I am not using the stock tires and rims that came with my hpi mt2 18ss for the winter im using a set of hpi chrome 5 spoke rims and pro line tires 2.30x3.60 for the street. The rears are rubbing up on the suspension shaft how can i fix this.

i would try and put a thin washer on the face of the hex behind the rim. this may give enough of a shim to clear the tire away from the suspension. you could also use a dremel tool to slightly remove some of the plastic from the suspension arm (which will weaken it slightly) to give you the clearance. my 2 cents, Scott
