Color shifter axles

Dadvball Sunday, 8/20/2017

Other than the Camaro LoS is doing now, has anyone else used the nickel axles from the color shifter cars when building a racer?  Hadn't thought about it myself cause those things are kinda pricey just for the axles. And I've gotten stingy as I've gotten older.

The T Bird I did for Redline Revival has the front axels off two CS Camaros, and it was fast. Also, the Charger I just did for the Car Culture race had the axels off a CS Torque Twister and it came in second to a very fast Porsche GTAMan built. Plus, think how much a 1st gen FTE is if you keep it as is or chop it? They also come with a metal chassis that can be re-used in other builds....I understand your viewpoint though, but they are a readily available nickel platted axel, which we know in this hobby is better...it's the axel...not the wheels.

Thanks for the info. I may just check them out then. I have some cars with first gen FTE but mostly the small tires. Larger are better so I'll probably never cut them up.

Another plus is unlike the CS Torque Twister and the 70 charger which is a match, you know it's a straight pop and switch for like castings, so I get to upgrade a mediocre mainline Corvette Stingray at 50g stock with some nickel platted axels and the true potential for very good to elite speed.
