I use the traxxas hexes. When used with the ten-t axle stubs, you need to shave that ring flat on the back of the hex to get the drive pin to align correctly. Then I reformed the ring by shaving the back of the hex. If it's not reformed, the rear of the hex will drag on the bearing face and plastic carrier, and do so even worse when there's some dirt. This method retains legal width. I also like using the ten-t stubs because you can then cut the end off and counter drill them to save even more weight, so I will likely continue to use these.

I'm unsure what to use with the scte axle stubs, or the 810 axle stubs. If I was building a buggy, I'd just use the 810 stubs and hexes. Legal Buggy specs are wider than sct specs.

I use the DE 17mm sct wheels. They are quite a bit stiffer than the regular DE wheels with 12mm hexes. I had no idea how flexable the 12mm versions were till my buddy showed me a set.......kinda scary. The 17mm version is substantially more stout. Still very slightly more flexable than a proline wheel....but not gumby style like their others.

so i reported that when i finished my conversion from ten-t to SCTE, i weighed the truck and got 6.5 pounds. this was on a friend's scale. i bought a cheapie food scale off fleabay and it came today. i threw the truck on it and it showed 6.75 pounds! she's a fat bish. so i put the losi diff riser in (had the rc-monster which is aluminum) and hacked a bit off the battery tray (again rc-monster which seems thicker than the losi tray). got her down to 6.68 pounds. only lightening plans in the future are CF towers and hinge pin holders. after that, i may have to go with a new chassis.

i don't want/need to get under 6 pounds, but i'd like to get at least a bit closer to the 6 pound mark (maybe 6.2 or 6.3).

i may throw her on the scale with another body. my current body has a bunch of gorilla tape on it...

yes, send me the completed chassis for testing!

seriously though, i think you guys have been around the block long enough times that i would trust your skills before any suggestion i might have. i guess i can only offer the old adage: measure twice, cut once! haha.

I gotcha, I thought they wanted to run the buggy wheels. Funny we just swapped my Ten T axles on Saturday... I hated to swap but we have to many sets of the stock size, it made sense to move over. They lasted that's all that mattered.

Ran the DE wheels this weekend and you are not kidding, might be light but they are really flexible.

Keep up the good work man!

I'm sure that will be a month or so. Look into some other options . the 1410 is a great motor. and I hear tekin has a 4 pole on the way.....

I'm sorry to hear that. I have all kinds of Novak stuff and have had pretty decent luck with them. With my Jammin I put a 13t on and never even looked at the temps. But with this thing I'm constantly monitoring. Right now, I'm running the regular 4.5 Ballistic. I want to try the 14mm rotor and also, maybe the 5.5 motor.
