    oh it's certainly lighter than the steel version, I was able to hold it up and bolt it into place by myself (only just) and it's rated for 700 HP so that should be good for a while hopefully!

    Same here but I guess it works? Yes it was a custom shaft.

    I see that, I think its interesting how they use fasteners to balance with washers. it was custom made?

    Seriously! I'll get a shot later tonight that shows just how tight, me thinks I'll be getting 15mm spacers, or maybe 20 to push the wheel out to where the wider part of the barrel is, would make me feel better.
