Default Trickle Up Theory (Full scale maxx crawler)

So I was reading 4wd and Suv Magazine when I found an interesting article on overkill engineerings atomic axles. I don't know where they got the idea for their axles but they look suspiciously like they got their roots from a locked out maxx crawler. They don't have any pics that they I can post so here's the link.
http://www.overkilleng.com. I think the trickle down theory has reversed.

Those are pretty cool but if I were going to buy some prebuilt axles for a crawler I would go with the Dynatrack Pro Rock Dana 60 but all in all, those Atomic axles are pretty cool.

pretty sweet if i may say... only prob i see is the extra ujoints and the extra angles on the steering u joints and also the inconstant velocity you get with all thoes u joints...

Theres a thread on pirate4x4 about them.

The price tag is pretty shocking on them as well. I forget how much though.

i saw those today in 4wd and maxx imediately came to my mind. It looks like they are noticing the rc crawlers! Those axles look really cool but i could never afford them.
