Default Axle Question

I was just looking at the pinion yokes on my X-Factor axles and they are different lengths. Is it supposed to be this way? I got the axles of eBay so I donít have the instructions and didnít build the them.

I don't know Neo!
I have never noticed the pinions being different lengths. That seems odd, as both of the axles are identical(I think).

You missed the get together this weekend.

Yea to bad I missed the breakfast and crawl. I was at DU I think, getting help from the machinist there making some pillow blocks for my schools FIRST robotics competition. How did you find the spot under the bridge? Also I measured the yokes on my axles and they are: 24.5mm with a 7mm flat spot and 23.5mm with a 6mm flat. I really hope I didnít get cheated. BT I have been trying to register on the Global Hobbies X-Factor forum but I keep getting an error, do you know of anyone else who has gotten this problem? Finally Dirk are you Digler Factor on RCMT?

The Global site is running for me, but if you have AOL you might be catching problems.

Could be because I have CompuServe which is owned by AOL.

I checked my pinions and they are slightly different, a few thou. I have yet to experience any problems because of it. The OEM drive shafts never had trouble being bolted on. I do have to mod the Maxx slider yoke to slide on a little farther. This is needed because the edge distance for the hole through the pinion wouldn't be enough for long term operation.

Thanks IBCRUSN I feel better now. Is the longer one in the rear or front?

They are both in a parts bag right now. If I recall I think the longer one was in the rear. Either way it shouldn't matter.
