This is what we call TAKING THE BULL BY ITS HORNS Spicer ® AdvanTEK ® 40 Tandem Axle | SPL ® 250/350 Driveshafts The real solution for downsped engines. Our industry is changing, and we certainly have to change with it. That is why Dana engineered the Spicer ® AdvanTEK ® 40 tandem axle with the fastest axle ratios to support today's trend of downsped engines. But, as axle ratios get faster, more torque is driven through the drivetrain. Some will say that the only way to handle downspeeding is to limit the amount of engine torque that is generated through the system. However, this restricts engine capabilities and hinders trucks from operating at full potential. To ensure the integrity of the vehicle, the right U-joint and axle must be specifed. Otherwise the expected life will be compromised. Dana offers the only full drivetrain system solution for downspeeding with the Spicer ® AdvanTEK ® 40 tandem axle and the SPL ® 250/350 driveshafts. As the industry's most reliable, durable products available for Class 8 commercial vehicles, they can handle the extra torque for continuous effciency at an optimal engine speed. While others might speak of a solution, Dana delivers it. Spec the system now. Learn more at danacv.com/advantek40 Circle 226 on Reader Action Card
