Sooo.....

Do you know or could you find out what the hardness spec. is using the Rockwell scale?

Thanks

Hi Bob, I know the spec but I cant release any tech info. If he can test the metal and harden it for you thats pretty cool he knows what he's doing.

I understand Chris no big deal. :-(

Yeah he has been a Machinists for many years has a bridge port mill in his basment along with a few lathes. Maybe I can get him to make me some parts. hehe.

Anyway he said he has an idea of what ballpark they might be in. Just thought I'd ask.

Thanks anyway

bob

Well Chris I got my axles back from my brother. He said he thought they were very strong at 45 to 50 Rockwells. Had them in for a day ran 4 batterys thru them with no problems. So I guess I got a good set.

Any official release date for the dig unit? Would like to know if I should hold off buying a new steering servo for a couple more weeks so that I will have money when the dig unit does come out.

Default ITS OFFICiAL

My venom creeper sucks iv broke to many stupid parts
(4) Stub axles
(2) Main axles in front
(2) C hubs
(4) Him links
(ALL) The stock axle, drive shaft, pins
(1) Front locker
(1) front skid plate

I understand that things can be over heat treated no big deal but it should but up to venom to fix these problems not the consumer

Im only joking about my creeper sucking WHEN its not broke ITS THE SHIT driving circles around AXIALS

wow thats a lot of carnage. what motor are you running in that thing? I have a 35t warrior with a 3c lipo and the only thing i've "broken" is the pin that connects the driveshaft to the CVD.... that decided to slide itself out... contact venom and see what they will do for you. For a lot of people here they have been replacing the parts.

Whats the problem with your remote locker setup? For mine, I had to add a spring that would push the locker in and then I setup the servo to pull the locker out and I have yet to have a problem with my setup.
