    wow, those axles look almost IDENTICAL to RC4WD raptors... it's nice to see someone isn't forgeting the supers...

    granted, i kind of wish the would maybe based them more off of the g-made clod-style axles....

      i thought the same thing about the raptors.

      yeah hopefully this will help more people get involved in the supers, and make more companies start producing more rtr super trucks.

                Yes and no. Jugg/TXT axles are very similar, but the trucks themselves are very different. Juggs were leaf sprung, and had more of a ladder style frame with a sweet hardbody. The TXT was a more of a plate chassis cut to look like a tube frame, with cantilevered four link suspension and a lexan body.

                      I was focused buddy... just not on the thread

                      Yes it does, and looks like a good option to the clod. Given XTMs rep for durable parts this could be good.

                        hehe

                        now aren't TXT and clod internals almost the same, too?

                          Yes and no. The inner shafts are the same, the outter shafts are really close with the clods being just a hair shorter. Now on the gearing that is where things get very different. Clods are a transaxle so the trans and axle are one unit. Clods just have a stack of 32 pitch gears that act as a trans and a ring gear. The TXT is a top loader axle, so the pinion comes in and runs a set of bevel gears which drives the ring gear.
