You doing anything to hopefully prevent this:





Was it the torque of the Northstar or something else that caused this?

ya i didn't make mine from aluminum.

that was a bad idea from the start. funny part was i bs'ing with shannon on the lake bed the day before that happened. i predicted that pigs demise. just didn't think it would happen so soon.

LOL..

So is that a custom Tera 60 then since its Alum? A little too far to save weight.

i notice the picture shows the crack goign right through the bolt hole drilled into the support structure for the skidplate. i didnt see that pig explode, but by lookign at the pictiure, it makes my wonder if the housing didnt flex, and split at that bolt hole, causing catastrophic failure, and a humorous picture.

and camo, if you spend more time working on that 60 and less time answering stupid questions on this thread, you might be wheeling that axle before 2005!!

I did like the fact that i could have built a really cool fabricated 9" housing from cro-mo. but oh well
I was wondering about that. A buddy of mine just built a 40-spline 9-inch. Non-gun-drilled 40spline axles, Spool, 4:56, etc...

has about $1300 in it total. It's going under an 880Hp BBC powered tough truck. Them axles are HUMUNGOUS! People really don't get it until they see them in person. It's like someone made an axleshaft out of something about the size of a jeep rollbar.

I suppose that:
1. The ultra-low pinion
2. ARB, not spool = no 40 spline
3. It's a front axle. Easier to startwith an axle that's common as a front axle.

Pretty much sums up why not a 9-inch, eh?

your axle is very impressive- a good example of what can be accomplished with good engineering,good maching,and a little bit of money i think you are correct in assuming the new " weak link"will probably be your pinion stem. there might be another problem area with your axle- your inner 2 piece assembly. splined asseblies like that should be run in a oil bath if possible- running them dry will make the flanks of the splines wear much faster you might be able to eliminate that with a press fit between the inner and outer splines. also the reinforcing web between the "ears" on the yoke has the middle cut out of it to allow internal spline to be broached- this web is there to help keep the "ears" from flexing under severe loading.there are "markings" on the sides of your inner yokes for your 2 piece inner assemblies-are these reworked spicers cut off a o.e.m. axle or are they more 300m machined from bar stock? nice piece of work- next step is to test it on the trails. hopefully sandy is done making parts for you[IMG][img]camo.jpg[/img][/IMG]

the inners will be a very tight press fit. more like heat up the yoke and hammer it on.

the inners are made from 300m bar stock and are alot more massive and beefy than a oem piece.

jason paule has already run a set of yokes in a comp. they survived just fine. actually they withstood a obstacle that broke other stock axles. no problem.

one more thing you might consider doing before you install your new axles- you already know about painting lines down them to allow you to check them for torsional overloading but it is also a good idea to mount them between centers in a lathe and record run-out with dial indicator at each end and on journal for inner axle oil seal. record these dimensions and save.next time you have it apart for repairs or maintenance check them and compare to original specs you might be surprised at what you find!

Okay, I have a question for all the guys that keep asking why he didn't choose a 9 inch... Does anybody in RCAA run a 9? I'm sure there are a few, but not many. 60s far outnumber 9s in any series. The 60 has proven itself over the years to be the most beef for the buck. By starting with a proven-tough component, and pushing the engineering envelope, Camo has build something that SHOULD last a lifetime. But then again, he can break anything!
