German Redcat distributor Absima has introduced a new Gen7 portal axle kit. The set is designed for the Everest Gen7 and features the same portal axles that are installed in the Redcat Gen8 Scout II scale crawler, but includes all the parts needed to easily install portal axles on the Gen7 Sport or Pro vehicles. This kit includes the front and rear portal axle, along with a moulded plastic plate so owners can mount the servo to the Gen7 chassis. The axles utilise Mod 1 steel gears, metal hex hubs and metal gear covers for durability as well as a CNC machined aluminium spool. The kit also includes a slipper clutch upgrade, with gearing change, intended for the Everest Gen7. Because of the additional gear reduction present in the portal axles, without a gearing change, the Everest Gen7’s top speed will be reduced by about 50 percent. This slipper clutch system features a lockout system, for those who decide they don’t want the possibility of their drivetrain slipping, but still want the gearing change.
