  • New Group4 Atlas Axle for the Escort

    Today we take a look at the Escort's axle, The Atlas is based on the Ford Capri axle and was used on the works Group 4 Escorts as a stronger alternative to the standard English axle. The Atlas axle is still used today on Escort rally car due to their reliability.

    This is the wide version for use with tarmac arches, thick tube casing with diamond shaped 4 link brackets. Alloy brace and watts linkage diff cover. Internally we have used a Gripper LSD and a 5.1:1 ratio crown wheel and pinion.

    Fully floating, twin tapered bearing rear alloy hubs with heavy duty half shafts and alloy flanges with group 4 studs. The fully floating rear hubs have the bearings located on the out side of the axle casing which takes the full weight of the car. The half shafts only transmits torque from the diff to the wheels. The half shaft and flange can be taken out without removing the hub assembly.
