Hi,

I was using the solid main shaft on my rather heavy Swift (My setup is 10s a123).

I bent the main shaft during an auto, and have a hollow main shaft in my tool box. Can I use it on my setup? Has anyone else used the hollow main shaft on their 10s a123 setup?

cheers, Khan

Given you have a few solid ones coming in some time next week and the weekend is here, I would only use if you have a nice straight one, no autos, no 3d and sport is ok.

Given the size of this shaft, hollow is stronger torsion wise but not in shear strenght whereas the solid one shines.

Go have fun this weekend.
