The 710 one-way front axle can be very quickly converted
to a fixed axle using this simple optional consisting of 2 pins, 2
o-rings and an aluminium bushing. Simplicity is its greatest asset.
Pins can easily be placed through the appropriate holes in the front
one-way axle, which in turn goes through the drive shaft adaptors,
locking the axle.A bushing slid over the pins and a pair of o-rings
keeps it all in place. This piece can remain mounted all the time
with the pins inserted when required.
The benefit of a solid front axle is that the car brakes on all 4
wheels, allowing much later braking, especially beneficial on low
grip conditions and also on small, tight tracks.
