    Axle issues

    Hi
    I'm ive just got my slash 4x4 up and going, i'm running a ezrun sc8 sct combo, its a 550 2700kv motor etc.

    Anyway went for my first real bashing run at a local bmx track and when i got home i noticed the rear axles are slightly twisted.
    Not sure if they will last past the next bash session.
    I'm looking to upgrade all 4 and have read mixed reviews on mip cvds, i've just found Tekno RC front and rear M6 Driveshaft & Hub Carriers. has anyone tried these? are they worth the money?
    any feed back would be good

    I prefer Mip X-duty axles. They have been on my truck for over a year now with no problems. Lots run Tekno. Others will chime in.

    I'll cast another vote for the MIP x duty. Just be sure to use lock tite on the small set screws, and use shrink tube around the slide pins.

    I had MIPīs on rear only, and twisted the plastic ones at front, new mipīs are on their way. I have no complain with mines, only the screws that goes into the diff are too small, and they tend to get loose even with loctite so I got the pins from the erevo, and it works good.

    After I use the loctite, I let it sit for at least twelve hours to let it setup. After a year I am still impressed on how well they work!

    What slide pins are you referring to?

    No Rubbing at all, but it took some work. The T-maxx 2.5 Stub axles i used instead of the e-revo ones (e-revo ones wouldnt work) are not as wide, so the e-clip/ little shaft connecting the stub axle too the driveshaft had too be trimmed down for rotational clearence.

    this is the part that i had too trim. i took off about 1/8 of an inch and had too make a new groove for the e-clip. then there is absolutley no rubbing or rotational issues
