seriously?

When I've blown up lockouts, it seems they just crumble, and it take forever to clean out all the pieces in the grease.

I would never expect them to take out a CM shaft

The Toy hubs are different, busting the inner hub gear tends to strip the splines.

I've moved to ARP hub studs and chromo heat treated hub gears, so isn't a problem.

My weak link is my ring and pinion, pretty soon I'll be carrying a spare R&P for a trail spare, though..

ok scott from machinewave is my boy..just called him he will do 355.00 shipped . his everyday price to anyone is 375.00. need to go through me for this price. he also said he will call jack(owner of ctm) if you wanted to set up a bigger group buy of joints for 60's or if anyone wants shafts...scott is who i have dealt with for a while and his service is top notch. and you cannot beat his prices.

if you want it light throw that POS 205 in the trash they arent worth there weight in any way.

i asked him about the longfields.he is also a dealer for them. he said they have been picky on there warrantie. he will sell you anything but has alot of guys running all the different stuff.scott is more then happy to tell everyone his findings. his shop name is sunfire offroad..check out crawl advertisements and you will see his name on alot of rigs. call and ask on shaft prices and i can almost garantie they will be cheaper then anyone else. he is just in indiania so he is sorta close.

I've broken a lock out and the joint/shaft were just fine. But I have the smaller lock outs.
