What brand tyres? The Shepherd/Matrix rims fir perfectly.

A wheel trimmer doesn't open the hole, I use a large drill bit.

Contacts. The hole is big enough, but really have to push pretty hard to move the rim over the lever. The rear rims go right on.

The kit comes with both horns (plastic).

However, the alu Mugen ones also fit perfectly.

Thanks Michael, I bought a used Velox V8 didnt come with an horns so am just trying to find some and I will be ordering them online because the hobby stores around my area dont caring a lot of parts for 1/8 on road.

Hey Micheal trying to get information as far as what size the mugen servo horns are from center to center of the screws. Am thinking a 20mm would be about right, Do you know if this is about right as far as size is concerned ?
