    $120 only gets you half way there. You need 2 sets for a complete truck.

    I can buy many Summit shafts before I hit $225.

    I was going to get these a while back but talked to the guys who made these and they said "CVD popping out of the outdrives will depend on your set up. Under normal settings, even slightly wider track widths, we have never experienced cvd popping out of the outdrives. We recommend not too small track width (2-3mm gap between the CVD pin to the end of the outdrive opening) as under hard impacts, you may bend the drive shaft." . So sticking with summit shafts for me.

    I agree. Best looking axle sets I've seen.

    It's a shame they cost so much to produce that they aren't very practical.

    Well they are down to $75/pair... This is what my Summit needs. I've emailed them several times presenting a case to manufacture, or at least some market research into manufacturing them for the Summit but have yet to get any type of reply. If I still had a Revo I'd definately own these already.

    some of the guys here have gotten them very recently, i think it'll be a few weeks before we know anything about them though. i am planning on getting them, but it'll be even longer before i know how they perform since my truck wont be ready for some time yet..

    The price is crazy. I run an auto garage. You can buy a full scale axle for a car or truck for around $49 dollars. LOL They are a thing of beauty though.

    Mine are on the way, should get them soon.

    For anyone wondering about the white, I've asked Ron at TVR. White axles were the first prototypes that were not heat treated to prevent rusting and corrosion. He said that if you want white axles, you can simply spray them in white, and then put them oven at around 70-90 degrees C for 20-30 min. The result will be very good and surprisingly resistant to scratching.

    That mean they could be sprayed with any color? This is getting very interesting! I really hope they're as good as they look!

    I bought the tor-x chassis brace lasted about a month before the carbon fiber mount started to crack from bashing, now using a metal plate with the tor-x rod not worth the shipping price!

    I think dirt will get in, & wear the ball/s, or lock them up. Prob take a quite awhile to wear, but for the price... you can buy several sets of stockers or Summit shafts. They look killer tho......
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    The balls are protected by dust boots. And when they do get worn out, it's easy enough to get spares.

    True, but dirt will eventually get in, and shipping is high for spares. 87GN's point is the only thing im afraid of, thats why im awaiting reviews
