    Question Am I missing something?

    Hello,
    I just got a set of proline gladiators for my bandit, and the mounting system for them is hexagonal where as the stock tires it is a line. Is there an adaptor I can get for it? Or should I return them?

    Thanks, Connor

    There should be a hex on the output shaft. Most that likely it came off when you pulled the wheel off.

    Bandits are pin drive, no hexes. I do not know if the stock axles are long enough to accept hexes and still fit the wheel and locknut. For hex part numbers, check the Stampede and Rustler exploded views, among others. The rear hexes are the thinner type.
    Since this pertains to a Bandit, I'm moving it out of the Stampede subforum and to the proper subforum.

    The pin drive limits wheel/tire choices so many owners switch out driveshafts, arms, links, etc. to the Rustler versions.
