    Thumbs up Problems with E-TECH Wheel 18PSI

    I need help. Can anybody tell me if they had problems with the shaft braking using the E-TECH Wheel 18PSI. Running at 8700 plus RPM...... Thanks.

    We upgraded the shaft everytime we upgraded the sc wheel. I assume 18psi and 8700+rpm is beyond the strength of the stock shaft.

    YamaFzr forgot to mention that he is talking about the R&D shaft with the ET18, the stock one definitely can't handle that load.

    One guy down here destroyed his charger with the R&D shaft and ET18. He was running 8900 RPMs, we are just trying to figure out the max rpm this combo is good for.

    We think that the stock one is fine with E1 or ET16 to 7700rpms. So far we have not seen any issues with the stock one and those wheels in various skis. They only boost around 12pounds at that RPM, anything higher I would not do it without the R&D shaft.

    ET and R&D both make shafts, as does Riva, altho Riva includes bearings. Which one is strongest, or are they mostly all the same??

    Well the ET is not a complete shaft and I have been told that the Riva one is an HKS rebrand. The only one I would use is the one that has been proven and that is the R&D.
