Take Care
if you race and is already a very good driver and seldom crashes hard or never hit anything very hard, then by all means get those lightweight wheel axles but if you hit boards and crashes often then get the steel ones i already bent my two wheel axles which are located in the rear when i spun and chrashes the board now i have to replace all the axles with the steel ones #51094

On the MRE it's a dirrent rear hub the 0H one has the bearing sitting lower in comparison to the regular 0 ...I know cause I had to replace one (yep I bent one) and got the "normal ones" and they were different, so I got the 0H ones from champ.

It's not the "axle" that bends, it's the part that goes on to the dogbone that get's all bent and jacked up ...I was replaceing my front ones only, then started running a 4300 brushless and I guess because of he added torque I literally snapped 2 rear ones off right at the axle part, would be driving around the track, hit a corner and my wheel would fall off with the axle, wheel nut holder and whell nut still attached to it ...so I went to all steel axles all the way around on my 4300 car.

so today 19 turn foam practice my car was almost perfect but a little lose
i was running pro 4 hubs and steel axles up front aluminium rear i managed to bend the rear Axel luckily i had the tamiya steel ones to change to

i was surprised how easily they bend

i definitely shuld have changed them earlier.

besides that the car has been flawless

i wish i got a tamiya for my first car 5 years ago when i started in this hobby

or as a fellow tamiya driver locally said to me you have been bitten. lol

Yup, those MRE Alum Axles bends too easily. Today I bent all 4 axles (and this is my second set!) whooosp!. Steel ones are heavier, i am thinking of replacing it with the Titanum ones, but it is a bit pricey .. Regards
