OK, so I might have accidentally bought another King Blackfoot. I have HPI Super Star MT rims that I want to fit front and rear. The fronts fit fine with the HPI adapters but the rear won't fit as the stub axle isn't long enough. The wheel fits over the standard hex OK, the metal spacer fits over the stub, but there's not enough thread for me to get the nut on all the way to the nylock. I could probably fit a super narrow hex but I doubt I'd get enough thread. The wheel has a bit metal cone washer that also takes up a chunk of thread, but without it the wheel doesn't center properly as the hole in the middle of the wheel is way too large for the axle. Is there an axle with a longer thread that will fit in the King Blackfoot? I'm absolutely sure I had these exact same wheels on my last King Blackfoot without this problem.
