Hi

I'm trying to build a 1/5th scale 2WD Savage dune buggy and I want to use 1/5th scale front dune buggy tires. I have tried finding some HPI 24mm hexs for the Savage so I could use some Baja 5B front tires, unfortunately I cant find any, but I was able to find some 23mm hexs for the Savage, but unfortunately I have know idea what other 1/5th scale dune buggies also use 23mm hexs.

So my question is this, what other 1/5th scale dune buggies also use 23mm hexs? Once I know this I can narrow my search down.

Hi

I got them in today and getting them to fit the savage was quite easy. All I had to do was remove the Revo 6mm axle insert for it to fit my 8mm Savage axle. Unfortunately it only came with two wheel nuts instead of four, that would explain why it was only 29.99 as-is instead of 39.99. Now I just need to figure out the thread size so I can get two more hex nuts.
