    Axle replacements?

    I have a Slash with a Proline Kit.
    I race with a stock motor and esc.
    I bend a lot of Axles, both front and rear. Not HUGE bends, like you would get from a bad landing off a Big Jump, just small bend that cause wheel wobble and premature bearing wear. I would estimate that I bend an axle every 3 to 6 races. The axles seem to be the weak point on this car. They look like they are made of Bronze with a shiny (nickle or tin?) coating.

    I am wondering if Traxxas makes an upgrade axle for the Slash 2x4.
    Or does some aftermarket company make (stronger than stock) axles for the Slash.

    I read somewhere that the 4x4 Slash had a similar problem with the early kits, but that Traxxas fixed the problem by spec'ing stronger material for later axles.
    Will Slash 4x4 axles fit the 2x4 Slash?

    I found thesehttp://www.fastlanemachine.net/prodd...LM26330&cat=17 Rear axles from FastLane.
    I think I could make them work with slightly modified stock Sliders.

    Have not found anything to replace the Front axles though.
