RC4WD 1/8  Warn Locking Hubs
Are you all about the fine details? Sadly me neither, but there a lot of people in the scale community where each and every little detail makes all the difference.

RC4WD has offered Warn Manual Locking Hub Wheel Nuts in tenth scale for a long time, now they are offering them in a larger size. RC4WD’s 1/8 version uses M4 locknuts and like the previous version requires the use of a special locking tool for installation. These are CNC machined, officially licensed by Warn, and should be great for adding that final bit of scale realism to your trail machine.

The part number is #Z-S1224, they are priced at $17, and they are available right now. Head over to the Official RC4WD Website for complete details.

Have you ever noticed the wheel nuts for your 8th scale buggy tend to “go missing” a lot at the track? They either go flying off your wheel at 30,000 rpm down the main straight (never to be found again) or one of your racing buddies like to “permanently borrow” them.
