I went in to CTM today and for the first time, saw Jack's 300m custom axles...WOW!
I was there to take him the two twisted axles I had just pulled out of my 60 and after seeing how easy it is to twist a spicer axle, I'm gonna figure out a way to get a set...
To Jack at CTM :beer: :beer: :beer: THOSE AXLES ARE BITCHIN!!!!!

Ya that really sucks...what's your point?:flipoff2: I don't see what that has to do with CTM axles.
Um just maybe if the axle or u-joint wouldn't have let go the damage wouldn't have occurd :idea:

I spoke to Jack today. From what I gather, people are paying the premium for the new axles. Going out on a limb, but I thought I heard him say $2800 for all four front axles.....? :eek:

But if you're breaking 60 shafts, it'd be worth it. :D

My thought is this...if you're a competitor that likes the skinny pedal (like I do) you're gonna have a weak link in the spicer axles (i twisted splines on 2 at CalROCS)...yes, $3k is expensive, but imagine if a broken axle kept you from winning just one event or worse, a series. The big bucks then don't look so unaffordable.

As for those pictures of the broken front end from Chris...I have no clue who was driving that jeep when that stuff let go, but if I ever find em.....:D
