    Default Fruity strikes again

    Sent Kev a message last week and a quick drawing of the extenders I'd like.
    There the same as the rears only 10mm narrower
    Also asked for a clip less shaft for them with a 18mm overhang after the pin, this allows a 20mm m4 cap head

    The reason I asked for them like this over the 1 piece ones he made Rav was so that

    A. Easier to remove etc

    B. So that I can now use the rears on the front if needed and vice versa

    Top job from a top man, thanks Kev

    Fruitbat is the man who can for sure
    I tried being reasonable, I didn't like it.

    Nice work from you & Kev there, like the fact you can swap fr & rr's.

    Fruitbat does nice work but you could have used Vertigo front axles and just had him make you the hubs..
    We've had them on the market for several years now.

    I know
    I've been using cut down rear drive cups which do exactly the same thing but I like Kev and his work so had him make me some whilst making my extenders
    Plus I believe yours don't have the bolt inside to tighten against the pin which I think is needed

    Nice little plug though, bravo

    It wasn't a plug, many don't know they exist.

    Hence the plug

    NOT nocking you products at all, I have a set of your extenders and quality is great but there simply not wide enough, the gain over stock is marginal

    Maybe a v2 should be on the cards !
    Wider with a hole in the end to allow tightening of the hub pin and your clip less shafts could be threaded to allow for the bolt to lock the pin in (like kevs )

    Maybe then people would know they exist and ya wouldn't need to jump in on kevs thread and advertise.

    Just ordered a set of these nice work Kev & Lea Running 5imian wheels all round on the 5B and they are 3mm thicker than any other wheels I have, the wheel nut is only catching the first 2 or 3 threads with the wheel being thicker, I mentioned this to Kev and he is making me some with +3mm on the thread section to allow for 5imian wheels to be run, Big Thanks Kev spot on service as usual
