Molded Insert & Cross Shaft Set (3) by Team Durango
This product was added to our catalog on January 14, 2014.
This is an optional Team Durango Molded Insert and Cross Shaft Set. These Team Durango molded cross shafts fit the differentials in all Team Durango 1/8th scale models. They replace the steel cross shafts and inserts in the differential, offering a huge reduction in weight over the steel parts; the molded parts are 80% lighter than the steel parts they replace, giving a total weight saving of 22.2g per vehicle.
The cross shafts have been extensively tested by the Team Durango pro team who found an increase in acceleration and breaking performance due to a reduction in the rotating mass of the transmission. The testing has shown that there is no detrimental effect in durability when using these molded parts. Pro driver Ryan Lutz says, "It is unbelievable the difference these parts make. The first time I ran these parts I was amazed by the extra acceleration from my DNX408."
Supplied in a set of 3, this package features enough parts to replace the cross shafts and differential inserts in the front, center and rear differential.
Note: These lightweight cross shafts also fit many other manufacturers differentials. The cross shafts are 3.5mm in diameter, and 27mm in length.
