i am still baffled about your problem. ive never rounded out a wheel? how many hexes have you rounded out so far?

#10 2000yamahar6 Mar 02, 2012 01:45 PM

Well its 2wd so 3 both on back and one off front before I got the aluminum I guess I may try to locate some praline wheels over the week end

You rounded out a front hex on a 2wd car?!?! Are you tightening the wheels enough? Are you making sure they're lined up properly before tightening the nuts?

There's virtually no load on the fronts, there has to be something else wrong if you rounded out a front one.

#13 2000yamahar6 Mar 03, 2012 06:50 PM

No I took it off the front and put it on the rear since front just spines the front didn't strip it I did

Looking at the pictures of it online, the stock wheels look like they might be pretty soft. I would try some higher quality wheels and see what happens with them.

Run it slow in a controlled manner so that you can see if a gear is binding or skipping. A sudden load or choppy load may cause it to break stuff.
