      TXTs can be had in a 4:1 flavor IF you can find a set of 4:1 gears.


      Nominally the TXT is a 2:1 ratio.



      Not sure on the Axials, but I would place them in the 1.5 to 2:1 range.

          What are you trying to do with this project?

          I would vote for axials unless it is a super project. Just for the simple fact that AB-Charles hobby shop has a rack with all the parts needed to build up axial axles.

          Tamyia is about a 1-3 month lead time for any parts. Not to mention the fun pot metal they use, and the lack of good aftermarket support for the TXT axles.

            building a 2.2 articulator with my own chassis cuts, and an over komplikated suspension design LOL

            thinking of using a brushless system in it as well, maybe the Goat kombo

              I'm thinking that you are an engineer or something like that...

              Don't overthink your set up... remember the key is to get out there and run it....and then tweak...

                minor engineering, drafting, ect.

                (points to "Torque Twist Control" thread) lol

                I do tend to overthink and get down into the nitty gritty of things

                On the design I'm workin on, I basically have nothin but time, so would like to see IF and how well it works.

                I do honestly appresiate all advise though, as I am new to the krawl arena of RC.


                Anywho, I think I may go the rout of using the AX10 axles, and lock em up nice and hard.

                  For a 2.2 definitely go with 2.2s. You can use TXTs but they would be overkill, and if you break parts...you're SOL for a long time.

                  Unless you are like me and pack rat TXT parts



                  KISS is you're friend man. Overcomplicated too much and you will always be chasing something instead of enjoying it

                    also, don't foget about Twin Force axles!!! the ring and pinion on those are based off of 1/8th scale buggie diffs! they may require a bit of your own work on modding them, and making them how you want them, but that's half the fun!
