That's it ledge , most people think there wolf parts are OK that's because they have not seen a good set , check a new factory shaft and then pick up a wolf shaft and feel the play in the balls and shaft , there cheep and nasty

HI
Has anyone ever heard of a set of
Stewart Wilkins axles breaking?
But they are almost twice the price of Wolfs.
So maybe know one has ever purchased any  ;)

My understanding has always been that the Wolf Creek shafts were good for only 600hp?

I'm not standing up for anyone, but I've run these shafts for 6-7 years now and the only issue has been the locking bolts backing out, which I sorted by using nylock nuts.

They are a bit noisy and clunky, especially at full droop it's possible to wiggle them by hand !! However, at horizontal they are good and they've lasted this far (5 gearboxes and 2 diff mounts later) when I couldn't get a single track day out of a set of uni joints.

Chiseling the splines is pretty dodgy when they should have a proper fitting set of shafts, but they still work fine don't they in this application....

I have had their CVs fitted for a while, but I don't do many ks.  There is a lot of play in the rear, but I'm not sure if its the diff or the shafts.  A friend was trying to source some Porsche CVs to replace the Chinese ones on the Wolf Creek setup, I'll check up and see how he went.

I believe the set I bought have the porsche cv's(or at least say so!!)? are there different sets they sell? or have they fixed some issues of late?

If they are ok for up to 600hp thats ok... Regarding SW Motorsport - he's expensive but the items are quality. I got his solid race diff mount and its been super strong

If you read the description, they are actually "Porsche style" CVs
