    17 mm Hex

    So for the p4de Xl-5, Im definitely looking for some 17mm hex hubs.
    Which ones will fit? do i need an adapter kind of some sort? what company do you recommend?

    (And are RPM revolvers any good for 4s, 2200kv power?, I understand they come with hex's included?)

    Like most, I run proline F-11's and trenchers which are 17mm. I have Hot Racing 17mm adaptors with 10mm offset and they seem to do the trick. Use treadlock on the barrel nuts and it may be worth buying spare barrel nuts and wheel nuts in case you loose one. I actually got a second set of 6mm offset adaptors so I had spares and could switch between the 2 offsets.

    Hot racing or mips are what I use.

    The hot racing fit over the 12mm hex and are held on by barrel nut on stub axle. Then the wheel goes on adapter and adapter had its own nut and threads.

    The mip goes straight on stub axle and has 2 set screws the keep on stub axle. Then the wheel then nut that holds on wheel threads on to stub axle threads.

    Any 17mm hex wheel is good on 4s.

    The 6 or 10 Svillax referred to is the offset. The 10mm offset sets the wheel out a little wider.

    I would stick to 6mm offset then. Sandpaws grip puts a lot of stress on stub axles and drivetrain so adding offset to stub axle probably isn't preferable.

    It's all about the look you want.Or this.
    Do you want blue or chrome. Looks like the blue have a solid nut like the mips though. Pics are more for a color refrence. I like the mip personally. Chrome goes with anything imo.
