Default What is the size of those wheel nuts?

Hi,

Can somone tell me what is the size of the wheel nut? I am going to get the flange nut instead since the stock ones put a lot of pressure on the wheels and causing it very very difficult to remove. The harder to tight in cause more difficult to remove the wheels.

I also have that problem, with any car actually. What I do is, I use a body reamer and enlarge the the hole slithly so that it fits on the axle a little looser. This way it comes off the axle very easy every time, no mattter how hard you tightend the nut.

Thanks,

that will result in some less 'secure' racing, it will affect your handling!

I would not be able to tell the diffrence with the two because for what stiffness is needed graphite is fine. It's a little easier on the wallet too. I hope this help's because it's 3am here and FFG is typing this..(dont worry Fisher Im cofused..).R.
Yeah I love the CF , just saw a few people refering to Graphite upgrades and was kinna confused there because CF is stock. Finally got my order from RC mushroom 10 days from HK not too bad.6 pr of Fast tires 5 NR turbo GP's Motor mounts Fuel filter Body pins and a free pit/beach towel for $102 shipped.LHS is trying to gig $20 for Fast tires and $8 on Turbo plugs. Have I mentioned Lately that I hate my LHS's ? Thx again FFM/FFG & Sparksy
