I have a set of Proline Trenchers epoxied to a set of Integy 17mm hubs. One stripped again so tried a different set. I also have a set of Trenchers on Proline rims drilled and wheel pinned with epoxy yet to try??? Is there a simpler way. Both are 3.8 sizes wheels.

I have yet to strip a 17mm hub in the many years I've used them. Then again, I tend to run smaller tires than the trenchers.

Wait, I did once, but it was when I was removing a wheel. It was the e-savage hex/hub I had on my revo at the time and an HPI warlock wheel from a savage-x. They didn't have sharp corners to begin with, and the lock tight was very locked. Was a real pain getting that nut off without shattering the plastic slider axle on the revo. I've since converted all my revo's to traxxas 17mm hubs. They have much sharper corners and fit the wheel hex's tighter.

Gotcha...I've actually thought about the Erevo/Emaxx 17s but figured they wouldn't fit.
