i'd really like to see your wheel adapters. i don't wanna ghetto-rig either and would like to keep my 'stock' wheels. i've played around with some hex adapters, etc but so far haven't gotten any good ideas.

ok for the wheel adapters they would slide over where the stock wheels connect and widen/adapt for 2.2 then u would use a longer screw(front setup) and for the back im still tryin to figure it out...i'll have tummy tuck pics in a sec

EDIT:before


after:

yeah please get me some pics of the wheels when you start messin' with them. i think i have pretty much the same idea as you but haven't been able to figure out how to get the hex adapter mounted to the nylint hubs. i did sortof get an idea from another post though to use a hot allen wrench and melt a hex hole in a 2.2 hex adapter, glue it to a 2.2 rim then mount as one piece onto the nylint hubs. just not sure this black fiber/plastic stuff my 2.2 hex adapters are made of will melt... lol.
