As for the new nova engines not even the drivers know what they are BECAUSE THEY CAN'T OPEN THEM. So in essence I think it ALL comes down to the most well prepared, best strategy,and the best part number that every racer wants and THAT PART NUMBER IS :
SKILLS 101
well put

Do you know if he is using light transmission parts as well (wheel axles, shafts, etc.)?

Thanks for your feedback! Regards, Stefan
Yes.

@Ybslow

Ok, I think I know who supplied Swauger with the trick transmission parts

Some questions:

From which material are your wheel axles made? Steel, Aluminium or Titanium?
You offer the small front layshaft in Ti and Aluminium. What are the pro's and cons?
Do I have to expect more wear on the light wheel axles and the front and rear layshafts? Any durability issues?

Thanks and regards, Stefan

The wheel axles we offer at this time are actually stock Mugen ones that we cut 8 slots inot each one and they save close to 2 grams each. ( Durability is I have only seen one broken and it was a direct hit to the outside board with an exposed axle as the car had lost it's tire due to the wheel pin spinning the plastic hub from the inner wheel.

The front/mid layshaft in titanium is as durable as the steel and weighs about 6 or 7 grams as compared to the steel one weighing 11 or 12).

The aluminum midshaft weighs 3 grams. (These will wear out at the bearing locations over a season worth of racing and become a pain in the arse to get out of the car if unattended for awhile). But very light.

Magnesium Pulley adapters are subject to getting bent if a direct hit is applied on the side belt locations, but will survive the race but look wobbly if hit. These weigh 1.5 grams each as compared to 5 or 6 grams each on the stock ones.

Titanium 2-speed shaft weighs 11 or 12 grams as compared to the stock steel shaft at 26 grams. (Durability seems to be about the same as steel and because the one-way bearing rides on the 2 speed adapter(steel) does not seem to be a wear issue.

All of these weights are approximate the best I can remember them.

Ybslow,

Thanks a lot for the speedy and comprehensive follow-up, much appreciated!
I tried a "Hong-Kong" 2speed titanium shaft once and it wore out pretty fast at the cut-in for the clip (developing side to side play of the shaft). Seems like I need to buy some higher quality stuff...

Its about a 15 min drive from the track back up the mountains. It was worth the drive.
