    Stock rear axles #6853 have arrived

    My LHS received these today and Traxxas has shipped them out to me. Very good news. But I can't wait to test these to see if they are any stronger than the originals. I will know after 1 battery at my track.

    Hopefully the front axles #6853 will arrive soon...along with the CVDs.

    I talked to Traxxas Support yesterday and they said that they SHOULD have the fronts in a week to a week and a half. They sent me a pair of rears (#6853's) as I had bent mine at the track on Monday. VERY helpful and knowledgeable support staff!

    Does anybody here know how to straighten bent axles? If I bought axles everytime I bent one I'd have spent way over $200 in the past year just on axles alone. You can r&r an axle and straighten it in about 5 minutes. A piece of scrap half inch steel plate and a hammer will do the job. Use a file to dress up the surface so that it slides into the bearings and it's done. I usually fix an axle 10-12 times before it snaps from metal fatigue. BTW, I ran the truck twice today and bent an axle on each run (40 degree temps). Don't throw those bent axles away guys, I'll take all I can get!
