Powertrainsavers.com as an option

Just thought that instead of carring extra axles, u-joints, drive shafts, that I could just carry extra fuses.

Don't know if this is viable or not. Just figured that instead of grenading something when something else broke, or ripping something off backing down a hill, it would just be better to bullet proof everything. Then just rely on the fuses.

I'd rather replace a $10 u joint with a hammer and a big socket on the side of the trail every once in a while.


Thanks for the spam though.

Im with Blake. I would rather do repairs. I really dont like the idea of designing something to break. Besides I carry spare driveshafts and it would be no more work to replace a driveshaft than it is to replace one od those fuses.

I think for what it is designed for,(big rigs) it is great. Big rigs break things like ring and pinions, axels and that kind of thing when dumping the clutch and backing up to a dock and hitting it hard.

I would think on soemthing like that would be great. But not for out type of rigs. But who knows? Im sure there was the same talk when things like air lockers came out?

I definitely was not just thinking quick u-joints or drive shafts, i was thinking of the extra damage that is not so easy and only $10. Like, axle shafts, gears, or tranny and t-case. Granted you don't see too much of that but it does happen.

No problem though. I figured if anyone could see good or bad for this in the hardcore world it would be on here. Thanks for the input. I really don't push it hard enough to worry about too much damage anyway.

How many forums and bb's are you gonna post about this worthless shit you shit eating fag? Get the fuck out. Nobody wants your overpriced shit. Over $1200 for a weak link. Are you seriously that fucking stupid? If we wanted a weak link, we would use the $8 bruteforce u joints at autozone. But wait...The fuses that you sell only cost $200 a pop! Worthless spamming peice of shit.

Wow man. You write your Mother emails with those fingers. Not everyone hangs out on every forum, so I ask questions were I can. I guess on this forum that the old saying, " There's no stupid question", just does not apply. Thanks for the insightful outlook on a product I was inquiring about it's off-road usefulness.

The u joint is alrady the fuse.. how am I going to break anything else when the u joint is broken? This product just seems to add one really expensive fuse that has the same function as the original fuse.

theyve already got "fuses". they go in the hub and break before a u joint, at least for the 44. if your blowing 60 shafts enough to need a fuse youve got other issues. what a worthless piece of crap. id rather take out shafts, u joints and the occasional spindle if it happens than dealing with that

fundamentally, a quick and easy trail fix would be great. but that would require making the fuse the weakest link, even weaker than what fails now.

No thanks, I dont want to place a shock load on my expensive gears and locker with a part that is designed to brake and risk breaking the gears and/or locker at the same time. Im with everyone else, I have no issues with replacing a u-joint or axle, etc trail-side.
