There probably isn't much reduction in the trans because there's already a 2:1 reduction in the portals. In my Gen7, those portals made the truck ridiculously slow because of all the reduction.

The axle housing is actually multiple pieces. I have a set from testing, and the c-hubs are indeed a separate piece on each end.

I thought the portals bolted on but after looking at a close up they dont the housings are one piece and the knuckles are mold3d in kinda sucks if they used a simmiler design on there gen 7 and maybe the everest 10 it would be better for the aftermarket to jump on board but being a one modle part right now dosent open the door verywide for potential sales of aftermarket parts i was realy hoping for.some overlap parts just to get better aftermarket suport

There's some good photos of the portals with the metal upgrade parts on them in the Gen8 facebook group. The engineers/designers have them on their test rigs & have been showing up at local crawls in AZ. According to Redcat, the upgrade parts will be in stock when the trucks are released for sale.

Can anyone give me a hex to hex measurement of these axles. I might be interested in a set of these for another project I'm working on.

Please and thank you.

If I remember correctly, when I measured them they were 195mm.

Thank you! Seems like they're a little wider than I thought.
