Vanquish Products V2 Wraith/Yeti Axles
Vanquish Products machined aluminum axles have long been a hit with Axial Wraith and now Yeti owners. This product has been around a few years and naturally the company finds ways to improve their products through tons of customer feedback. Que the V2 VP Wraith/Yeti Axle housings. The stock design of the wraith axle has long been a weak point due to the stress it places on the bearings. The pinion shaft bearing is undersized for the loads it has to endure so the first change VP made was to upsize the bearing holding this shaft. The old 5x11x4mm bearing has been replaced by a new bigger and stronger 5x14x5mm bearing.
Another stress point was the stock design of the bearing retainers for the lockers. VP redesigned the new bearing retainers to be one piece to reduce stress on the bearing greatly increasing its life span.
They have also redesigned the link mount system on the axle so that there is no through-axle hardware to interfere with the axle shaft if you are running oversize axle shafts.
And the last change they have made are the mounting holes for the C-hub. They have slightly modified the design to allow for more material to engage the mounting hardware making it more robust.
