Locked Up RC is happy to present our solution for those that are looking for a stronger, reasonably priced rear axle shaft for their HPI Wheely King.
OT shafts offer several improvements over stock 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. We thread the end of the shaft several extra turns vs stock. So if you are trying to narrow up your rig with narrow hex hubs and our .185 SLW hubs you can run them with less or no washers behind your wheel nuts.
3. No "hat" near the tangs to more easily pass through axle tubes and past mounting hardware (like Gunnar tubes and CMS kit hardware).
To run these shafts you MUST be running our Wheely King Straight Axle Adapters (lock outs)
These will NOT work with stock knuckles & chubs.
You can expect a direct slide in fit with stock lockers but these will be tight with FI spools because FI spools are tight with everything!
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.
