I use my 1/10 arbor (4mm threaded shaft)
I use a 4mm tap and tap threads into the rc18t wheel opening (hole is 3mm) then i thread the rc18t wheel onto my arbor. The tap doesnt open the hole in the wheel.....If you dont want to buy a tap you can self tap the wheels on the arbor....you just need to use a little muscle.....you are tapping a relatively soft plastic.....

4 second laps if you can hold a good line without getting taken out from back markers

Are you using an arbor for a 1/10th scale pan car foams ? I have one of these and im hoping to accomplish the same thing for our 1/18th BSR foams and Parma foams.

You the man !! It works perfectly. Now I can use my hudy truer for 1/8th, 1/10th, 1/12th, and 1/18th scale foams. Thanks again.
