The Bowhouse X-Maxx SVT 8mm Spur Shaft is an optional upgrade for the stock X-Maxx cush drive spur gear system. This 8mm Spur Shaft makes it easy to switch to standard, readily available 8mm pinions as spur gears, giving you plenty of options for Mod 1 and Mod 1.5 gears. Installation is quick and easy whether you are running the stock motor and mount or an aftermarket setup, and the hardened steel shaft is tough enough to take the abuse.
