I don't consider anything a weak spot, not when I'm behind the wheel!
I just like destroying shiz and this is my rig for just that.

Got my VP vvd V2 (5mm) stub shafts today. Can't wait to get my new rotor so I can put them thru there paces!
Next will prolly be some lockedup rc OT shafts for the rear, once they come out. I should be pretty solid then.
Are you running normal rotation (rear ring gear on left) or reverse (rear ring gear on right)? I know theoretically it shouldn't matter.....

Im glad I got mine after r&d! I installed them last weekend and so far so good. No shims needed, the mesh is perfect and there is zero play in the output shaft. Running 1/8th scale brushless and that bearing was for sure the weakest link on my setup. Thanks for making these available!

Kind-a like Big Foot !! - no pic - isn't real !!
@ least my housing is nice & clean

still the BEST way to go - i know the stock bearing wouldn't last half as long,
ordering another one ASAP - THX Delux

Could this mod be done to Vanquish Aluminum ar60 housings?

I mean it'd be easier for VP to fix, but you always have the best ideas, products and services

Pretty sure I read that the material was too thin but I could be wrong.

I could, the problem is liability. When I am making only a couple of dollars on a mod that could potentially ruin your housing, its just not worth the risk. Sorry.

Checked your site and it lists the AR60 as out of stock. Any idea when you expect to have more?

Sorry guys, I dont know what is going on. I have had housings on order for almost 3 weeks. I was told I would have them last week and nothing.

No matter what, I will have some for sale and on my website on Friday, at the latest.

Thanks for being patient.

Now in stock and shipping as promised!

I have SCX housings with the mod.....

I have AR60/Wraith housings with the mod....

And now, I have Axial EXO housings/bulkheads with this mod! The EXO housing could really help out the guys running an EXO front end on their crawlers. I only have a couple to see how they go. If they are something you guys want, its something I can keep in stock.

Subscribing for future reference.

My yeti will definitely need this. .
I'm hoping the Yeti front housing will be the same as the Exo.

Hopefully it is. I bet all the Yeti guys and even the WREXO guys would really benefit from this mod.
