    they dont bend to easily
    but i think they are hollow inside
    i probably have bent 4 in a year
    but i can say ive never shimmed a diff and im running 6s with losi diffs and losi axles and kershaw centre dogbones and have not broken any parts of driveline for over a year and even before then i only broke one std diff in one year
    i do abuse my truck but i dont abuse it for 10 minutes straight most of time i give it in small bursts and then cruise abit
    then abit more and when i do top speed runs i think i give it afew long high speed runs then cruise it abit

    u cant straighten them back out but its easier to buy new set
    way ive done mine is ive used losi hubs and got 5mm extra track each side
    that way i didnt have to redrill the hole for the pin
    but i havnt been using mine lately due to tqi problems
    but i now have parts to fix just kids dont let me have spare time and i got a new ps3 game
    which stops me spending time on car hehehe

    i charge at anything from 5 to 8 amps

    let me know if yr losi axles pop out
    i need to look for a cure for mine
    friend just fitted losi diffs but he got other expensive cvds
    but i think they are for std revo hubs so they are not the 8mm diameter

    Its all on the battery specs. If Im in no hurry I generally go for 5amps too. My packs are rated for 5C charge rate so with 5000mAh thats 25 amps. I charged them a couple of times at what my charger can handle just to see how well they did and got two packs charged at 20amp rate at the same time in 12 minutes. They fell short on run time by a few minutes charging them fast. If Im running for a long time and dont want to carry a bunch of packs I charge them at 10 amps balanced which takes about the same time it does to charge as it takes me to run out a set of charged packs, pit, swap packs, put discharged packs on charge and go back at it.

    Good to hear what kind of life span do they have. I'm thinking I should have gone that route in the first place like Mitch recommended

    they last a long time.just make sure you clean the dirt out of them and keep them lubed.i learned that the hard way.i use wd 40 to clean and lube them.i do it about once a month

    ive spaced my bearings so that the lst2 axle sits in the diff cup just enough
    but one side normally pops out more than the other but this is like once every 2nd charge of batteries
    i had a look at those expensive axles someone had a link on here the other day and they had a rubber boot
    over that end not sure if a boot will help
    i had a chat with another friend with a heavily modified erevo and he recons if u limited the shocks or the suspension from going to full droop that would help abit
    i think on full droop is when the axle pops out most fo the time
    apart from the axles popping out sometimes ive never snapped one
    end of the day there is no 100% fully reliable easy to fix cure for diffs and axles on this truck
    i just carry a small set of tools in a backpack each time i go out
    and having true track rear end fixing a popped out axle is really easy as it rarely happens on front

    With the losi mod you lose about 4 teeth on the pinion. Right now I mainly run 4s and 24/54 gearing so you can do 22/54 but maybe good for low 40's with the losi diffs
    Stock diff 20/54 low 40's and would take 24/54 to hit low 50's

    On 4s you should be good. I do dirt and hills and street no long grass or anything like that
    You know how it goes just check your temps first ride to see how it goes

    with parallel charging you lose the balance charge feature. ok once in a while but not all the time.
    i would go for an icharger and decent power supply

    Just got back from a good bashing tried out all my different tires and IMO the trenchers are terrible I love my badlands and my mashers but the trenchers were so unstable and to tippy feeling they were good at speed runs but that's about it
