    17mm to 23mm hub adapter

    Does anybody know of an adapter of a 17mm hex to adapt to a 23mm hex?

    Use these
    They fully replace the 17mm ones.

    (might need these or these to go with them, not sure)

    Hello sfr4x4,

    How do I use the Proline HD 23mm hexes? Do I remove the 17mm hex and replace it with this?

    I am new to this hobby. Will you kindly give me instructions on how to proceed with this?

    thanks

    The way it looks, you completely remove the 17mm hex hubs, then install the 23mm ones and secure them with a small wheel nut that threads onto the end of the stub axle (you will no longer need the 17mm parts at all).
    Also, you'll need axle pins if the 23mm stuff doesn't come with them (Traxxas pt# 4955)


    Hope that helps.

    You keep the drive pin and the original wheel nut to secure the 23mm hex onto the stub axle. I had to use thread locker. My original wheel lock nut nylon wasn't strong enough to hold up against my Tekin RX8 and 2050kv setup. My wheel actually flew off while i was rocketing across a rough grassy field at about 40 mph. Luckily I came off the throttle immediately and the drive pin was still there. Also on a stock 3905 I had to use 4 of the shim washers to move the play.

    +1 on the shim washers get extra.I needed more But i used a 1/4 inch washer for now.Lock tite is a must IMO I also went to the steel nuts.Also get a few extra packs of the axle pins for your kit
