    I noticed that most of the axles that use bevel gears have a 21/2 to 1 ratio. This means a low drive shaft speed for these axles which is much friendlier to excessive drive shaft angles you get in crawling. My question here is how much speed are the good drive shafts capable of at extreme angles? Will a higher geared worm drive gearbox that needs more driveshaft rpm put a strain on the u-joints?
    The angles wont be as extreme on these due to the fact that the axles are angled in the middle causing the input to be up further then normal straight axles.
    The u joints are usually the best breaking points in the drive line anyway. Usually easiest and cheapest to replace.

          It should be similar to Bully, but its still a little bit too early to tell. We should have confirmed # within 1-2 weeks.

          We also have the Kyosho crawler now, we will make sure ours is better.

            Just make sure it isnt geared as low as the Kyosho

              Do You plan to make a completely new 1.9 or 2.2 kit for the worm axle, or it will be only an upgrade to existing kits?
