I’m giving them a 5, because I know they’ve worked with my previous models just fine, but be forewarned that there will be problems with the new SCX10.3.
Update: I did manage to get them on in a working fashion by bending them outward slightly to avoid squeezing the ring. I spaced the halves opposite of each other, with equal gaps at each connection point, and secured them together with cable ties. Alternately, grinding away some plastic and/or metal would probably work also from the looks of it, but I have not tested that theory at all. It just seems more work than necessary for a questionable outcome.
Originally I only equipped the front wheels with weights but that only helped climbing, not crawling. I noticed that with no weight in the rear wheels, they would lift off the ground when the front end articulated crawling over something. After adding the weights to the rear end, no issues - the truck is planted! Highly recommended.
