    New stub axles

    Have any of you guys noticed the new stub axles have longer threads and come with blue loctite on them? Thats not where to difference stops either. I cut one apart and the metal pin inside is much larger and made of a pretty hard metal. I thinks its the same as the drive pins. I think broken stub axles are going to be far less common! Has anyone broken one of these new ones?

    Yea I broke both the front and rear stub axles, and the new ones are longer. Not sure why. Upon installing them I realized that wheel doesn't fit as tightly as the old ones, there is a little wobble even when I tighten the wheel nut all the way. My quick fix solution was to put 3 washers in between the wheel and the hub. No more wobble. Have fun
    Its not fun unless you're trying to brake it...
