Calmini Axles

I am curious if anyone is running the Calmini axles. I don't want to hear from any vendors saying their crap and pushing their stuff instead. I want a honest opinion from a consumer. I have busted a few stock axles, but it took a lot of abuse to do it. I think these Calmini axles are suppose to be thirty percent stronger. I am thinking that might be the difference between a broke axle and not a broken axle. Plus the price ain't bad. Don't anyone tell me AIN'T, ain't a word! Because it is here in Texas ;^)

Re: Calmini Axles

Do you mean the Trail Tough or Spidertrax axles? I havent seen any stronger axles from Calmini, do you have a link to them?

Re: Calmini Axles

I spoke with Chris at Clamini just this last Friday. They are pushing back the release date to insure enuff product testing is done, then they have to make enuff so they won't be backordered when they hit the street for sale.

They are 4140 chromemoly. I plan on going with those, and the price is decent. If they are made to the same quality as the other Calmini products I've owned or installed, I'm sure they will be good.

Re: Calmini Axles

I am responding to the last three reponses:
lojones: I saw them in a 4wd mag advertisement
bigbearzuk: That is funny I heard the same thing about Califorians. Isn't bigbear close to San Fransico :^)
You know why us Texans wear our pants tucked in our boots? So we have a place to put the sheeps legs while we try to push the out of the hay loft. Baaaa your not my daddy?
Yankee Tim: Thanks, I plan on doing the same.
