    So I was fishing through ebay and found these..

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Steel-Con...#ht_500wt_1156

    1. It says E-Revo but i want to know if they'd fit in a summit?
    2. Will they be stronger than stock or equal strength?

    Sorry I can't answer your first question, but someone will surely know.
    2. I believe it is stronger than stock. I am running the steel driveshafts in the centre (trans to diffs) and they have held up well.
    If you find these fit the summit then go ahead but leave the stock plastic driveshafts in the centre. Your driveline has to "give" somewhere.
    In my case i have the steel centres so i am keeping the stock plastic axles.

    If the summit can go through; its not deep enough

    Yes they are stronger than stock, but a hard impact would still bend them out of shape.

    BUT the main issue is the fact they do not flex or articulate very well in the summit. The erevo is designed to have a stiffer less flexible suspension ( helps with high speed stability and cornering). The summit wants as much articulation and flexibility as possible, which would lead to the these cvd arms constantly slipping out of the drive cup or binding into the drive cup.

    they would fit on one side...the other side requires shorter shafts because of the space the lockers take up in the bulkhead

    Those, are pretty sick. Revo axles don't fit with the diff lockers though. I have the center driveshafts and I'd sure like to try out a set of axles for the Summit.
    PM me for help converting your Summit to brushless

    I have been searching for upgraded shafts, but no one seems to make a decent set. MIP makes some for the summit but they have had mixed reviews.

    I had those and tryed to make them fit the locker side but no one makes the right length shaft to make it work. IMO they are great for Revos but they will not fit. just my 2 cents

    Yup... that has been covered.
    It would be nice though.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    And you will be sorry you wasted your money. I'm saying, "I told you so," preemptively.

    I have to agree with K.

    I have a full machine shop at my disposal... I can do what ever I like and make what ever I need. I had plans to make a set of axles for the Summit. Then I got to thinking... the stock axles are $7ish. That makes for a pretty cheap fuse!

    Now that I have my slipper adjusted correctly... I have yet to break another axle or strip another differential.

    Just a little food for thought.

    I couldn't agree more. There would e a lot of time and effort put into them.

    I also planned on making a set but why? Just so I could break somthing else that was more expensive or harder to fix?
