I offer the MSD ultimate wideners that you can use with the blackfoot stubs or the AE stubbs too. Very affordable!

I put bearings in the axles, so i used the brass bushings as spacers..just had to thin them down a little.

I got three axles drilled out to accept the hex pins, but the third one ate my bit! Ended up filing a panelling nail to fit.

If anyone uses the ASSociated 3/16" axles, make new hex pins and save yourself the trouble of drilling into that hardened axle stuib!

So......Whats the answer? Anyone, Bueler???

sooo........ not to be a jerk but this picture really souldn't be used for reference other than seeing what the wideners look like, because the pivots aren't lined up and since some of the shots look like they were shot with a horribly fish-eye lens so the perspectives are all different.......... (my lines are drawn vertically from the bottom axle)

ok so for the newbie out there can you guys let me know what the benefits of widening does? and can it be done on a tlt with the normal axles or do I need to upgrade those aswell?

Being wider helped my rig on side hills.....


Being wider also cut back on some passages and they way you attack them...


I like the front about a 1/4 inch wider then the rear....
