Strange’s top seller is the Hy-Tuf 35 Spline Axles, we also make them in 28, 30, 31, 33 splines.
How do we do it? Strange Pro Race Axles are made from a steel alloy that was originally intended for use in military aircraft landing gear. Hy-Tuf is in a class of ultra-strength alloys configured with a low concentration of carbon and high degrees of manganese, nickel, and molybdenum steel. Strange Pro Race Axles are through-hardened to a tensile strength of 240,000 psi allowing them to retain the necessary degree of ductility required for elite level drag racing.
Strange Pro Race axles are the best value on the market today. That’s why more drag racing competitors rely on Strange axles than all other brands combined! Contact a Strange sales technician to discuss your specific application.
We Cut Before Heat Treatment, Not After.
Strange Hy-Tuf Drag Race axles are thru hardened. This specific type of heat treatment hardens the axle all the way to it’s core providing exceptional torsional strength.
We can not stress enough the importance that Strange Engineering does all of its machine work on the splines prior to heat treatment. This allows for consistent heat treat depth, leading to a stronger axle. Be aware that some companies induction heat-treat the material before the splines are machined into the axle, which causes it to be weaker despite the shiny look.
Strange axles are typically manufactured with a larger than stock axle bearing diameter area. This provides more strength in an area that may see additional stress due to tire shake.
