    - Adjustable extenders will allow stock offset or 8mm offset.
    - Utilizes stock rear hexes that are removed when you have installed the rear extenders...
    - Bearing retainer to keep the bearing from being lost should the axle go awol from the buggy in a hard hit.
    - Installation of inner bearing is done with shaft out of vehicle so there is no hassle getting the E clip on. Slide shaft into hub, install outer bearing, hub, pin and wheel. Wheel retains 24mm pin.
    There may also be a future option of a hex on the 8mm offset for disc brakes for those running Ram-Tech disc brake systems (stock option has the hex)

    Make some adapters for fg wheels. But keep the spacing reasonable as the adapters on the market now are no good. They are really only for the monster truck tires. We need adapters for the fg leopard tires and stadium truck tires. I love the fg tires as they are belted and last 100 times better than the @^&*^%& hpi put on these cars. Maybe when they release the hard rear compound i will be happy.

    We are testing our front extenders out this week in stock and 8mm offset.
    The bearing retainer is going to help should the wheel get knocked off as it has been known to happen. Keeping that bearing attached to the axle will save a few dollars per crash

    I really like this idea of using parts we have already and giving the option to extend or not. Would need the brake hex for me.

    Looks like a great idea. I like the brake ring retainer.
