For the highest level of performance and safety, especially for track days where race speeds push the limits of a street car, Speedtech has developed the ExtReme full floating axle. The unique axle incorporates a double splined axle shaft with an independent heavy duty splined and sealed hub assembly. By design this set up transfers only torsional load from the axle center through the axles and only the outer hubs take on the load from driving forces and the weight of the car. Speedtech Performance was among the original developers to first adapt this technology into a street legal package that even incorporates a parking brake system. Overall the ExtReme 9″ axle reduces brake pad knock back, bearing wear, axle deformation, and makes changing gears possible without even unbolting the wheels.
Our exclusive Speedtech ExtReme floater mates the proven reliable heavy duty Corvette C7 rear drive hub and factory parking brake with a NASCAR quality 9” housing and 31 spline center side and 33 spline hub side floating axle shafts. Our housing ends are precision CNC machined from Billet steel to ensure high strength. The C7 drive hub uses a forged housing and fully sealed dual bearing pack, spreading the loads over a broader bearing surface area and eliminating the possibility of internal contamination. Our hubs require no regular maintenance or preload adjustment! The ExtReme axle assembly is one of the only Floater assemblies on the market that incorporates a drum style parking brake making it LEGAL for street operation and state safety inspections.
