5 buggy kit with the non-used buggy parts removed and the MSR conversion added. It does not have long arms. The long arm truck due out this summer is being designed and tested by Mugen Japan.

But, I agree that the Mugen truck this summer will be a major contendor in the truggy race. Four Mugen MSR's with wheel extenders all made it into the A-main at the Nitro Challenge a few weeks back. Hughes & Tillman turned just as fast lap times as Bradley with the CRT, Pavidas with the ST-R and Maifield/Saxton with the ST-1's. All the other trucks had a long arm suspension, where the Mugen's still had wheel extenders. Hughes even ran the 30mm long ProLine extenders with offset wheels. The truck was as wide as it was long and still ripped.

I just checked out your website Tony and it says the long arm kit is out of stock. Will you be putting more of these kits together?
