You wanna put touring car wheels on a stadium truck?

That will throw your whole gear ratio out of wack. It will be slow! Or Would it be fast?

The rustler is 17mm?

Just thought I'd point out that 1/10 touring cars use the 12mm hex, not 17mm.

Here you go buddy, no need to go through all that. Jaco has some racing tires for your rustler. I almost did it before I sold it and bought a pan car instead.

the wheels and tires that i am going to be using are 1/8 scale touring wheels and tires. and technically it will give me more top end with a taller tire which is what i am going for. I am doing top speed runs with it so far have gotten 61.9 out of it.

So you wanna use 1:8th scale hubs and axle for you're truck?

Why not save time and money and just buy the jaco's from above link? Those seem pretty sick for speed runs. But 8th scale foams are wider.... but its not worth it.

Goodluck

Jaco sells the directs fits like posted above me. but if you wanna use the 1/8 buggy foams you do the new era hubs then you can do it no problem it replaces the 12/14 hub on it to your 17mm seen quite a few vxls with it.
