    I think if you called Traxxas support they would replace the broken one under warranty. I broke a steel CVD on my Revo and they took care of me.

    So i received the stub axles today and when i installed them i noticed that the
    axle was not spinning freely in the carrier so when i disconnected the turn buckle
    the carrier moved up and down when i turned the other rear wheel. Then i noticed
    the drive shaft was bent! Any ideas can it be fixed and is the any when i can just buy
    the shaft?

    Flicker116, glad to hear they took care of you. Traxxas support is second to none in this industry IMO. Also, the bent shaft is probably what caused the part to break or it happened at the same time when it broke. You can buy axles as a stand alone part. Suggest replacing both just to be sure so they are properly balanced. Nothing worse than having a wobbly truck.

    Cheers,
