HD Long Kyosho Rear Axle Conversion

Jun 05 2013

AVID engineers shouted "Enough!" after witnessing one too many Kyosho rear axle failures. We went into the lab and studied the design to see how we could stop those pesky DNFs for our Kyosho customers, and we guarantee you won’t break our Heavy-Duty Long Rear Axle. The HD Long rear axle conversion fits the RB6, RB5, and Lazer ZX-5 buggies along with Ultima SC short course trucks. To top it off, AVID is able to sell our HD axles as a pair for $15.00 which is the price you pay for a single kit replacement axle (coming soon).


  • In order to use the stock RB6 rear wheels, you will need drill them out to fit over the larger axle. We recommend a body reamer from the inside and it will do the job nicely.


  • No-Break Guarantee! Send a broken AVID axle back for a replacement.
  • Extended Threads for perfect fit with aftermarket buggy rear wheels by AVID, Pro-Line, AKA, JConcepts, etc…
  • Precision CNC Machined Stress-Proof Steel Axles work with Kyosho swing shafts.
  • 1.5mm (or 1/16”) drive pin replaces 2mm cross pin for increased strength, along with all sharp corners removed.
  • Fits RB6, RB5, Lazer ZX-5 and Ultima SC.
  • Set includes 2 rear axles, 2 aluminum clamping hex adapters, 2 AVID solid axle pins, 1 AVID decal.
