    hey everyone
    i have just bought a ke70 with a mini spool inside the standard t series.
    Was wandering how easy it would be to snap axles if it is still behind a 4ac, and what kind of daliy driving would contribute to this e.g. city/car park driving, accelerating on long sweeping bends ?

    I estimate that it will last exactly 3 months, 2 weeks, 4 days, 17hours, 12minutes and 42seconds, assuming the 4ac/t50 is stock and 3.9 ratio on 185/60r14 bridgestone RE001 tyres (and slight camberwear on the left cos the housing is bent)

    nice answer rthy! haha

    how long is a piece of string?

    it will depend on SOOO many variables that it is an unpredictable thing...

    weight of the wheels comes into it, abuse, lack of talent, other suspension components being used etc etc

    Hah, no way of telling. Some guys here run ke70 welded diffs with 4agte and have never had issues, others break axles with 4AC motors, who knows. Generally speaking don't do slow speed full lock turns on asphalt as it puts more strain on the axles
