What Axle set up works Best

OK guys i am giving this Rhino to my wife. I have a broken Gorilla axle and they are out of stock until who knows when. I want to replace the Gorilla axles with a good set up in the rear. I can go XMF and stock cv's what ever that is? or LSR and stock cv's? what ever that is.

Basically Gorilla has already fucked up this weekend with lack of parts. So i hate them and will be calling to tell them how I feel today. Depending on their response i may get on a plain to discuss further in person.

I will let everyone know the out come with Gorilla, and i am hoping it is just a huge demand and hard to get materials?

So whats the best alternative? I want something that I can use for a long time and know they will be around when I need new parts. I want a reliable shop to do the install and stand behind what the sell to me!

If you know the lengths they need to be, you can do Summers Bros 300 m axles and stock cvs, SB has two axles 300m and another one. Also Ishock uses them too I believe

MAybe the Magnum boys have some in stock, they use SB axles.

Trying to help, but to get them now may be difficult I am sure.


I am not sure that LSR has +6 only axles, maybe.

I am very happy with the Gorillas.... They built mine in 2 days and sent them overnight.... I havent broke one yet...

Rick,

So Cal Supertrucks didnt have one out of a kit they would let you buy ?

Call Custom Motrosports.... they may have one in a kit you can buy. They can get them repalced.

any axle that doenst take 4 hours to change is what you need.. they all break... the new XMF axles supposdly have yet to break even in a racing application. they have 5 of the top 10 cars in corr running thier kit and axles.. just get something other than gorillas, thats what created this whole mess. they might be stronger but damn that was a SOB changing that damn axle... it should only take 10-30min to swap an axle, rog will back me up on that fact!!!

dont buy my video. it sucks anyway!!!!

I bought a custom 2.5 mid range suspension kit that I needed to rebuild a couple of the Gorrilla CVs on. I broke the groove off that holds the cir clip on the axle when I was hiting the CV joint off. Anyways after calling and leaving 2 messages to Gorrilla 1 email that went un answered I was about to throw the axles in the trash. I called today and was greeted nicely and the phone call went smoothly. So all I know about Gorrilla is a sledge hammer is not a cool way of having to remove a CV joint and they are hard as hell to get a hold of. Im no help but at least I feel better.....

Never argue with idiots- They just drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
