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.
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.

I bought the VP portals for my Vs410. The assembly of the front portal was a tad confusing with the supplied instructions but in the end it all came together like it should. Everything you need is in the packaging and the quality is top notch of course. You will need to put an extended rod end on the front upper link of a Vs410 and possibly a high clearance pan hard.
I would have given 5 stars but my biggest complaint is the new wheel but being significantly larger than standard. You need a very thin walled 8mm but driver to properly tighten the wheel nut.
