I thought about the ti shafts, but 2 people have already told me their ti shafts were "twisting", they went back to the stock shafts. I know of one company that's working on hollow steel shafts; hopefully they'll be a little better. If they are, I'll probably get them.
Twisting !!! I do doubt the "Ti" composition cuz this shaft is too light to be Ti.

the axle is a bit longer i.e. the 5mm inner diameter inside the hex is shorter. I think you still can use MTX2 hex provided that you use spacer between hub and hex. and you can use zero offset rim at the same time !

Manticore, Why did you choose to install the small bumper, when the kit includes the front wide bumper? the wide bumper saved me a number of A arms on my MTX-2
