Arrow Widener Comparison Chart

I hope you guys find this usefull. When I was first looking for wideners I wish I had something like this for referance



I used photoshop to line up all the axles and make them all the same size so its pretty accurate.

If you have other wideners on your TLT axles please send me a pics similar to those above and I can add to it!!

Thanks!
Brandon

EDIT: Posted this in the sticky TECH thread, but I would like to keep this one also for any comments.

Inet isn't planning on making their wideners for quite some time, I guess they're really low on their priority list.

I ended up purchasing a set of the Tobee Craft 32mm ones off ebay, should be getting them soon. If interested, I'll snap a photo once I get them on.

Please do, that would be great! I have to say that the Tobee crafts are much nicer than the Inets in my opinion, you wont be dissapointed with those!!

They are made by PRP they are excellent for strengthening the axles, but sorta get in the way when crawling so I use them on my basher/sand truck

Blackfoot axles added. Thanks Frito! Looks like they are just shy of the 16mm tobee craft's but the threads are much longer which would be great for the stampede wheels.

Thanks again.

I don't think the Blackfoot threads are any wider than stock. They just look that way because I didn't have the hexes on there. I have my three piece wheels so I only use the pins and didn't think to put the hexes on for the pic. :(

Hmm ya it probably just looked that way bc there are no hexes like you said.

Has anybody tried the wideners by Gmade?? Check them out http://gmade.net/skin/gmade/goods/pr...e=030000012286

Well the tobee crafts widen the truck by 16mm & 24mm as pictured. So 10 inchs plus that, if you go with the inets it will be even more, probably around 11 1/4"

Hmm I thought it was only 1" wider total, not each side. But I may be wrong. And I think that if you have 2.2" tires and wheels you might not have to make the whole bigger. Somebody needs to try them!!
