Default Xtra Speed axle

Finally received my axle for the front of my rig. Everything mounted to it perfectly. Added 100 grams and ran me $25 shipped.

Nice where did you get it from? How long did it take to get your order?

The fit and finish is excellent. I have the counterpart for my Bomber and those are about 4mm narrower so I had to modify the lockouts and the c hubs to fit. Not on these, everything bolted on perfectly.

I appreciate the fact that it's literally the stock axle - down to just about every little aesthetic detail - except made from aluminum. (Unlike a lot of other ones where they're completely redesigned.

If it's as decent as it looks, then getting that for $25 is a pretty boss deal. (especially compared to the Currie axles)

It took about 2 weeks to show up, but I chose the cheapest shipping option.

Definitely not ferrous. Won't know until I break it I guess, it is a cast piece from the looks of it though.

I'm mostly curious how easily they get scratched and how they slide on the rocks

It just came in and was installed yesterday. There is snow on the ground right now but should melt by the weekend. I will update as soon as I have some time on it.

Pot metal is generally referred to as low quality metal, not a specific type of aluminum or steel.

I like the looks and price but skeptical about strength if indeed being casted. Let us know how durable they are.

I took a gamble and ordered a pair. Price is too good to pass up.

Got my axles today and i must say for 25 bucks a piece, they are nice. Virtually identical in dimensions to the plastic ar44 axle housings. Ordered them from eBay which was done through RCmart in Asia. Took about two weeks to arrive. Everything was threaded and utilized the OE hardware. I'm very happy with the fit. Mated to all my strc aluminum bit fine too.
