    halfshafts?
    I'm afraid I do not know what those are.
    If it has anything to do with the powertrain of the Slash, I may be able to help you in the research of this, since I am looking to beef up my powertrain.

    I just need to know what it/they is/are lol
    I am lucky I don't have any money.

    the halfshats are part of your drivetrain. they utilize the u joints, to connect your diff output yokes to your stub axles... (tranny to wheels)

    and i think the maxx shafts are much longer. but that is purely a guess. anyone know the length off hand?
    is there an 'AA' for RC addicts?

    The emaxx ones are about 1 and a half inches longer, and almost twice as thick.
    Good luck getting those to fit without some SERIOUS modification :|

    Im not sure. They probably would not fit on top of the A arms.
    I mean, they are BEASTLY.

    I am about to replace my rear driveshafts coincidentally, so Ill go take a picture of one next to the other.

    Darn. I was about to buy some and cut a little for the length issue. It does look close to the arm with stickers now that I look closer. Just thought that'd be cool

    not sure if it is that serious of an issue to use them but could you shave a little off the a arm to make it fit? the rear doesnt take to much abuse (on mine anyway) i need to get a in-person look at some of these..

    The are REALLY thick.
    You would need to raise the rear bearing carriers a good quarter inch to accomodate them even slightly.
    I also think the stub axler are of a larger size, so they would not even fit in the bearings.
