I personally wouldn't use heat. All that's happening is Super Fine Dust is getting in there and making it difficult to remove. I would be soaking it in Simple green or Trying Compressed Air before Heat.

Fastest easiest way would be Solvents of Any type, Iosol, Naptha ect...

Does anybody know if it's possible to use the HPI (offset +4.5) wheels on the SCTE ?
Does the offset just mean it'll be 4.5mm wider ?

I think some of these look absolutely fantastic : http://www.amainhobbies.com/index.ph...&filter_mfr=16

Probably preaching to the choir, but Horizon Hobby customer service is great. Called today with more of a comment or suggestion from the consumer side than anything, but they ended up offering to send me replacement parts to keep me rolling.
Just wanted to give them some props. Things like that go a long way to keep me running Losi.

they fit, BUT your truck will not be legal for racing as it will be too wide. I run blitz offset wheels on my SCTE when I run it on-road, no width rules

+1 my mcx2 helicopter was having problems and they sent me a brand new $70
5-in-1 unit to fix it. (mcx2 still doesn't work, but thats my fault)

I'll just be doing rounds on the track, no 'real' racing, so I
should be fine then.

Does the wider wheelbase change the handling much ?

You're changing the entire geometry of the truck so yes, it will change the handling.

I think the important word was "much", and I hoped to imply "and if so, in what ways"

I imagine it would increase the leverage on the suspension and you will need to run heavier oil and stiffer springs to compensate.

They will also stick out of the body and look silly - IMO

I can imagine a wider wheelbase could also give more stability / less traction roll.
And looking silly / sticking out depends ofcourse. If you're running a VW Beetle body with trimmed wheel arches already it wouldn't matter much since the wheels will by definition be sticking out.
