Got enough o-ring grease for $15 to last the next 10-15 years. 🤣

I don't enjoy clothes shopping, so avoid it. In fact I can't remember the last time I did. I usually order tees and hoodies etc online. With summer around the corner and a fast growing teenage son, we just went and did a big shop. Bought shorts, tee's and hats from the very first shop we went into. $500 worth, all surf branded stuff so it should last longer than one season. Saved about $300 with sales and discounts. That's some of my bonus spent but at least I won't have to clothes shop for another 5 years 😅.
 
Picked up some upholstery foam to try and "save" my Xmaxx tires from the landfill. Some Wiha hex bits..and, against my better judgement, a set of Porkline Mirage TT tires on the dreaded Raid wheels.. hopefully the hex adapters hold up. This is a big step since I haven't purchased any Porkline tires in like 25 years..😉🤞

@KnowAir .. you know you're going to regret this purchase..... 😩 To answer your question, if you run 6s no the hex adaptors won't hold up..!!
 
I received this order today. I need to order bigger carts from Jenny, their S/H is painful on small orders.

It's a catch 22 ...
I want to wait til I get a Bigger load before hitting Buy ,BUT the odds of the item(S) getting snatched from under you while you wait is High.. 😤

I know.. then either pony up another $80 for Porkline's aluminum adapters or $50 for chinesium ones from AliEx.. like I said against my better judgement I bought these. Thing is, I'm really desperate for some good traction on my clay track with Mojo sized tires.. they're going on my Typhon XL (Mojo armed Kraton) truggy mini pins work great but too wide, and too fragile for 6s power.. what's a fella to do🤷‍♂️
 
..I've been looking at the hex adapters that Proline uses with the Raid wheels..wondering if theres any way to add a "backing plate" to the backside of them? Using longer screws that thread into a drilled and tapped piece of aluminum? Like a backing collar if you will. Hmm.. isn't the failure of the plastic adapter from them splitting apart? Clearance is indeed tight behind the wheel but, perhaps a 3-5mm piece of aluminum or even steel would hold things together?
Oh wait, it's the hex that breaks not the flat screwed portion right? Idk. I'll roll the dice and see what I win..or not🤷‍♂️🍻
 
ordered some teng tools t handle ball ends from 2.5mm to 8mm
Nice! I have a set of Eklind T-handles from Homer Depot that are quite handy. The best part is the entire length of each hex wrench is hex shaped..round one off? Out comes the 4" grinder, grind off a wee bit to make new again. Sweet.👌

So, looking at the included adapters with the Mirage TT wheels, I'm thinking you use either or? Meaning plus offset or zero? I'd think the positive or plus offset are the susceptible pieces? Hoping I'm right and using zero offset adapters will negate breakage.🤞
