Currie F9 Portal Front Axle for SCX10-II based vehicles
The F9 Portal axles create extreme amounts of ground clearance under the center of your axle, increasing the clearance by 1/2″+ (13mm). This provides the equivalent of a tire over 1 inch taller than what is on your vehicle. The advantage of the Vanquish Currie F9 Portals is the gear reduction inside the portal (1.67:1) which can be adjusted with optional gear sets (1.4:1 Overdrive). By adding reduction at the portal, less torque is transferred through the other upstream components in the drivetrain. These axles are a direct replacement to any Axial AR44 axle, using all stock links.
These axles come with all parts needed to assemble a full front axle.
Portal box built into the included knuckle with bolt on high steer arm for double shear mounting
Gear reduction in the portal of 1.67:1 (18/30), Optional Overdrive Ratio of 1.4:1 (20/28) recommended for use in front axle only.
Included Vanquish AR44 machined gear set
Overall axle reduction of 6.26:1 with stock portal ratio
13mm increase in ground clearance
Specifically design offset C-hubs is machined into the housing for strength, durability, clearance and scale appearance
Hex to hex width of 7.66 inches, only roughly 5mm wider than a stock AR44 axle with a narrow hex
Replaceable Chromoly threaded inserts used at knuckle and C-hub to ensure a stripped thread doesn’t ruin your investment
Brass knuckle bushing from the AR60 axles are used in place of SCX10-II sized for more durability.

Requires the use of a 350 SLW hub or greater on Vanquish 1.9 wheels, Incision wheels will require a #4 or greater. Other wheel manufacturers offsets will vary. Axles must be used in pairs, you cannot run a front portal axle without a rear and vice versa.
