the ST 250 bearing has better and stronger properties . the tripod structures on the universal joint is stronger on the 250. by using the 250 hub i get to use the 250 shaft. the bearing has the added bonus of a circlip behind the bearing. the 225 shouldve had the circlip assembly from day 1

in short..

stronger shaft
stronger tripod
circlip assembly for bearing

Nice !

Straight swop ?

Or some modifications..


there are some mods yes, the M66 gearbox spline is different from the MMT6 gearbox from the 250. My shafts will be custom machined- M66 Slpine on GBOX Side and MMT6 on the Hub side

We can chat, Autotech Sweden did a big turbo RS and ST so should be able to tune it...

When mine is running and tuned we can see if it's something you'd like etc.
