xxx-s bill, I grew up in Portland, I sat on the roof of my house and took pictures of the mushroom cloud when St. Helens blew, I think I've still got a bottle of ash somewhere around here.

Default blue hex adapter and tightning wheel nut

My car came with the blue hex adapters(with the set screw) on its axles, when I use a dish wheel, I can not use a socket to tighten the wheel nut. On the back wheels there is not even enough thread to come to the top of the nut.

I tried to search the thread but I really did not find any good solution.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bonus question, From what I understand these hubs make my car a tiny bit wider than normal. Is this small amount of extra width, what makes it so difficult to mount any standard 190mm to the car without some part of the body rubbing on a tire?

Someone reccomended a Losi body, it was unclear if they recommended the Losi body because it was a tad wider or because the mounting holes were placed precisely correct for the XXX-S.

I am planning on buying a ROAR Approved Body soon and I do not want to screw it up or have to worry about the body rubbing on the tires.

The main reason for the use of the AE TC3 hubs is to get enough clearance to run foams. You don't need those hubs for rubber tires. the losi bodies are nice because it comes with the holes already marked. the body will rub but I think any body will rub.

Hey James, I dont know if your running that Dynamite bottom cover, but my friend is making rear skid plates out of CF, they look awesome, I'm going to pick mine up today so you can check it out tomorrow. They eliminate the droop screw holes and basically come out how we cut the plastic bumpers.
