Default T4 wheel problem

I have a T4 that I have installed the traxxas brushless system in. I have trashed the centers out of 2 sets of rear wheels in prolly like 4 runs since I have installed this combo. I have made sure that the wheels are tight each time I use it. Is there a better wheel system out there that will stop this from happening? This thing flys when the wheels stay on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The only thing that might be a little better is the QC wheel system for the GT2.

Although it sounds like you don't have the pin lined up with the wheel when you put it on, which causes the pin to spin and strip out the wheel. Just because the wheel is tight, donsent mean that the pin is set in the wheel.

Make sure the pin is in all the way, you should be able to see it go in the slot (or you can align both the pin and the socket vertical, should be hard to miss). Consider getting new nuts, they could be loosening enough to make the pin and rim come apart enough to get the rim stripped. The only upgrade would be to the quick change system, but that will require all new rims, as well as the conversion itself.

What do you have to do to convert it ? Also where do you get this stuff from to do it?

just make sure you tighten the nut tight enough.

Well you would need wheels

Then you would have to get some tires, and some tire glue if you don't have any.

If he doesn't have a team or factory team he'd need the cvd shafts as well, I think associated uses MIP
