Default Re: Axle weight?

Just curious or you all saying that single axle can weigh over 200 pounds are is there something wrong with that scale.I can lift one of my axles with one hand this axle I would need a engine hoist to get it in the tubes.

No, because the comparison is not between a 200 lb. axle and a 20 lb. axle. What is being said is that comparing the cost of a 14 lb. rifled-drilled, flange-scalloped axle to a "normal" 20 lb. axle is not justified for any performance advantage in most cases, if you are expecting the lightened axle to require less power to accelerate it. Physics shows that the benefit is extremely minimal.

My thoughts......


The most bang for the buck is running worn out slicks.....
