I just finished narrowing the wheels today. They come out a little under 2 1/2 inch wide. I know it's still wide but it looks good on the truck. Putting on the ring on the wheels sucks it takes to long.

I wanted to make the XTM Axles wider. This is what I found. If you get Clodbuster knuckles from Hot Racing and Clod wheel axles they will fit. You will have to cut down the knuckle ends. This will add inch per side and a 12mm hex. I also got some wheel wideners from Integy they are 12mm to 17mm and add 1 inch per side. The stock axle is around 10 inch wide hex to hex. After all the up grades the axle ends up being around 13 inch wide hex to hex.

Stock Axle


Clod Hot Racing Knuckles


XTM & Clodbuster wheel axle


Integy wheel wideners 12mm hex to 17mm hex


This is the difference in knuckles
Stock XTM Crawler and Clod Hot Racing

Thanks,Yes the tires do make the body look small. This thing is braking the bank. Maybe the tires are to big NOT.

The knuckles have to be cut down to 3.10mm each end.



This is what it should look like. To the left the stock Hot Racing knuckle and to the right it cut down.





I just cant wait until it's done!


This is next!

Thanks, Yes I do have an extra body but I need it to make a Mold. So I can make more body's out of Fiberglass or Carbon Fiber.
