Does any body know where to buy K Factory light weight two speed shafts. We have been having problems with some other brands where the two speed is locking up.

Thanks all.

I got two different brands from ebay.

Square Ti screw set cost me $40 and I got the GPM set for $30.

The Square screws are definetly of a better quality and grade than the GPM ones and the Square screws are hex head versus the GPM's phillips head. The GPM ones look alot like Tamiya Ti screws with that dull grey look.

I think Mugen also sells Ti screw sets.

SpeedtechRC.com and Hardcore Racing are other sources for Ti screws.

There is no titanium 2 speed shaft made that will hold up, it is not the manufacturer but the titanium itself. The real problem is when the needle bearings on the 1st gear hub start rolling across the titatium, it wears out fast. This rubbed off material causes lockups. And aluminum will not work either. A hollowed out shaft would be fine but if you are trying to reduce weight look elsewhere. Titanium is also a bad idea on hingepins for this reason.

you'll find that any titanium lightened shaft will eventually cause you to have a lock up issue. i've had the square shafts, team infinity shafts, and the same thing has always happened. the 1st gear locked up onto the shaft.

use the standard shaft.

It is possible but the shaft would need to be replaced often since its OD would become smaller and smaller and eventually not grab the shaft anymore.

Are there not different grades of Titanium, some manufatures might have a better grade or mixture of alloys with the Ti to increase durability...? I might have missed something, but are we talking about mugen Ti shaft or one of the other after market companies....?

Looking for a suggestion on making a sealed receiver box for the MTX-3. I currently use a ballon around the receiver with all the servo wires but woud like something better. Someone posted a pic of a 35mm camera film canister, but I dont think a Futaba HRS receiver and servo wires will fit in a 35mm canister.

I am looking as well, I would think their would be an aftermarket case, the stock one seems unsafe, what if a car hit you from the side, your $80 receiver can be toast
