any 12mm hexed wheel.. ie: standard wheel hex.. some rims require you to make the center hole just slightly larger...

RC4WD makes quite a few adapters. A little pricy but would still be worth it. You could also search for some on Ebay, I think I saw some on there. Here is an example of the RC4WD ones: 12mm to 14mm http://rc4wdstore.com/product_info.p...roducts_id=204

Or these ones: 12mm-23mm

yep i did wen tru a few site that provides adapters for sale.

is there any DIY version and fit other type of wheels? i mean since many other kit are in the market, can we switch to use wheels for other kist instead on buying alooy hop up wheels?

You can do these: http://www.rcalloys.com/pricelist/txtbeadrings.html

They are cheaper than a set of new rims and allow you to fit regular "Maxx" sized tires. They are not true beadlocks but you could still fit different tires on the stock rims with these.

thank for the tips,

i wonder if any1 tried to glue the tyre to the rims? any disadvantages?

or i also tot of using cable ties/zip ties to secure the wheels to ther rims, basically drill small holes on the rims and rubber, use the ties to tie them together.

feedback wanted. just tell what do you think? cos i am in asia, parts from us will cost a BOMB, also many mention txt1 parts are hard to get, have any 1 order some part recently>?

you're supposed to glue the tire to the wheel if you don't have beadlocks!

Yes their is a disadvantage when you glue them, That is you cant adjust them as ez with different foams and weights. which is why I bought beadlocks I know they are a little pricey but it will save you from frustration in the long run, with the ability to adjust them. Well go to RC4wd punch in txt in to their search they have quite a few upgrades for it, which have been great. Far as stock i have yet to find anyplace that sells just the parts:(.
