One of the best upgrades you can make to any RC vehicle is to reduce weight. JConcepts has been on top of weight saving items since the beginning and are now making those items available to the Team Associated T5M RC stadium truck. A critical point of the axle weight revolves around the front axle itself along with surrounding geometry, hexes and pins. Within the steering block the space is very tight and especially between the 2 front bearings where the front axles rests. The cleverly designed JConcepts axle is quite simple, straight-forward and eliminates 25% weight over a stock steel axle.
The JConcepts front axle design is based around high-quality Titanium construction, and a knurled axle tip for finger control and access. Finger control gives the mechanic a grippy place to rest a finger so the front tire doesn’t rotate easily during changes making the process quicker and with less frustration. The design also eliminates screws and other items which are hard to inspect for issues which limit performance and add additional weight. The light-weight, free spinning design includes axle roll-pins to allow easy assembly of a necessary but (not included) clamping hex adapter.
