Everything will be sold complete, front and rear as stated in post #1. The only exceptions would be if you already have Dlux rear shafts with the big tang or if you buy these and need replacement parts.

I was planning on switching out to a full metal bearing as I was told that they spin more freely?

If anybody has input they want to throw in on what bearing type you would like, let me know. I am not opposed to offering ceramic or anything better as an upgrade also.
You can never go wrong with Boca, Acer, or Avid.

The $1 each Avid's will work just fine for me! I have run them in all my RC's for years, they spec out the same a the $3+ each boca's do. When I ran XRs, and popped several sets of expensive ceramic Boca's, I went to the $1 each Avid's and never broke a bearing again... Go figure...

I only wish your timeframe on these would allow them to be run at ECC :P

Thanks for taking us up a level yet again Erik!

More product innovation and support from one man than from the entire Enroute/Berg company.

You're the man Erik. Beautiful work.

Alright, these are now up for pre order.

As of now, I am planning on getting started in 2-3 weeks and they should start rolling off a week after I start. By doing this pre order, it will ensure that I have most of the parts that I need to get these out the door. Right now, I am waiting on the machinist but I dont think it will be a problem to get parts in the 2-3 weeks.

Please have the understanding that I am 1 guy trying to get these done. I dont mess around and I will work to the point of death to get these out in a timely manner but, some things are beyond my control.

After the initial rush, I plan on having these stocked and shipping as soon as the same day. Until that point, there may be a wait and it will be first come first serve.

Let me know if there are any issues with the ordering, there are a lot of details and I think I got most of them.

Erik, I visited your site and was looking for the option to just buy the berg CF cases. I have been running your tubes for some time now. I would like to get just the cases in the future. Did I miss that option on the site? Or you going to run replacement parts in the future?

Thanks for all the work on axles.

Thanks for the good words.

The Berg version tubes and these tubes are very, very different so they will not interchange from case to case. The only thing that can swap from a Berg to these would be the gears, front and rear shafts, chubs and knuckles. Everything else will come out differently.

Keep the questions coming guys.

One thing I did forget to mention...

Since I am including delrin hubs for the rear axle I took the assumption that most will want to run in the 10.5" range??? I figured that should be pretty close and not deviate too much. If you do want to go wider, you can simply get some of my delrin spacers and be anywhere from 10.5-11" with the widest hub spacer. If you want narrower, you can do a smaller hub that I have on there and that will make you approx 10.25 and be able to go all the way up to 10.75" with the spacers. You may also want the smaller hub if you like running as narrow as possible. The hub spacers just make it easier.

Hopefully that makes sense.

I have worked with others on testing things in the past. Some people ask for feedback, but then don't really want to hear it or don't act on it. I'm not a yes guy... so that kind of chaps my butt.



Erik and I must have communicated 100 times in the last month with questions, suggestions and solutions. He sent me several versions of each part with tweaks that improved the performance each time. He actually listened to the guys he had testing these things and ran them himself. I think the product he will be selling has been thoroughly researched and tested and should be THE new standard for lightweight and durable axles
