Vorza Hexes On Savage XL

Post by messiah1 » Mon Mar 21, 2016 7:05 pm

Anyone put the Vorza hexes on their Savage?  I picked up a set of 4 of these hexes for less than $20 on ebay and figured I'd give it a go on an extra set of axles.  Pretty easy mod.  I just put each axle in my drill press vise and drilled the hole big enough to fit the Vorza pin and then sanded off a little of the spacer to get everything to line up.  Slid the Vorza hex over the axles, dropped in the pins and put the wheels on.

Turned out pretty solid and since I couldn't find the actual parts (#114341) anywhere, this seems like a good solution.

Excellent, I started looking for a new solution as my Blue Groove hexes that I had to drill out for started getting real sloppy after a while.  Please update on how well these hold up over time.
