Wolfpack Radicals made adapter back in the day that allowed you to run 1/8 scale wheels on certain 1/10 scale cars. I have a few sets 2 of which are mounted on super nitros with serpent wheels and I have a new set in the pack that was made for the TC3. Besides that company, I've never heard of anyone else doing this.

Well 1/8 wouldn't fit under any normal 1/10 body.

Why would you do this?

I don't believe that Wolfgang is making the 1/8 scale tire adapters anymore, sometimes you can catch a pair for sale on ebay . A good alternative is to use the 40mm wide GT tires for the rear. Thats what i have on my V1RRR.

The Wolf adaptor (I used to have those) will NOT work with the current 1/8th foam tires due to the offset change for the current wheels....the wolf conversion only work with the old SERPENT foam offset which should be pre 2000 period....

Still.....the question is, WHY.....

Why?? Because it looks cool. And when you stuff a .21 in a 1/10 scale onroad car sometimes you have a traction problem with 30mm wide rears. I tried the Wolf conversion it worked fine but I got tried of not being able to find bodies wide enough to fit over the rear tires, so I switched to the 40mm wide GT tires I was able to find some bodies wide enough.
