Hi all,
I have a problem with my M18Pro Lipo.
The car runs wonderfully, its handling is awesome and top speed with Sidewinder micro is astonishing.

My problem is that near me I have only an outdoor asphalt track available (conceived for 1/8th models). It would be not a problem, since my M18 with its 8200kv motor seems to run head-to-head with bigger scale nitro car.

My problem is that when I launch my M18 top speed on the stright part of the track even a small scratch in the asphalt, a pebble, some foam of other cars tyres is enough to make it literally fly away (first RC ground-sky missile?). No big damage until now, just a broken body tower, but it's not fun this behaviour. So I think I should have bigger ground clearance and bigger wheels to get rid of it. As example I seen a friend with a Dromida RTR kit running flawlessy with its car... another 1:18th scale but absolutely bigger than M18 in every aspect. My M18 is on another level, obviously, but he can run having fun and I cannot... :cry:

So.. is there a way I could use bigger wheels on my M18Pro Lipo? Like 1/18 touring car wheels? I understand factory foam tyres are great for carpet, but I think I need rubber tyres and most of all bigger tyres to also gain in ground clearance..!

If no other wheels can be mounted, is there a way to convert my M18Pro Lipo into an M18T Pro (if using these adaptors will enable me to use standard 12 hex touring wheels)?

Thanks in advance,
F.

Those touring wheel adapters are for the M18 truck, not for M18 touring.

You should add spring spacers and loosen up the downstops.
