Re: How are your TT Double tough shafts holding up?
I would not call them a pos [img]images/graemlins/lame.jpg[/img] for 33's... And Jesus christ get your F'n facts straight, it is not 600 to replace, it is 100 dollars for the birf, and 210 for the shafts, if the shaft broke and you did not want to spend 210, buy the calmini's alloys for 119 (it is not THAT easy to snap um with 33's)
Also the strength of axles depands on where/how you wheel. A guy in Washington on this bord has wheeled thenm for a while and had great results ( I think he is GRW on this board or something?)
I think it would be cheaper for you to run the calmini 4140 inners with the Trail tough birfs, inners-119, birfs-100, that is 438 dollars, then you need to get rear side gears to use on front
An even cheaper route is to use longfield birfs/ with calmini inners, inners-119,longfields-85 (that is what they were when he still sold them but Rat said that rockbuggy supply is taking over). If you could still get um at that price then-408 would be total plus rear side gears to use on front.
I wheel in washington and don't care for rocks, my trails are normally wet/muddy dirt (no traction like calif) I am only running 34/10.5's so either of these setups should hold fine..If I go longfields I would birf ring um'
I think brents setup is a briliant idea. for there purpose they work great.. he started to produce them so that 33's would be run without easy breakage..
