Complete central drive set for extreme high speed running.
The long nose Spool shaft enables the removal of the long, heavy rear shaft and replaces it with a specially shorter, lighter shaft.
Includes front and rear centre drive shafts, centre spool shaft, two drive couplings, two hybrid ceramic bearings and 5 piece spur gear spacers.
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. No cutting, filing or modifying of stock parts required.
The 5 piece spacers are designed to give a few spacing options including for different spur gears. Some may require different spacers. We’ve due to release a spool shim kit soon, so look out for that.
NOTE. We've had a report that the Hobao 'option' motor mount places the spool further forward and makes the front shaft a tight fit. We've not been able to confirm this yet.
Like other drive components, these require degreasing and high strength loctite (including on the drive cup 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!
