    EMP 1/5 scale hubs anyone??

    I can't find anyone who has the EMP 1/5 scale adapter hubs. Nitro RC won't call me back and they show out of stock online. Is there anyone who has another solution or a set they might sell? I'm going to give this car one more shot with a 1/5 scale GRP before I move on to something else. I have the 1/8 scale GRP's now and they were better than the factory but still not enough.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the Treaxxas forums!

    Their website show that they are out of stock. So does Nitro Hobbies' website.

    Have you tried to contact EMP directly?
    https://emperformanceproducts.com/contact/

    Maybe they can let you know if there are any stocking distributors. If not, at least when they will be producing another set.

    I have one of their older 1/5 adapters on my Slash 4x4:



    Good luck!

    Yes, I contacted EMP through the site but no one responds. I left messages with nitro as well... your slash looks killer. I have a rustler we converted to the revo 6s motor and ESC. I am thinking about setting it up like that.

    EMP no longer offers the 1/5 adapters for the Slash 4x4. Only for the 6mm shaft X-01, E-Revo and X-Maxx.

    I think I got mine a long time ago through Hobby Heroes. I just checked their sight and they no longer offer EMP adapters.

    Good luck!

    Hopefully, someone will call me back soon. IF I cant get a better tire combo I will be selling the Xo-1 and continuing high-speed stuff with another platform. I have had two major accidents now due to tires ripping apart on the big end.

    What tires have you been running?

    Several of the high-speed guys run BSR Team Purple wheels/tires:

    They are out of stock at Tower right now, but are due back later this month. You could probably find them elsewhere using your Google-fu.

    Good luck!

    In the past, I had purchased a cap pack from EMP through their website. I didn't receive my product.. Once I complained, they just refunded my money with no explanations.

    I then went to their eBay store and bought the same item and it was shipped right away. Don't understand why, but it did. Maybe try contacting them through their eBay listing:

    Good luck!

    I used GRP 1/8 scales. I ordered some foam tires from gone bananas racing. We shall see... I really would like to get a set of 1/5 scale GRP's on here.

    I don’t know the axle size of the Arrma’s these adapters are for, but check these out:

    lol, something similar happened last year when I tried posting pics. Instead of the pic showing, it showed a dead link with **** through it.

    Good find! EMP finally emailed me back and said they had some refinished ones that would sell me. I will keep you guys posted.

    Thanks for your help!
