    I am running regular drive gears in you axles, I do want to look into either underdrive for the rear of overdrive for the front. I would look more towards the tranz and gettingthe hardned output shafts and beefed up gears in there.

    Aluminum C's and knuckles, get cvds. And rear lockouts. As far as over/under gears I don't think they make anything stronger persay(someone correct me if I'm wrong). But I would also look into stronger gears for that trans as well if that hasn't been done already.

    The over/under drive gears are also heavy duty. They have spiral cut gears and I believe they are also made of better metal. The spiral cut gears will allow for more surface area of the teeth to be actually used and also should make the gears operate more smoothly. That being said, I have yet to see anyone break the stock gears in the axles, they seem pretty bullet proof in stock form.

    Where should I get the gears for the trans? Also where for the output shafts?

    I don't have an Axial-style trans anymore, but when I did I used a HotRacing all metal jobbie. The aluminum internal gears stripped out/off in no time, so don't use HR! I swapped in the stock Axial plastic gears and never stripped them. Most people say to get better output shafts for the tranny though. I can't imagine breaking the stockers, but enough people do to support the aftermarket. Search on RCC to see what people are buying.

    The stock Axial bevel gear set is made of aluminum, or some other non-ferrous alloy, and is a 38/13 ratio. As others said, I can't imagine breaking it, but Axial makes two other ratios in Heavy-Duty hardened steel (spiral-cut like RickB said). The optional gearsets are an "overdrive" 36/14 set and an "under drive" 43/13 set. The overdrive will spin the wheels faster for every driveshaft revolution, increasing wheelspeed. The underdrive will slow the wheelspeed down, but give slightly better torque to the wheels. Looking at 1:1 trucks as an example, if you put bigger tires on your truck you need to go deeper with the gearing (say swap your 3.42's out for 4.10's when you go from 30" to 35" tires) in order to move the wheels properly/ not bogging down your engine, as well as keeping your speedo in the ballpark. For our RC needs you can increase or decrease your rigs speed. OR, you can over/under it, either putting the faster set up front, puting the lower set in back, or both. This will make your front wheels spin faster than the back, improving steering by giving a Dig-like effect. Not ANYWHERE NEAR dig, but the same idea- front wheels pulling sideways faster than rear is moving foreward = improved steering.
    I was always disappointed in the stock steering w/ axial axles. I just recently installed the "over" front gearset (36/14... lower # = faster speed) and I can definately see the difference. I'm waiting on the "under" rear set now (everybody has it on backorder).

    Front:
    Axial over drive gears
    RCP stainless steel locker
    Vanquish 8* knuckle and chub set up
    Have the spindles machined down 1/16" and re-chamfered the edge (yields about 45* steering angles without the weakness of Axial CVD's or the price of Super 300's)

    Rear:
    Axial under drive gears
    RCP stainless steel locker
    You DON'T need aluminum rear lock-outs if you keep it straight axled.

    beef toobs

    beef toobs.JPG I see all the upgrades for the axles but do not see beef toobs. Very cheap and give a lot of strength and weight. Not hard at all to put in. Just a thought. I use in my axial axles BOB

    unless you go under in the rear and over in the front at the same time....you will have more gear ratio spread going with unders in the rear and stock up front....here are ratio's for each set axial has..........bob

    GEAR RATIOS

    AX30401
    Heavy Duty Bevel Gear Set - 36T/14T

    AX30402
    Heavy Duty Bevel Gear Set - 43T/13T.

    Higher gear set ratio = 2.57.36T/14T
    Stock gear set ratio = 2.92.38T/13T
    Lower gear set ratio = 3.30.43T/13T
