Axial XR10 Team Driver Tip!

By Axial Staff on Aug 17, 2010

Here is a cool tip for those who like to wrench on things a lot, or just like to run all the same tricks that the Team Drivers use. To help ease the time it takes to separate the axles and gearbox’s, you can cut a small notch in the AX30557 Gear Case Plate.

I highlighted the area to cut in GREEN below.

As you can see in this picture, once the gear case plate is installed without the cut it requires the removal of the Axle shafts before you can pull the Gearbox assembly away from the axle.

Once you remove that area of the gear case plate, you can see below the only steps required to remove the gearbox from the axle while the axle can still stay assembled. You can even leave the entire axle mounted to the XR10 chassis.

Hope this helps with the assembly of the axles. This trick with the notch in the gear case plate will work on the front and rear XR10 axle. Feel free to ask questions.

    Just sucks we need to do this mod to replace the bearings everytime they let loose.. Sucks having to depend on those little boogers to hold up.
