    On the Axis you can make it like a two speed, The tranny spins and the one way turns with
    the cup as one. The shaft turns with the one way turning the front
    drive differential. Once you hit full throttle the front brake locks
    and the front half of the tranny stops. This causes the speed of the
    rear driveshaft to double making the vehicle go twice as fast. Since
    the vehicles front brakes are locked up the front tires shouldnt move
    right? Well thats where the one way bearing comes into play. It will
    allow the front driveshaft to spin freely until you come off of full
    throttle. Thats also why its important to get that one way in the
    right way. When you are no longer at full throttle the front brakes
    will unlock and power is transferred to both driveshafts again.

    the thunder quake is the exact same chassis as the axis so yes the two speed and the reverse mods will fit into the axis but your gonna need a 3-channel transmitter.

    Man i have a duratrax axis and its insanly fast!! it can out accelerate my uncle 425 hp dodge challenger!! i just bought a fuel filter for it and it runs so smoothly. i got a lot of other hop ups on it to like a new pipe and a racing head and hot body suspension. but lol im not racing 1/8 scale buggies any more im getting into truck racing like t-maxx or hpi savage so im selling or trading my buggy because i need the cash to get a nitro truck. all my rc needs right now is a manifold becuase i dident secure the last one and it fell out lol and a radio and your set to go!! you can e-mail me at skatetillyadie@hotmial.com well get back to me if your interested!;)
