    Has anyone tried the HR aluminum extended hubs?

    Hi guys,

    I came across the Hot Racing Aluminum +10mm 17mm Splined Hubs which look super cool. Part number MXX10W01.

    These will make the truck wider by 10mm each side. Has anyone tried these?

    Imagine putting this on along with the WideMAXX kit! It would make the truck 6cm wider!

    Just get the wide kit , I never liked the idea of extended hubs - puts alot of stress on the stub axles and bearings

    If you want an even wider stance your best bet is using an offset wheel. +1 to the added stress on the axle carriers and bearing stress from an extended hub....

    If you must go wider, do it proper and get Traxxas wide kit.

    +1 on extra strain on bearings and all with extended hubs or wheels with more offset.

    Got it guys, thanks for the advice.
    I'm not particularly interested in going wider, I just saw them and thought they look very cool.
    I bought the wide kit but I haven't installed it, I'm enjoying the truck a lot as it is stock.
