Glad you like it.

The idea is to free up space on the page for what's most current, rather than have a half page of stickies above everthing.

Post linky's to threads you'd like to see added here, or PM them to me, and we'll check em' out.

No, but if you think we have enough info to make a sticky in the shafty section, we can make that happen.

There used to be so tire mod threads. Cut and Shut, shaving, weighting...etc. Maybe we can find them somewhere.

Hey Andy,

How about wheel size mods? Going from 12mm to 17mm for instance.

I recently bought some hot bodies 12mm to 17mm adapters so I could throw on some proline tech 5's and big joe tires. I found I have a ton of wheel wobble at high speeds and fear I missed something in my efforts.

Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers

I'll have to do some work on that.
TTR wideners, and RC4WD mini-wideners are the most popular.
The drill-out-your-wheel type are less popular, but when done right, work well.
Wideners like what you have are more common for crawler use.

I know that this is an old tread, but THANK YOU for doing this. I have spent the day reading and learning so much in here, and now I want more. As some one that is getting ready to buy my Clod, this is amazing knowledge to see before I get mine :popcorn:
