Blech! I was hoping you would use clod axles or something!

So do I still get dibs?

Anxious to see how this one turns out Brad.
Hopefully I can learn a few tips for my Axial based rigs.

Those hold a claw fine. I have them, they just take longer to mount with all those screws & wheel nut cover.

Looks like you're on your way Brad Top notch work and documentation as always I like the lockers, good to see them from a different perspective than on the home page, look solid.

Awesome Fred!! I picked up a set of axles on Monday myself, I'm getting tired of worrying about the TLT ring and pinions and I just feel like I should get with the times.

Great writeup. Cain't wait to see what kind of cool-cat goodies show up on this. Pen and notepad ready.

The new sintered lockers should be way more durable then stock.

The MSD beadlocks are sweet. They look great, they are the perfect weight IMO, the designs are clean and the machine work is flawless.

I'll be running the stock tranny, with the new slipper clutch. I'll probably start out with a home made dig set-up like I'm running now.

Thanks Griz.

I've had the same feeling lately too. I'm still surprised I didn't strip my rear diff at the Mid-West comp.

Yup, the wheels and tires are a tough combo to beat.

The Top Gun wheels are the perfect offset for Axial axles. Overall width with the wheels and tires should be about 10 1/4" wide.

Default Transmission

Time to get the tranny built.

Start by installing the bearings into the tranny case. Assemble the main tranny gear and outdrives, use a dab of thread lock on the screws too. Since I'm going with the new Axial slipper clutch, I had to replace the stock top shaft in the tranny with the new longer version that is included with the slipper clutch kit (Part # AX30414). Install the drive pin into the shaft, slid your metal top gear onto crosspin and install the bearings. Then press the last two bearings into the plastic idler gear.

Now drop the gears into place, lube with the grease supplied in the AX10 kit, and close the transmission up. Then, slide the long M3 screws through the tranny case, and slip the aluminum spacers for the motor plate onto them. Now install the motor plate, use threadlock on these screws too.
