Thumbs up Standard wheels for buggies from 2016

The new IFMAR 1/10th offroad rules has some long awaited news in point 4.2.11:
"From 2016 onwards, a standard Hex. mounting and standard ‘wheel offset’ will be adopted for all wheels (front and rear will have different offset). The final dimensions and a new drawing will be included in this rule later in 2015 after investigation of suitable dimensions are completed.
Wheel mounting:12.00mm hexagon.
Wheel centre hole:5.00mm diam.
Wheel off-set from mounting face: Rear 11.00mm 4WD Front 2.00mm.
Wheel off-set is measured from the hex. mounting face to the outside of the outer rim at the wheel circumference."

2wd front offset is not yet included.

Good move IFMAR!

When I got into offroad a couple of years ago, I thought it was ridiculous that there was no standard for 1/10 wheels. Half the rims I bought for my 2wd buggy didn't work very well, due to offset differences and my 4wd uses 14mm hexes, so I couldn't share rears. Even with 12mm hexes on, they never quite fit right. It was highly annoying.

This is great news.

This is great. This helps racers, hobby shop owners, and even parts manufacturers.

I always enjoyed this about 1/8th scale off road.

Is 11mm rear offset what we have now? Trying to visualize it in my head - sounds like the new rears may be 'deeper' with the hubs/hexes further into them? Maybe I'm crazy.

When I get home I'll have to measure.

After reading the rule, I wonder which cars currently have this exact off set. Some might need modified hexes. But I want to know, is it like the AE off set or TLR or someone else.

Good question; measuring my 22 rears it came to about 12mm.

Default great news

this is great news for everyone except those that buy used tire lots dirt cheap because the seller's new buggy can't run their old wheels.

I think this is great. I like having 'standard' parts. Easy to swap tires/wheels with friends and what not.

Finally something that will help the hobby shop owners out. Being able to stock one standard rim will be awesome.

DEX410 owners are going to come in from the cold? Think of all the poor orphaned 14mm hexes!

Durango xray will stop pulling that bs now hehehe. Hopefully rims as abundant as the 17mm 1/8 standard.

I hope they decide on the 2.4 wheels as well, just ban them, they don't make the gluing any easier heck if the tires a bit loose is more difficult to align the bead.
