Tell me if this is a noob question, but I couldn't easily find an answer.

So I was looking at getting a DEX210V2 to race, and was looking at some rims to match the colour scheme that I use. I saw that DE Racing (whose wheels I normally use) do some green ones that would be great, but not in the DEX210 sizes. Can you convert to say a 12mm hex at all to use other rims, or am I best just sticking to the white ones?

Ive seen a few people convert the rear hubs to associated so they can use 12mm hexs.

Get white ones, dye them with Rit-Dye to green, problem solved.

seen a few discussions about converting to over to 12mm hexes both front and rear.

Be curious to know what is the definitive accepted "best" method to use for rear as well as fronts, but more so rears.

I had originally bought 12mm hexes to convert the back over. I wanted to run the DE wheels too. I don't want to run hexes up front because I only run inline steering and with a hex I'd be forced to run trailing.

what conversion plans were you using for the rear?

I was going to use the Proline clamping hexes with the cone shaped aluminum spacer and axle shims from the B4.

so this:

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBVEJ&P=7

6077-00 Hexes



and these:

9608B Coned spacer
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXEAH8&P=7



7368 Shims

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LX2976&P=7



and this will allow you to run rear 12mm hex wheels on the rear?

and to confirm, which brand to use for wheels at that point?

Those were what I was going to use. I never did buy the wheels to verify it would work though but that was the plan.

All you really need are these, the offset for b4 rims and 210 rims are the same. For the front, these and these. Just add the front hexes. Just be aware that this will lock you into 3mm of trailing.

On the B4, the axle pin is behind the hex. On the 210, it's in front of it. How can you get the pin on with those hexes without modifying the hex?

Again, how do you get the pin on in front of them? It's physically impossible unless you modify the hex.

slide the pin in, then push the hex over it. pin will now be behind hex. just get the proline or jconcepts hex and you will see how it works. some shims are necessary depending on what rim you are running

I have a set. That doesn't work. The pin must go on after the hex on the 210 and it can't unless you modify those hexes. Someone needs to take a picture to prove to me that they can successfully violate physics. If you clamp them in front of the pin as every other car does, you need to use the associated cone behind the pin or else a butt load of spacers.

Keep in mind when I say the pin must go on after the hex, I mean that the pin must be behind it like every other car.
