My son 3D printed the parts to do a straight shaft conversion on my Vanquish 540.

It's just printed in PLA, if it works out OK he'll print us some in a stronger plastic. It seems reasonably strong so far.
The files were in an online open free repository, total printing time was around 7 hours.

I converted my vanquish to straight shaft by simply wrapping an old bike tube around the shaft and reinstalling the control box . Works a treat .

The 1st set of 3D printed parts broke very quickly and I went back to the standard set up.

I have some new stronger parts I'm going to try next time I go out.

I find it pretty much the same to use with the straight shaft, the main thing is I'm worried about is accidentally breaking the handle away from the display box part.
