Evolve GTR / Hadean riders can now run XCELL™ wheels (both standard and the wide XT series) with our new XCELL™ axle sleeve kit!
This kit consists of four hardened 440C stainless steel axle sleeves (threaded internally) that screw on to your existing Evolve axles, enlarging the diameter of the axles to 12mm and increasing track width slightly. By adding an XCELL™ 62T (or other compatible 62T pulley), and a pair of 345mm belts, you can run the amazing XCELL™ wheels on your Evolve!
By simply flipping the motor pinion (so that the guide edge is to the outside) and moving it outwards on the motor shaft a bit, perfect belt alignment is achieved.
Another, BETTER OPTION is running a steel 15T pinion with guides on both sides, which features a larger grub screw that doesn't strip as easily as the small stock screw. Get those pinions from makermotor here.
You can also run 16-17T motor pinions, along with a slightly longer belt (such as 350mm), to achieve higher top speeds.
The stock Evolve 7" all-terrain tires fit XCELL™ wheels both standard and the XT wide versions) perfectly.
NOTE: This kit does not damage your original axles in any way and is easily removable. You can use the same XCELL™ wheels and pulleys on other boards / truck setups as well, and will last a lifetime. E-Boards come and go - alloy wheels are forever!
