RCMAX HEX-LOCK kit for the HPI Baja
So here is your first teaser, more to follow over the next couple of weeks! In our 1:1 Superlite brand single-seater cars (aswell as many other off road buggies and racers), we run 200HP+ through a solid axle with a quality driveline, so why not our high powered RC Cars?
The permanent solution to smashed Baja Diffs/pins and also the shortage of genuine HPI bevel gears. Please take a sneak peak at the RCMAX HEX-LOCK kit for the HPI Baja!
The current issue with locking your diff is the 4mm diff pins are still the weak point and snap with big power. Well we have totally done away with the internal diff pin and instead are driving on a 1/2" hex which simply won't break. This transfers the weak point out of the transmission and back to either the grip of the tyre or the 5mm wheel hub pins (which are super easy to replace).
The HEX-LOCK kit is made to suit the Bulletproof IRC UHD Drivetrain, but to remove any temptation to copy the idea etc, will also have a set of hex-lock Cups to suit the Godzilla drivetrain available too. (see pics of both).
Norm Lamarche refused to run his 80 Supreme until I solved this problem after he went through 8 (or more that he didn't tell me of) sets of baja bevel gears!!!
