how to narrow axial axles.
 
I will be starting a 1.9 scaler using a blackfoot body. I have seen other threads on TLT axles, but nothing on Axial's. I was going to use Losi MRC axles, but they seem too small and expensive for thier size.

Thanks in advance

I don't think I have seen any decent ways to narrow the Axial axles to a width anywhere near what a Blackfoot body would require.

here's my method for wheely king axles.
I haven't take apart axial axles to see if you could try the same thing or not.

this makes them 5-5/8" wide. perfect for a blackfoot. axial stubs and knuckles will narrow them up about another 3/4"

Why not MRC? They can be on the cheap side if you search.

Pretty sure you can build them ground up too

axials are already 1/2" wider than tlt's so why not start with tlt's instead?

also, for not much more than a set of axles would cost you you could buy the MRC complete and just add a scale chassis to make your scaler. the blackfoot is really narrow.

this is with narrowed tlt axles:

these have about 1/2" taken out of them.


edit: also, one thing people skip is the scale size of the wheels. when you go that narrow it looks odd (to me) to have nearly a 4" tall tire. seems too narrow and tall to me. the picture above uses reduced tires (they're 1.5 wheels and overall height is about 3.25").
