Default Xtra Speed Axles

What is everybodyís experience with xtra speed axle housings? Iím looking to put a set on my trx-4 Bronco and iíve heard of some people having trouble with the locking differentials after installing these. Also how bad is the install? Iím new to all of this and this will be my first time dealing with axles. Thanks in advance for the input!

I have a fleabay China special $20 alloy axle housing up front on my Trx. It was a super easy install. Not one issue with it and everything still working great. Don't know anything about the ones you're talking about tho. Remember when using the search on this forum to always use advanced search. From what I remember allot of people stay clear of anything Xtra Speed. Good luck brother!

Take a look at the Yeah Racing housings. I have used both. The Yeah Racing are about the same price as that Xtra Speed but are better quality.

The lockers bound up in my xtra speed axles. The pivot that switches from locked to unlocked did not move freely. Tried to scrape some paint out to no avail. I ended up using those axles with spools and they were fine. I'm sure they will work with a bit of fiddling, I just lost patience with it.

The Yeah titanium axles worked fine with the lockers.

If you think the Yeah racing axles are any better quality than Xtra speed, you've been fooled by branding because I can almost guarantee you they are made in the same factory in china.

I read a review that showed the yeah racing snap, which makes me a little hesitant to buy theirs..haven't heard anything bad about xtra..yet.

I'm just looking to get some weight up front..and everything is so expensive, figured this might be good / good up better than plastic on adding additional brass. Metal axle vs plastic.

A YR TRX4 axle snapped? I canít even imagine what one would have to do to accomplish that.

I have both on sets on different trx4s. The yeah racing fit and finish is superior by far, the xtra speed needed some filing and shimming where I havenít had to shim before to get them running smoothly but some people get lucky and didnít need much work. I wasnít one of them.

Iíd recommend the YR before the xtra speed from my experiences.

Lockedup-rc has trx4 axles made by devil-rc, they are $32-33.

I have no experience with the product, but I get a lot of stuff from lockedup-rc, and it’s good quality.
