Is it possible to make the shifts in a 5 bolt pattern instead of six or even leave them undrilled? I have 3 sets of green plastic 5 star wheels and the vanquish adapter pattern obviously won't work and I don't know of a 5 bolt adapter. Thanks and have a great day

I could definitely have a set made up with no bolt pattern the next time I get a batch made. 5 bolt would be more challenging. I can ask my machinist if he doesn't mind modifying the code or doing it manually. Drop me a pm and we can talk about it.

I have to agree...... Knowing what I know generally speaking it takes all new code for just one change. He is going above and beyond here. Great job Brian.

The drill and tap operation is the last step in the program. Not sure if he can do it yet but maybe.

I guess the machinist wasn't in? Its only been almost a month so I assume that you or he can't or won't do it. Thanks for the update.

Hey Phlint,

I did check with the machinist. He may be able to do it in the next batch, or I can just have him leave one out and I can do it myself afterwards. It slipped my mind because the next batch will not be done for a little while. I cant convince him to set the machine up to run 1 set of shifts. If you are not in a hurry and can wait till the next batch I can probably take care of you. If it something you are itching to get your hands on then you'll have to look for another option.

I'm in no hurry, just curious. You can even leave them blank and I can thread them also

You want the 5 holes drilled and not tapped, or you want a shift with no holes at all?

It is most certainly not a problem if you are ok with a Blank set of Shift hubs.

Sending you a PM.

These look like less minimum offset from your originals (I like that) what is min offset on these?
