Has anyone used their axles/parts? I see them on eBay and I'm wondering if they're any good.

Are you talking about the HR items? FYI, The ones listed in the store are the wide version. I have heard mixed reviews on HR in general. Their is a thread in here that talked about the differences between these and the Integy versions. I will see if I can find it.

Jeffs right the tubes that don't have the "bump" on the tube are for longer axle shafts. Although I think they might come with them? But that leads to getting longer steering links also. I normally run the HR aluminum tubes on my trucks, it's a must to take the putter ears off and put Loctite on them. You will thank yourself later. Lose one of their screws it's a real bear!

Thanks. I just saw on eBay that they had what looked to be one piece gear cases and axle shafts at pretty low prices. But if they're substandard... I see now that they say Hot Racing on them, I just saw the ebay seller name.

I'm fairly certain those are locked too. Special meal gears also.

And by locked, I'm guessing you mean no differential action; pretty much a straight axle.
