    Default Split-axle truck axles

    I'm interested in split-axle trucks at the moment, but here's something I don't understand. How the heck are the axles kept in place? I'm guessing some type of "reversed" threading, but does that really hold the axle in place for downhill type trucks like the Maguns or the Landyachtz hangars? Or are the axles held in place by some other method? Oh, and does it have anything to do with those holes next to the bushing seat seen below?

    No it doesn't have anything to do with the holes.
    In the magun, the splitfire, the airflow and the radikal the axles are reverse threaded in the hanger.
    Usually the axles are held with loc-tite.

    In the jimz hangers the axle is full width and is positionned into the hanger.

    *Sigh* I suppose it won't hurt posting a picture of the old protos... They're held in place with pins.

    looks to me like those holes are for set screws.......maybe to keep the axle from moving once it's threaded in

    Interesting...I'm gonna start studying the use of a CNC+lathe towards fall/winter so I'm thinking of making some trucks for fun, if it isn't too complicated 8) Until then I guess I'll just have to drool over the Maguns and the Landyachtz hangers up in Åre.

    Panda, we should go and get a beer or four up there!
