    What are the insides?

    What did you do to make that axle? The insides? I see it's two front axle covers, but, how did you make the inside happen? Any pics or tips would be awesome. Thanks!

    I know Medic said Overkill was for 'pushin & pullin', but heres something for inspiration to put on the back, instead of a boring old flat bed etc. Just think of all the logging/hauling videos :cool:

    Btw, is it just me or is the red LED behind Overkill's front radiator grill annoying in a 'pulls you out of the scale fantasy' kind way? Hmmm, I think I need to get our more ;)

    It was for the snowblower. The rx8 smoked out during the first test.

    Axles ??

    I'm just reading this through & your the second person to have asked about how DJ did the middle axle. If it hasn't been answered, can someone please post it? I'd love to know too.

    Axle ?

    Hay DJ [MENTION=1918]RCEngineer[/MENTION], have you or could you, make a instructional video of how to make an axle like the center axle on HD Overkill? The technique you used to make a center axle (like on HD Overkill), could that technique be used to make a center axle for a 6X6 Wraith? Wasn't sure if the pumpkin being off center would cause a problem, that & to be honest, not exactly sure how you made Overkill's center axle.

    Hey Guys,

    Greenie made a tutorial on how to do this with pics. You can find it here: how to make middle axle

    Should be possible with the wraith axles, just have to flip the shell over so that the pumpkins meet up

    Hey yeah Greenie's looks great and I think there are pics in this thread. As far as a wraith you cannot with out lots of mods as its not a split axle it had a diff cover so you would have to try your luck at cutting to cases down the middle OR making a special diff cup.
