I'm pretty stoked. I put on Team Redcat splined aluminum hubs that extend the axles a half inch each. Then was able to fit Gorilla taped 2.8 trenchers on 17mm F-11 wheels. Instant basher.

Ditto, have done the same to mine using the team associated hex adapters but the crap UK weather recently means I haven't used them in anger yet apart from tearing it across my lounge lol (I was that bored and the Mrs was out! ;)) What I did notice instantly was how the Typhon wants to wheelie everywhere now with all that new traction?? May need a bloody wheelie bar now :confused:

Cool :)
A photo came up in the random media pics on here with a set on a typhon. Said they fit straight on... Hopefully they do the job !
Now to find some f11 rims with 17mm hex in Aus :-S
I had a pain getting all the parts for this upgrade in the UK, hex adapters, wheels and tyres! The team associated adapters I got from the US and got stung for import duties, the wheels cam from china and took forever, and the tyres where out of stock at modelsport an wheelspin so had to wait for those too. I have it all fitted now though and it looks way better than stock, i'll have to check handling as soon as I get it out.

Import tax on something that cheap ? Whoa... We don't get stung until its over 1000 dollars here in aus....
2.8 trenchers can be picked up at most hobby shops around here... But getting that size rim with 17 mm hex seems to be a long shot and will end up being an ebay job i think.
I gather it will lose some steering but should be a better basher with the wider tyres :)

I use a trackstar balancer mounted sideways on my charging box. I've balanced 7.1" tires on this as well as the stock typhons.
Simple to do and makes a drastic change to the vibration and stability of the car.

Nice ! :-D
Im still waiting on my hexes....
Do the 2.8 rims fit on without extending the hexes ? Or do they hit the steering blocks/hubs ?

Mine rubbed the hubs and blocks just barely. But enough that it would probably burn the motor up.

I thought they might... Considering how much my stock rims already do just that !
Its wearing against the bearing bit hehind the hex and theres worn out grooves on the inside of all my rims :-/
