Locked Up RC is happy to present our solution for those that are looking for a stronger, reasonably priced, replacement rear axle shaft for their Vaterra Ascender.
OT shafts offer several improvements over the stock Ascender shafts:
1. Torsional tensile strength rating of over 160in/lbs*. That is over 33% more than a typical stock shaft, which suffers destruction in the 120in/lb range.
2. Precision milled tangs act as the stop for your shaft (preventing it from going to far into the housing), so no need for the silver spacer which wears out over time.
3. You can run "normal" wheel hexes and pins with the shafts. No more special hexes or set screws needed.
Even with these improvements these are a direct replacement requiring little to no modifications to a stock vehicle.
You can expect a direct slide in fit with stock and most aftermarket lockers.
If your shafts are a tight fit with your locker, we suggest using our Copper Anti Sieze Grease
This will help with shaft removal after extended periods of use.
-2x 4mm nuts
-2x 2x10mm HD pins
No more spacer:
