I think they are a stronger composite, they sure feel way tougher than the stock tamiya plastic thats for sure!

Most are made out of alum or steel. I have seen some made out of fiberglass. I don't think plastic would hold up very good under a load it might for a little bit but it well eventually break.

I have the aluminum one for the TXT1 Truck with the big hole. I am looking for a stronger one that fits the clod rims. Where do you get you steal and metal ones for the clod?

Thank you, Keep Up With The Replies!

CPE has some but you have to drill holes in the rim for his to work. RC4WD has some and i think that New ERA has some also. I got a set off of e-bay but you have to make the center hole of the rim bigger. other that that you might google them.

I have the TTR wideners, I don't know what kind of material it is, but it does look like either stronger plastic or some kind of composite.

More importantly though....the patterns for both TXT and clod are there, so you can use them with either wheel. That's what I really like about them.....well that and not having to drill 5 holes in my wheels.

They actually calibrated very easy. Sometimes the rear stalls, but not usually.
I run them off of one lipo, usually a 3S 50C, but have used a 2S 30C as well.

i m going to run a extra power for my two large servo to see if it get better .
i use the big tire with standard 13t pinon that should be okay.

The widener bodies are molded with glass filled nylon. They hold up to a good amount of power as long as the wheel bolts stay tight. If the barrel nuts start to loosen up, they can strip out. They do have holes for both Clod & Txt wheels.

I have a set that I use for TXT wheels and they work great. A little lock tite and they are good to go.
