Flo torq 2 hub kits

Hi Guys/Girls

What's the difference between the two different types of flo torq 2 hub kits? I have just found one that's a long plastic tunnel with a metal insert and there's the type I already have with the snubber (rubber lolly pop shape strips) strips running along a metal insert.

Thanks Dave

Flo Torq 2 is for 1" propshafts, the type you have is a Heavy Duty "Fat Shaft" hub

No you don't! You have a "solid" hub kit... Heavy Duty is a 1 1/4" propshaft, you have the girls version of one

I see, I've now moved over to fatshaft anyway, which was as simple as swapping out the propshaft as it already had the 1 1/4" bearing carrier

I have lost two of my snubber strips and have ordered some, but there not due to arrive for another week or so.

So i have made some and it's all nice and tight and works fine.

I tried a plastic hub kit I had with a metal insert, however as you have pointed out it's only 1" and won't go on my fat shaft.

I'm sure I have seen the plastic kits for sale new on eBay to fit the fat shaft as well as the proper metal ones. The plastic ones are cheap as chips and say upto 300 or 350 hp though
