    RPM Slingshot front for Elec. Stampede

    Hey Team,

    I am looking for a front pair of RPM Slingshot rims. Anybody know a source as they’ve been discontinued.

    Will it look bad to use “rear” Deep offset rims all around? I think I can source tears with the 12mm hex.

    I appreciate your help.

    Your offset will be wrong. The rear rims up front will rub the front suspension arms at full steering.

    If you can find 6mm extensions and run them only on the front axles, the rear rims will work up front.

    Are these 2.2" rims? I remember my masher 2ks on 2.2s. 2.2s look good on a stampede.

    You could consider widening the front end, allowing the use of the same offset on the front and rear. The RPM Slingshot are, indeed, 2.2 wheels; I have a set for my Rustler.

    Thanks guys. I do have the RPM wide arms, turnbuckles, and castor links so maybe it will work fine?

    It's the offset of the rear rims not the length of the arms that will cause the rubbing

    What if I used a wider hex spacer? I could use extension hubs in the rear so the rims are the same distance from the chassis.
