Has anyone tried using 17mm to 14mm WHEEL ADAPTER HEX HUBS on their 1/8 buggy to allow them to use a bigger truggy style wheel/tire set up ... and if so how did it handle?

Neil linked me some ebay ones here when I asked the same question: http://rc-monster.com/forum/showpost.php?p=194697&postcount=32

There are lots of 17mm wheels out there these days, including wide offset 17mm wheels typically designed for truggies. No sense in downgrading to 14mm IMO.

truggy standard these days are 17mm hubs. everyone makes wheels for 17mm hubs

But are they worth putting on a buggy;ie does it give better handling, better traction on a dirt track, etc. ?

truggy tires on buggy???? no way. they might even rub the chassis when turning. worse acceleration as buggies have taller gearing than truggies as buggies have small wheels.
