Default losi 810 and DE Trinidad 17mm SC wheels?

I'm thinking about converting my 810e into a sct and was wondering if anybody knew if the DE Trinidad 17mm wheels will work?

TIA

1) the wheelbase will be shorter than all the other SC's out there (the SCTE chassis and center rear driveshaft are longer).
2) just putting the DE wheels will make the truck too wide for ROAR regulations. if you're not concerned about that, they will probably stick out of the fenders of the body.

with that, yes, the DE wheels will bolt onto your hexes.

I should've asked this sooner, but how is the durablity of these wheels? I just ordered a set so I can throw a body on my D8 and run 4x4 SC during the winter.

I'm running an AE 8.2E converted for SC. DE wheels are holding up well to my abuse

The 17MM trinidad wheel is all I use for SC. I've run a couple different sets, many races, crashes and tumbles and no problem with the wheel. Since the 17MM hex is bigger than a 12MM hex, there is less leverage on the hex to cause cracking.

You'll need a bunch of parts.. I wouldn't bother w/ the 17mm wheels.

1) chassis (scte is longer) may just want to get a bump or upgraded chassis from the get go
2) I'd just swap the axles out and get the hex's, the shafts are the same so just get the ends then you can run standard 14mm wheels
3) front bumper
4) rear bumper
5) rear center drive shaft (longer than yours)
6) front body mounts/posts
7) rear body mounts/posts

Start w/ ebay :P
