Not sure what the stock width is, anything is possible with the right tools and a bit of custom work. This guy got his down to 9 1/4" hex to hex.

Honestly, you might be better off just going with Axial axles. If you want more beef than that, another axle that's easy to narrow is the Twin/Mad Force axles.

I did this set up but the problem was the top of the axles where hitting the scx-10 chassis. These axles where narrow alsoi had narrow under 10 outside tire to outside tires.I was also running cvds in front.
