I would check on the part number with someone who runs the XXX-S...That was the first losi touring car that contained by the "losi" hex and the standard 12mm hex....

Most likely nothing will happen other than you won't been to be careful when you buy new wheels

the origanal SW wheel hex's are much smaller the all the other manufacter's hex's .Why they did this who knows. Chances of the SW hex skipping inside the wheel is very likely to happen if you use anything but the losi wheels. here is a pN# for the adapters for the xxs but not sure of they will work for the SW ( due to axle diameter)

If you street weapon has the hexes that came with it - then wheels that are not specifically made for a street weapon will not fit...That's it...it street weapon hexes are smaller (or is its biger) than the standard 12mm hexes that AE, Tamiya, Yokomo, HPI, etc uses...

So what I meant was that when you go looking for some new wheels, you won't have to be extra careful and buy only wheels made for the street weapon

They will if you put CVD's in the front(with 3/16" axles).Then you can use XXXS or TC3 hexes.XXXS CVD's will fit the Street Weapon both front and rear.You can also use the RPM adaptor kit with the stock front dogbones but you will have to use a 200mm body.

You got it! RPM kit widens the car to 200mm so beware!
