• imex and Yokomo Hotlaps wheels trick

  • I saw some 2.0″ imex disc wheels on ebay a while ago. the plain disc design was far from yoke Hotlaps aero wheels. but the structure itself looked pretty much same to me. it was 3 years ago

    then a close friend found me some imex wheels recently. so, i could build more 834B wheels from Hotlaps 2WD front wheels plus imex wheels today. it worked!

    thank you so much Aaron!








    and the leftovers..

  • Yokomo YZ-834B wheels from pargu

  • my favorite wheels for 834B are Hot Laps Super Aero wheels since when the wheels came at ’86 or ’87 i remember.
    and pargu made these aluminum wheels after the original and custom works wheels. you can buy the wheels from his store ( http://www.pargustore.com ) or through ebay

  • Hot Laps 834B front wheel hubs

  • Yokomo Hot Laps made nice wheels for 834B and RC10. and, there were a few more parts from them include the oneway wheel hubs. the header says it was made of magnesium which is lighter than aluminum

    the reason I got the hubs is the shape. the offset is identical to the originals. but Hot Laps hubs allow to adjust the offset by switching with the each side, right to left and left to right


    like this


    the offset is quite right with modern 2.2″ wheels

  • wheels and tires for YZ-834B and 870C

  • already posted this in Korean(한글) on my another blog which I’m building over the last couple of days. and I’m doing this again. I noticed I forgot to put Custom Works wheels in this picture. but I still like this yellow, white, and pinky picture


    the original 1.75″ wheels are yellow and very cool. but they don’t showed up anymore on ebay. 870C wheels are 2.0″ and can be replaced with.
    and, there are few ebay sellers and online hobby shops sell 2.0″ tires

    Tamiya #53059 Wide Stud Spike Tires

    Tamiya wide stud tires work with  870C front and rear wheels both. so it’s not a problem if you only have the front or rear

    870C wheels are deep dish. and the offset is identical to the original yellow wheels

    Front narrow ZC-800
    Front wide ZC-801
    Rear ZC-805


    Yokomo TR-8 was stock rear tires for 870C

    Front TF-8 (S, M, H compound)
    Rear TR-8


    with ZC-800 for front and rear both. and, tamiya wide stud tires


    834B still runs great with 2.2″ wheels and modern tires. rc10talk forum member kustomizerz made this video
    and his chassis are here

    there were a few kind of 2.15″ wheels. ZC-821 front, ZC-822 9mm deep dish front, ZC-825 deep dish rear, ZC-827 with (almost) flat dish
    ebay is the best source for the wheels. 2.15″ ROAR wheels work with modern tires as well.


    2.2″ 30 series wheels ZC-83x

    maybe you can find ZC-837 or ZC-837W 30 series wheels. but they don’t have negative offset. you need to modify the rear wheel hubs if you want to use ZC-827 or ZC-837 wheels

    Front ZC-831
    Rear ZC-835 (deep dish)
    ROAR size wheels ZC-82x

    2.15″ (ROAR) wheels

    Front ZC-821
    Rear ZC-825 (deep dish)
    ZC-822 2.15″ 9mm deep front wheels (center)
    it’s perfect for 834B and 870C but really hard to find
    with 2.2″ wheels
    Proline Champion tires were great for RC10 and 834B both. and Losi put the tires in their RPS SE kit with Team Losi Racing logo

  • YZ-834B wheel hub mod

  • #1 front wheel hubs
    there are 2 reasons to write on the wheel hubs. the 1st one is they are hard to find. and the other one is for the case you want to run your Wonder Doggie with modern tires. we still have the problem with getting 2.2″ wheels. but let’s get started this topic with ignoring the wheel issue

    she, the shop owner still has tons of 834B parts. but I didn’t see the left side of the front oneway wheel hubs for years

    so, I bought 2 right ones. and tried to pull the oneway bearing out. then put it back. it was quite easy to do with a hammer and 2 thick books. I got a complete pair now


    The original yellow and 870C wheels had deep offset. but later 2.2″ wheels don’t. I tried to exchanged the right and left wheel hubs. and it worked. but wanted better solution to hold the wheels securely

    the wheel hubs for RC10 and kyosho seemed to be worked.
    but, I didn’t try kyosho’s.

    got this after the step bit job with RC10 wheel hub. I didn’t cut the back end. and didn’t have to. it has gone

    it fits like it was made for this






    and after












    #2 rear wheel hubs
    it’s more simple than the front. the hub was from 870C front

    now my 834B got right thread and look
    and you can see the steering from later Yokomo cars. they are basically same. but work better and easier to find
