Want to take performance to a higher level? Lean up your B5 or B5M with ProTek R/C Titanium Axles.

The ProTek R/C Titanium Axles are CNC machined to near-exact tolerances from high-quality domestic 6AL-4V (Grade 5) titanium alloy material and polished to a brilliant finish. The 6AL-4V titanium features one of the highest strength-to-density ratios of all materials making it extremely strong and lightweight, without any sacrifices. Additionally, titanium is heat tolerant, corrosion resistant and looks damn good.

Weighing only 3.5 grams per axle, compared to 6.5 grams per steel axle, these titanium axles drop a combined 6 grams of rotating mass from the driveline. For the stock racer, these axles help decrease motor fatigue, boost efficiency and reduce overall weight.

So… want to take performance to a higher level? Lean up your B5 or B5M with ProTek R/C Titanium Axles.

Features:
  • CNC Machined Construction
    High-Quality 6AL-4V Titanium Alloy
    Reduced Rotating Mass
    Fits B5 & B5M Buggies
    Steel Rear Axle Weight: 6.5g
    Titanium Rear Axle Weight: 3.5g
    Made in the U.S.A.


Notes:
The axles will accept the +4mm rear pivot width with the ASC9925 Clamping Hex.
The axles will also accept the MIP Puck system.

Mine are showing some pin wear. However, they've held up great.

Any idea on the cost for the Factory Lite chassis? I can have my stock ones milled but the place willing to do it wants $60 per chassis.

Dude, unlike me you are really fast. You also run mod. They will last me a lifetime if you're getting acceptable wear.

I've been back at this since November now, and in January bumped down to 17.5 for some closer racing. I've enjoyed it, but am now thinking of building a 2nd b5m for mod racing again, I miss the horsepower!

Looking to run my b5m on outdoors track. Medium to large format. 1/8 buggy track. Any suggestions on the performance of this kit on outdoors clay tracks? I also have the b5 rear conversion kit in case that rear configuration does better. I currently have a tekin rsx with 7.5 tekin motor and shorty pack. Also have a spare tekin rs gen 2 esc that id have to get a different motor for cuz the 8.5 motor limit.

I just ordered a b5m and some spares and gear diffs.. I'm going to use gear diffs since I'm not comfortable building and adjusting ball diffs.

is there anything I need to know about the gear diffs? where to start with oil? any tips would be great

Need more info. You really see the advantages of the gear diff when traction is high. Temp is critical too. When our track is sugared and its hot we use 7k. Springtime before we sugar and temps are lower 2-3k. Winter, ball diff.
