They do fit...that's what I use and everyone at my track always borrows mine to take their wheels off.

I think the nuts are 11/32"... could be wrong though, don't really remember offhand. And umm... 8/32 is the same as 1/4" which I'm pretty sure is too small.

Didn't go to Canberra(No money)and didn't attend the 2003 NZ Nats as they were a costly trip due to being held in the South Island. The guys who went to Oz often travel to the North island as well which is cool and I enjoy beating them as often as possible.....

Last big meet was in March, back racing Modified from a year and a bit racing 27t stock as a cheaper alternative to Mod(nice idea at the time but didn't quite work out that way).

There's an indoor asphalt series starting up again early next month where a couple of the guys(and me) who've posted in the last page or so will be racing...

The XXX-S uses 8-32 threaded nuts to hold the wheels on.
A 11-32 nutdriver is typically used for 8-32 nuts. I have been using a standard Craftsman 11-32 nut driver for the Trinity low profile nuts on my XXX-S Plus.

YES..... 8-32 is the thred size, not the outside diameter.....

8 = the diameter of the bolt it fastens too

32 = 32 threads per inch......

Robo, now i see what you mean about a new kit.... another losi!!
Good luck with the changes. How was your setup last weekend? I had a slight mid corner push...any quick remedies? I usually run a softer setup at our track but for last weekends race i went up 1 to green fronts and red rear with 40wt oil. not sure what to do first to get rid of the push.

Highwayman, seen you here before and yes losi rulzzz!

Try going with a softer front spring or a harder rear spring,I would try the front spring first. Something else to think about is if the track you race on has tons of traction you might instead of going softer on the front go harder,reason is that the front tire is not keeping in contact and a stiffer spring will force it to keep in contact more.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the tip. Ill try to go harder i think. I tried softer up front before but the car felt like it was slow to transition...a lot of steering though. thanks again

I'd try a thinner front sway bar if you have one on....lets the car roll more mid-corner...
