Like the thread says, I need a little wider Offset. Not sure if these are called the hubs?

For example, here are the wider Offset Hubs for the Tekno ET48.3 that I got in order to run Proline 3.8" Wheels on my ET48.3.

TEKNO R/C TKR5071C Wheel Hubs 17mm 2mm Offset w/Pins EB48 (2) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00F8OMDM6/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_RK4KxbH43NY6H

Does anything like this exist for the Arrma 1/8 vehicles? I just need like a millimeter or 2... As you can see from the pics. When I mount these wheels up, they rub in the outside of the hub carrier (I think that's what it's called) and frankly don't even allow the wheels to turn.

I tried my original thinner Tekno just as a test fit, but the pin on the Tekno is a little wider, so it doesn't seem like they will work... Maybe something for the Durango?

You can see the difference in the hex depth isn't that much, but it's just enough to rub bad and not allow the wheels to spin...

I think I found what I'm looking for.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/381660705660

And here:

Only one pair was in stock on eBay there. I'll find more and post back. :)

It's hard to tell, but this might be what I need... Again - hard to tell for sure. But every pic I see makes it look like it provides a little offset.

Final answer - I'm buying 4 of these from here (good price). One for Senton and one for incoming Typhon.

Yes, what you need a wider hex hubs. In general, wider hexs place more strain on the axel bearings (esp the inners) and will wear them out faster.

I haven't tried it - but I would imagine you can replace the carriers, axels (keep the dogbones), and hex hubs with the ones from the Kraton which should add around 4mm.

Cool - Gotcha. Is that all the Kraton hubs add are 4mm each side? Interesting.

I'm thinking for the Senton, I might use the pair of +2mm on the front, and then those others on the back (they seem like they're a little more than 2 if the pics are an accurate representation)
