Default Bruiser front axle conversion

I need to get some C's and knuckles on a bruiser axle...Other than the Rummy mods, (they are out of stock), are there any other good mods?
What is the case composition?..can I braze steel C's to it?

Just in my personal experience with them, I would put a torch anywhere near them. I have had them warp just from being powder coated.

Simple truth in the matter is, the axles were made out of a fairly shitastic pot metal...I have had housings in the past literally crumble on me. Your best bet would be to make your own Cs out of aluminum. 5150Rock (Dustin) and Obijuan (Matt) have both done it before.

BTW, I have purchased Nick's axle biz from him... I am in the process of obtaining all the CAD drawings. Once I have them, I have to talk with the supplier who made the C's about having another run of them done. I know I need a minimal order of 50.

I just got the plans from Nick today and I got some info on the ordering process from the supplier. Only issue I see is I have to buy a minimum of 50 and they arent exactly cheap so I will most likely have to do a pre-order so I have the funds up front in order to place the order. I will keep you advised.
