Just installed the Yeah Racing Dark Drifter 6 LED kit.. the Controller plug is too thick to fit in a Spektrum DX3 reciever.. some widdle work and it fit right in, then the led's work.. but the flash sequence does not... im waiting to hear back from Yeah racing and the 3rd party vendor that i bought them from to see what we can do.

Hey Twisted XT,

Did you use the inside of the Nylint tires for the outside edge on the Revo wheels?
The inside (larger ID) bead fits without mod?

Isn't the outter bead ID smaller the the inside?
So you trimmed that bead out?

Can you post or email some pics of what you did?

THX!!

trimmed the revo rim down to the width i desired, then trimmed the nylint tires to fit.. theres a lip you can follow to trim that worked out nicely. took glue to hold her in.. works good.

Yeah some revo or maxx rims would be the ticket. 2.2's are under a 14 inch rim to scale which is why they look tiny.

Also needs a fuzz more track width to give it some fill.
