Robbe axles... hmm...
The tube Iīll press over the joint between the end of the driveshaft and the extension will have 6 mm inner and 8 mm outer diameter. That should avoid any wobble.
Another thing is the bending moment, the extended shafts put on the narrow axle case but the Robbe Panther and even the Bauteil1 trial trucks use the same case so this should work.

The rear axle is done, I glued all parts of the extensions with 2-components epoxy glue. The hexes don`t use the usual pin but two flat spots and fit perfectly here.

It sure looks strong enough. Will the right side come un-threaded as you drive?

I donīt think so, Stu. All parts including the threads are glued together with that really strong epoxy glue and baked in the oven at 180°C.

The rear pillar is lengthened and I got my third victim ...

Assuming thus is the thrusty old UHU-Plus I would agree and state that only C4 or nukes could seperate those again...
That axle looks pretty good and the round pumpkin gives it a scale appearance with those semi wheels
I'm only not sure about the outer single shaft-bearings. OTOH is this not a trial-rig and will see flat roads primarely

Martin, yes, I used UHU Endfest300. The driveshafts are running on one bearing at each end and are 6 mm diameter. For on-road use, that should work.

As the semi leaf springs are much too hard and too "curved" I made my own leafs. The alu pieces are necessary to get the leafs outside the frame.

The second leaf is done, too. I used a semi damper for a mock-up; it looks scale but actually it isnīt a real damper as thereīs only a small spring inside.

What have you used?
Or is your wiffer now screaming and nagging over a dysfunctional cable reel in the vaccum-cleaner

Matt, thanks !

Martin, where did you get that pic of my wife .... ?

Nah, the vacuum-cleaner is still working! Itīs steel strap thatīs used for keeping together building materials like bricks or to strap them to a pallet.
We rebuilt our terraces last year so I have a nice stock of it. It works fine when you donīt overbend it. Itīs much softer than the Tamiya semi spring material so you can adjust the spring rate by adding a few leaves.

Actually borrowed from another forum; we were chatting about high-end speakers (read: manly man, refrigerator-size speakers ) as one brittish lad sudenly posted: "...while at home I usually listen to this...<nagging wife>"; laughed my arse off at this piece of britt-humor never got an answer on my inquiry about her crossover frequency though...

I reckon, but isn't that too soft? I got semi-leafs here and figured to undrill the rivet and use only one or two plates.
