Default Can you identify this buggy axle

Guys, and girls. can anyone tell me what/who made this axle... All I know is it's the perfect size/width for my castle/hyper7/wood franken rally car I have and would be nice to have spare parts when it eventually strips a diff or shaft etc. its running on borrowed time as it is because the wheel bearings are shot to bits and all the joints have far to much play in them, Could patch it up but would rather have spares.


here is a picture of the axle but the shock absorbers are not original (its a franken coil/shock) set up..

the yokes, upper and lower arms, drive shafts are all original the input shaft is not original though

see what you think, I would love to know what its from. I been looking for ages and have no clue!. all I know is its from a buggy about 1/8 scale

Oh, it's off one of the HORRIBLE Tamiya 1/9th nitro buggies from the early-mid 2000's. The Rising Lunch or something like that?

Its about ten years old. The one I have (front and rear) have been used so much In that time and its still good and strong. It did have some play in the joints naturally, but I fixed last night after a strip down. The dif gears are in perfect order and the bearings are solid.

They are strong axlles and the pefect width for my rig.
