Uprated halfshafts for standard axle

Postby edwell » 11 Feb 2008, 18:46

Found this http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280190573731 while looking for a mata axle on German ebay. He appears to be offering a service whereby he refubs and strengthens you half shafts for the princly sum of 99 Euros. am i right in thinking the Kaddet C axle is the same as the standard chevette one? If so might be of interest to poeple running a standard axle.

The part he strengthens is the shaft inside the torque tube not the half shafts. You also have to send him on your one as exchange or you can pay extra and he will send one ready made.

I'm dubious about how this could be a real part failure :?

However I've seen talk on a gemini board about the same kind of strengthing.

could be what happens if the torque tube snaps?

is there a history of twisting the shafts of the standard axle.

This is a well known mod for uprating but I would do this in conjunction with fitting a steel torque tube if alloy one fitted.

It's not a matter of just welding a tube on but you also place sleeves on the inner section first then slide the sleeve over, welding to finish.

Also available from Risse Motorsport in Germany.
