the more weight you have at the axles better off you are. i dont know how you did it but congrats. i had a hard enough time getting the four gears into the diff housing and bolting it shut...

I have a quick question for a friend of mine with a TLT. He keeps breaking the stub shafts, right where the threads end. Is there an updated list of other, stronger shafts that'll work? Thanks in advance

Please, no flaming, and yes i did use the search. I am going to start a 6x6 project with TLT axles. I know you can use the two like cases for the middle axle, but does anyone have pictures of how they did it?

Found this by searching through the general crawlers section for "6x6". And as I figured, it's a link that goes to Scale 4x4

no problem. you'll begin to see a pattern as to where stuff is generally located. 6x6s and 8x8s usually fall under General or the scale section.

I kept breaking mine at the other end. I wound up getting the CVD's. Yeah they may be a little pricey. But they pay for themselves in the long run. When (if) you get the cvd's, they come with 4 new bearings to replace what's in your knuckles.

good luck

That looks like a lot of work. I've just swapped the stock dogbones for ones from an old Kyosho Raider in my "don't use that anymore" pile. I installed the dogbones, layed out the suspension, and lengthened the rest of the stock links with 6/32 allthread. (You can get 3 ft sections of the 6/32 allthread @ Home Depot for under $3)
I would suggest covering the bottom links with alum or brass tubing. I left the others raw, they don't touch the ground or bind on anything.

Take it from my experience. After breaking several stub shafts, I finally switched over to the much more RELIABLE cvd's from RCP. They are worth every penny. If you plan to compete with your rig, get the cvd's.

Good luck & happy crawling.

The bearing size is 5x11x4. You will need 6 for each axle. Just replaced the ones on the axles (4). I forgot the output shaft (2):-( Oh well they'll have to wait for another day. RCP has the bearings for $.99 each. You can't go wrong.

Also if you get the cvd's they come with (4) bearings to replace the bushings in the knuckles.

"For the axles, first ditch the bumpers, they ruin your approach angle, and take away from under axle clearance. Then move the steering links above the steering arms. Next move the upper links to the back of the axle, and the lower links to the top to remove clutter under the axle. You will need to buy some longer screws and do some shaving or some shimming. I didn't have a dremel at the time, so I shimmed. Please note that doing this mod will extend out your wheelbase and you will have to run the 96mm link on the bottom and the 108mm link on top):"
Does anyone know the wheelbase after doing this mod? what's the length increase compare to original?
Can I still using stock shocks?
Thanx!

I'm about 67.4% sure that TLT R&P's are the same in the Hi-Lifts

I haven't had a set of Hi-Lift axles in my hands...

67.4, I was hoping for better odds, but I ll take it.
I am hoping so, just blow the middle axle out of my duck. I got tons of TLT gears. I will tear it down this weekend and post back up.

Yes they'll work. Only difference would be the hole for the diff locking set screw.
