Now with TRIDENT shaft option!
Complete central drive set for extreme high speed running. The long nose Spool shaft enables the removal of the long shaft that can be prone to vibration and replaces it with a shorter shaft.
Includes front and rear centre 114mm drive shafts, centre spool shaft, two drive couplings, two hybrid ceramic bearings and 4 piece spur gear spacers.
TRIDENT high speed ball bearing shaft option includes special front shaft, cup and bearings
Now with updated cup type that is 50% stronger and has better connection to the shaft.
With unique 6mm drive cups the long nose spool is a fully machined solid 10mm shaft, not just a plain 8mm shaft with a cheap spacer. The spool centre portion is 8mm diameter to take standard 8mm bore spur gears (NOT INCLUDED).
Our renown titanium dog bone shafts have been developed over 2 years with some of the fastest builders in the world using them. These are fully machined shafts with the main diameter tuned to 7mm diameter to save weight - again, it’s not just a plain 8mm bar or a part from ebay. Our specially sourced pins are top quality hardened carbon steel, not just stock dowels. A developed and proven product.
This is a drop in solution, however, chassis braces and / or servo mount (esp on Talion) may need filing down to clear the shafts.
The 4 piece spacers are designed to give a few spacing options including for Arrma or Saga spur gears. Other spur gears may be different widths and may require different spacers.
Like other drive components, these require degreasing and high strength loctite (including in the drive cup main bore) if you want them to stay together.
Bearings require oiling before use. Some bearings have been pre oiled by our supplier. The oil is a little thick for our liking, so we clean and re-oil for our own builds. Check out our precision oil applicator too!
