Default VP modded knuckles for 8mm stub shafts

I just realized I never put this in here...

You just cannot question the superiority of the 8mm stub shaft design.

People have always been interested in the 8mm shafts but loose interest quickly when they figure out they need a hub system they dont understand and then they need to run Dlux knuckles on top of that. Some dont want or understand the Dlux knuckles. I am good with that.

Now that I have made a simple way to get a 12mm hex on the 8mm shafts, the only excuse I could see for not upgrading to the 8mm shaft was the knuckle. Consider this one checked off also!

I am now making modded Vanquish Wraith knuckles that fit the 8mm shafts.

You can simply put the 8mm stub shafts on an Axial inner shaft, add these knuckles and then top it off with my 0 offset hubs, Delrin hubs or the new 12mm hex and a SLW style hub and youre off to the races.

One huge benefit to the 8mm shaft and my 0 offset hubs is that you can run about 1/4" narrower per side than with a Axial stub shaft and Vanquish 225 hubs. So, a great way to get narrower if you need it while getting all the stronger parts at the same time.

Other benefits of the 8mm stub shaft:
8mm stub shaft vs. the common 3.5mm minor diameter Axial shaft. The strength of the 8mm shaft is unmatched.
2.5mm hex pin vs. the 2mm Axial hex pin
Ability to not run a wheel nut, never having to worry about loose wheel nuts ever again.
If using the 0 offset hubs or delrin hubs the hex pin is in double sheer. This also makes it stronger and you can also use the center screw in the axle shaft so you never loose a hex pin again.

Are you offering Wraith length universals with the 8mm stubs to pair with these?

Yep, sure am. I just have not gotten around to putting them on my site yet. If you want this option, PM me.

I also have other cool options coming for this same purpose!
