Anyone knows, which company is making/selling these front wheel axles/mounting parts??

I think these were used by many top-drivers in qualifiers in Lostallo.

they look like Serpent Steering hubs with the Axle. the Axle is threaded inside, and the nut retains the wheel. im sure they would have changed to quick release if they did a tire change.

Those look like the picco prototype ones since they are polished. But im not sure and picco never ended up having them on their website. I have been running the smp titanium hard coated stuff for over a year now. They are very light and nice, just expensive. Here is smp's link:

They look like a hassle to change on the track when trying to make lap time.

Thanks for the link. I know they propably don't make my car any faster on the track, but I was just curious.

Why they do not have the axles with nuts also for the rear? I tested with my rear wheels and with 1/8 buggy-nut and it seems that there is enough space..

Serpent has them for the rear. Their os2 axles work on the mugen and are lighter.

They're used for qualifying, not the mains. In a 5 min. qualifier, if you need to change a tire...you're done anyway.

Most of the races I run at have 45 min mains... I run the fixed wheel set up in qual and mains... I run the YBslow ones and it helps keep the car consistent.....

I've heard they keep the wheel running more true, therefore the car more consistant. How do they do that?

Do you think the allumunium lock lever ( the quick release clip ) creates vibrations or wobbles while rotating at high speed ?

Currently I use alluminium cone washer made from kawahara on the wheel axle. I have to use the cone washer because I use kawahara tires.... so far no problems, no come off wheels........ but I notice the wheel axle ( where the bearings sit ) becomes very hot on left side ( my race track going direction is clock wise ).

Ok I got it! I seen some on Ebay for sale but I never had a problem with the stock setting so I never gave them a second look.

Yes it does. You can lower that by cutting off the long end tip and drill some holes in the rest of it.

Two questions.

What parts are needed to convert an MRX4R to an MRX4X?

Has the successor to the MRX4X been announced, or any speculation?
