Installed Nitro Axle Sleeves last weekend. I destroyed a cheap HB race driver set, and buddy through out his back swinging a sledge hammer. Short side was rough the entire way. Long side was really easy until the very end. I took an 1/8 or so off with grinder to finish up flush.
Unfortunately my axles did not come out so easy and this is where I lost most of my time, penetrating fluid, and a few screwdrivers due to the axle not separating from the steering knuckle.
Cant complain for the money, hope they do their job. Ran out of time and have gussets to weld on the C's before heading to RC P.A. in the next week or so.
Yeah, next time I do the no-weld sleeves, I'll a) be very drunk or b) get someone else to do it for me. Definitely was a major PITA. But, they are supposed to be stronger than the weld-in type sleeves. They are in, and that's all that matters anymore.

Installed teraflex sleeves about three weeks ago, I was surprised how clean the inner tubes were, and with very little rust. New rig I suppose! Tubes slid in with ease and very little tapping. Can't wait to go and beat on them now! lol
