Just wonder,

will these axles fit this injora rock buggy ?

https://www.injora.com/products/cnc-metal-front-rear-axle-for-1-10-rc-rock-crawler-axial-scx10

 

i have talk to one guy he have them for almost 2years now,  zero issues,  his friend have them for one year, same there.

They are very good.

 

They are cheap, goodlooking, and i have info today from one trusted guy with many years in RC Crawlers,   and he swear that they are Awsome axles 

He dont know anything about the Injora Rock Buggy sadly.

 

Please help me here, will they fit to Injora Rock Buggy ?

I looked at those same axles, the CVD joint can still break and the entire axle needs taking apart and putting back together with blue threadlock on every screw

Nice 🙂

thanx for help

 

I believe i will try these injora axles and buy that rock buggy , and one Injora TRX4 also now next week.

 

The rock buggy will have wery slow motor.  This car is only for rock crawling.

I will order cheap Holmer hobbies brushed 550 45t to this, and the cheap

Hobbywing 1080 esc i believe they call it, the brushed 80amp with programmer box

and 2.2 wheels i have decide now. 130mm to have some ground clearence

Proline Hyrax copy ones.   Keep it cheap but fun i believe

 

Saw the Holmer Hobbies 45 550 crawler motor for only 29euro  LOL

and the esc  46 euro  hehe, Both Locally,, 1-2 day shipping only. 

Very cheap , and these are great i have hear also 🙂

Bit of Banggood browsing this morning resulted in a great find a 5000mah 120C 2s hard case lipo but the shortie version jumped at it for £20 as it will sit nicely in front of the rear axle adds weight but not gonna make it rear heavy, and should give close on 3 hours crawl time

  • 2 weeks later...
  • Jack Reacher changed the title to Injora/Axial Rock buggy/crawler

What i strongly believe to be final mod done to this Injora/Axial crawler buggy, she now has an Axial gearbox fitted to get rid of the horrid whinny Injora one, this Axial one came out of my FS racing and i have fully stripped it cleaned it lubed it and replaced all bearings with decent rubber shielded, it was worth it, it now sounds sweet.

 

I have re named the thread as there is more Axial parts in this than original parts now ha ha

I recommend lengthening the wheelbase, the difference it makes is amazing  👍🏻

I like it at the wheelbase its at, i find it very agile, it bunny hops up rocks, i have said before but this rig has evolved into my best ever crawler and is well worth the upgrades

Looking good, quite interesting.

 

I've always leaned towards a more 'scale' looking crawlers/trail trucks. 

 

Had various over the years, SCX10's, SCX10.2's, Elements, TRX4...

 

Now really thinking I'd like a dedicated crawler... Be it a Element Ecto/Gatekeeper (although very similar to my Knightrunner just different body) and giving it big wheels, wide stance. The Axial RR10 Bomber and Ryft are too expensive for me but maybe this Injora could be a interesting project to tickle along with..

Be aware i did a lot of upgrades but had a few of the parts in spares like the axles, out of the box the front stock axle is prone to breaking the cvd`s and for some reason my transmission was really noisy

So it's just the metal drive axle bit inside the plastic axle housing that is weak? What replacements can you use that are stronger? 

 

Just trying to price up what it needs and the costs Vs Gatekeeper kit.

 

How much money does it need putting in to be reliable roughly?

 

Also, where is best to buy them? I've seen them on Amazon for £119 without wheels and a tad cheaper direct from Injora.

The axle weak part is the CVD joint at steering hub, but replacement parts are cheap about £5 for a pair. You can get the body only for about £30 and then get axles and links plus gearbox and stuff, i bought my Injora direct about £90 with no wheels as i knew i would use what i had, your gonna have a hard call on getting this or getting the Gatekeeper kit, or even the Gmade R1 kit, i was lucky having some spare axles and such but i guess i have spent about £140 on mine not including the shortie lipo, i had radio and ESC so i had to get decent servo and better shocks, i also got better driveshafts from transmission and brass axle extenders
