Just wanted to share these 17mm hexes
Bolts directly up for any arrma truck that uses 14mm hexes.
Only difference is the pins are 2.4mm instead of 2.5mm

Good find!

I have two concerns:

1). Is there play since you went from a 2.5mm pin to a 2.4mm pin?

2). Cheap can be good, but that makes me question the hex's durability.

No, not really concerned. Slot in the stock hexes are 2.6mm so there is just as much free play there. At least with these the threaded end can bottom out and press on the shaft.

I'm sure you can find threaded 2.5mm pins if you wanted.

Not concerned about the price either. These things get cnc'd probably from 17mm hex stock. Probably cost 0.50cents each to make and Traxxas sells them for big mark up.
 
The Mega Infraction 3s has a different hub shaft than the other 3s's.
Has anyone tried this kit on a Mega Infraction?
