Super strong, super rigid, super bling - the original Titanium shaft. Arrma tough Plus!
These axles are a step change from other options. With the stock 3.5mm cross pin always being the weak link, there was only one way to fix the problem: 4mm cross pin. This latest version is also thicker along the length making them more bend resistant.
A 4mm pin is 50% stronger than a 3.5mm pin.
In order to use 4mm pins, the drive cups also need to be upgraded. These upgraded cups are included and supplied in hardened steel. The last batch had a problem - this is now fully resolved.
Scorched Parts drive shafts are made from ti-6al-4v grade Titanium with super durable tempered high carbon steel cross pins. 40% lighter than similarly sized steel shaft. The shaft is tapered at the ends to allow a carefully tailored fit at full steering lock and full suspension travel.
Our 8s shafts were designed to take a huge 50% increase in load over the stock shafts and massively increase stiffness. We developed the shape and fine detail using Finite Element Analysis to test strength in 3D CAD.
The kit includes replacement, oversize CVD barrels and CVD pins, upgrades to increase surface contact area and reduce wear rate.
The cosmetic finish of the cups will vary from some of the pictures.
Please be aware that highly loaded titanium CVD's will wear faster than hardened steel parts. Lubrication and cleaning will help parts last longer
We know our shafts are a step stronger than stock shafts, but we cannot and do not guarantee that they are unbreakable. We also cannot guarantee against wear and tear. If you run full punch with an upgraded power system, land big jumps on power, never clean or lube the cv joints, we can guarantee you will break shafts, any shafts, like matchsticks. This is the nature of Arrma 8s trucks.
