Just wondering if i can buy a 2spd and reverse for the Axis? Thanks
maybe a 2 speed but reverse uh uh no way only nitros the got that can run reverse are overdrive st and thunder quake but you could e-mail them or go to your lhs and find out if there is a conversion kit or whatever
would the reverse from the thunder quake fit in the Axis?
no, but I have a problem w/ my duratrax engine. I cant get any gas to the piston know what is up
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.
3-channel Tranmitter?you need a whole 3-channel radio.
i wouldnt take any advice from rockn82.he is a moron.
Is it a direct drop in? what all would i need for the reverse...?
I have a JR XR3 fm 3 channel radio..so i'm good there. Thanks
