At the moment I'm using the Capricorn wheel axles on my NT1 and the clamping ring has all the space to stay in. They are very similar to the Velox' ones in the design.
The steering block of the NT1 is 12 mm large (4mm for each ball bearing and 4mm of space between them).
Capricorn's wheel axles have a 13.5 distance to allow to set the offset of the car. It means that there are 1,5mm to fill with some shims.

Can you please take some measure on you Velox?

Thank you Alex

The V10 wheelaxles are 13.8-14.0 and they will fit the NT1 without a problem. You can also use the NT1 driveshafts with the V10 wheelaxle without a problem.
I already checked it when the V10 was released incase of the V10 wheelaxles being cheaper as the Capricorn one's but I decided to stick with the original stuff.
But the aluminum wheelaxles are pretty interesting, do hope the hardcoating is of good quality(not questioning Shepherd, but I've seen some very bad coatings and some very good one's, Hudy Tooling) because once that wears off the cvd pinhole will wear out in no time.

Standard wheel axle 6.6g! So the aluminum should be 60% less (read Shepherd home page) that means 2.7-3g in theory ...

Thank you all for the infos

I think I'm going to buy some couple of this aluminium wheel axles and using it with the original xray's driveshafts.

Thx

Niko

The brake spacing out of the box is tight. You can either:

Sand the pads slightly to increase clearance, this will require the pads to 'break in' though and braking power will be decreased until they 'run in'

Run the car for a few tanks working the brakes until they loosen up.

Either way when the brakes are 'run in' you'll only need about 30-35% travel. The brakes on the V10 are great and do not wear. You will have the same stopping power on the first lap and the last lap.

I wore my breaks in. I ran about 2-3 tanks during the first few practice sessions.

Steel pinions last longer in any brand of car. Hardened will make your clutch bell lighter and pick up revs faster (less momentum).

Kindest regards,
Lars.
