Steel Go-Kart Axle - 44in. Length
Good Strong Axle
Good Strong Axle... We put our Kart through some seriously punishing off road trials that busted welds and snapped other parts of the frame...but this Axle stayed true...only problem was the 3/4x16 threads needed some chasing prior to installation...

Thick black paint
This axle has caused a great deal of extra work getting rid of all of the thick black paint on it. The full length keyway is nice, and I have had no problems with bending, however, the paint cancels out anything positive I could say about it.

Right when i got the axle i noticed it was black. i was ok with it, but when i tried to put the hubs on, i realized it was very thick!! i havnt decided whether to sand it down or not.

Returning axle. Painted Black...thick!! NOT Plated as picture would suggest. Not going to deal with scraping it all off to get sprockets on. Won't know how strong it is.

well when i got it i first noticed it was "black" i didnt know it was going to be black!! and with this black coat on the axle it made it very hard to put my sprokets and bearing on, mostly imposible!!!

Check your threads!
I received two of these and used them to extend axles from a differential. I didn't notice the threads ON BOTH were NOT FULLY CUT until AFTER spending a few hours attaching them to other axle ends. Needless to say, I wasn't going to return them, so spent another hour plus cutting the threads the rest of the way.
Lame to get a part that isn't right... especially TWO!
Other than the threads, great axle!

this axle is very strong and reliable even for off road applications.I tried to make my own before but u have to buy this axle because its tempered steel not mild steel that bends to easy.
