when you guys get your truck i dont know what types of wheels you run or still have but i personally like the proline standard offset 23mm wheels so i run these hubs <http://www.dacemfg.com/Store_Detail.cfm?ID=202968&InfoID=2293> i like them alot and i really like how they look on the truck. if you want to stay with the 17mm standard wheels i beleive you will need kyosho hub extenders but i dont know which ones

you can use standard seventeens but the truck actually comes with an offset that is betweeen standard and half. to get the stock offset which by the way i thinkk the truck works much bettter with you need to run some sort of offset hex whether it be 17 or 23. or if you want you can just run regular standard wheels and have the truck a little narrower than stock

When i had my EC, my B7 hit the battery box door. just dremel a little bit off the door, or try shimming the motor up.

Please check out the XRay forum www.teamxray.com/xforum as there are multiple threads on this topic.

XRay has their own offset, but you can run the pro line wheels (either offset) with the truck, standard offset making the truck a little more narrow, and the 1/2" offset making the truck just a little wider...

But if you want the box stock track width with a Pro-Line standard offset rim, you have to run the 6mm extended hubs from kingheadz or another like company.

On my XRAY xb8 tq, I've been using the proline mbx-5 body, but the pipe, air filter, and even the radio box rubs on the body. I love proline but because the body is made for a mugen it just dosn't fit quite rite.

Just wondering what kind of body is the best? Jconcepts, Majestic, other?
Also Rocco what's up with the c-clips on the truggy, why?
