Why does it have such a long shaft?

Is there a short shaft version???

Everything I dug up looks like you can only get the long shaft.

So do I have to cut it down in the Trex 550 application???

How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

Looks like the old 1175kv version came with a standard shaft...http://www.kdedirect.com/KDE600XF1175.html

Guessing that they got more requests for a longer shaft to use with a counter bearing that they made it standard.

I would just cut it down. Have not measured mine but at 44mm lenght it seems like it might interfere with the lipo on the tray and if not just imagine the lipo getting knocked around after a crash....if impact doesn't take it out the motor shaft might.

Cutting shafts has become the norm now. There is no standard for shaft length and I would rather have a long shaft that I can cut than a short shaft that I may have to replace and cut. Takes 5 minutes with a dremel and comes out the perfect length everytime.
