Wider, Smoother Axles

RC Car Action - - HOW TO -

The Gen2 has a lot more metal in it than ex­pected for the price. Metal ring and pin­ion gears are tucked into the axle hous­ings, and steel univer­sal joints out­fit the fat tele­scop­ing shafts that join the axles to the trans­mis­sion. Alu­minum C-hubs are fit­ted up front, with steel Cv-style joints con­tribut­ing to smooth power de­liv­ery. The Gen2 uses the same axles as the ECX Dooms­day, which boost the truck’s width from 177mm to 196mm—that’s more than half an inch, which is a big jump for a 1/12-scale truck. The axles also have smoother hous­ings to help slide over ob­sta­cles.

The Gen2 axles boost width by 19mm, and have fewer edges to grab ob­sta­cles com­pared to the first-gen parts.
