Guess that doesn't put any extra stress on anything.
    No; never. I think we all know the risks associated with that.

    Yeah, I know, but I didn't write it.
    Here's just another opinion I didn't write: "The extension and the wheel together create tire scrub, which leads to lost turning radius and more stress on the servos and bearings. The wide stance is great but can also hinder you on tight courses..."

    Hey guys I totally agree with your stress point.Every performance upgrade adds stress to your vehicle.Thats why you do the durability upgrades along the way to help out.If you like them then thats all that matters.That being said.Those things have got to add stress and imo the way I drive they would lessen my dependability greatly.But the main thing is it looks funny.But the new hpi savage xl did the same thing,so maybe your on to something.

    Again, no. the wheel extensions will not work with the nitro pede front end parts. If you want to use them, you will need to convert your ft arms, caster blocks, hub carriers, and axles to the vxl parts. If you don't understand, let me know what your missing and I will try to explain it better.

    I got these from wheelextensions.com same guy plus free shipping. Just be advised, you'll have to grind them off a little to get them to align perfectly with the hole in the axle, but no biggie, I think it was worth it. Good Luck!

    I finally got it there's some pictures of my pede project to many upgrades to list but any questions welcome I'll do my best to answer...
    But definitely the extenders are a plus no issues here keeping my truck from rolling over that's good enough for me .








    You can see the 20mm difference with the hub extenders between these pics...
