    I am having some Drakart Formula cross / Extreme axles made. These are both inner and outer sections. I will have 2 spare sets available if anyone is interested, let me know.

    Alain emailed me saying he is having 10 sets made and the inners are done already. Is that who is making these?

    No these are not from Alain, i am having these made myself because i have been trying to get axles for the last 4 years without success.

    Do you know what price Alain is asking? The best i could get them done for is
    $800 a set, which is my actual cost.

    He told me 400-500usd a set. Might be 600 at the most if the outer needs a different key

    Well it looks like i will have spare axles for 3 of my 4 machines then.

    I wonder why Alain is showing interest in these now, i haven't even been able to get a CV joint from him. Any chance he might remake other parts for them to? Trailing arms, front "A" arms and front and rear hubs would be nice.

    Apparently some chick caused an uproar and has been hounding him for a year that her machine is screwed becAuse the axle. He told me now,'it's been 5 months since I asked if he was going to make a new axle, that he is giving in and having 10 sets made and no more.

    Thats pretty good of Alain to re make the axles then, he sold the rights to these machines years ago and the rights have since been re-sold again.

    He is really doing the right thing, standing by the machines he made years ago.
