    Ouch I broke my shaft

    Hey everyone,
    well doing some bashing at a rest area the other day. Im a truck driver by the way. I busted a drive shaft, well the yoke. looking at upgrading my driveshafts on my slash raptor. Im running the VXL brushless system with a 3s lipos.

    being a trucker getting to a hobby store is very hard for me so id like to get strong drivershafts that with hold up to some slight jumping and good bashing. im fully RPMed out and picking up some big bores soon so need some driveshafts now.

    need to order online so links would help.

    Thanks all

    Darren.

    CVD's would be the way to go. They're a little expensive but they're a great upgrade.

    MIP has a lot of good driveshaft kits.

    Other driveshaft from them but more expensive.

    The output yolks seem to be a weak point on the driveline. I would also recommend some cvds, either from mip or strc. Seeing that they are metal, they should hold up to the 3s power.

    That's what happens when truckers hang out at the pickle park together. LOL

    Check out the slash 4x4 rear shafts. They are very durable, and cost about 35$ less than the cvds.

    Slightly loosening the slipper will prolong the life of the drive shafts
