    The first ones don't waste your money on.

    The MIP are ok, some love'em, some hate'em & will run you a C note & they must be bulletproofed.

    The Traxxas CVD's are a good option too.

    Losi LST2 CVD's are very strong but they require mods to the axle carrier's or replacement with Tekno carriers & have to be used with 17mm hex's.
    Look out for the tree/crunch!

    LiPo? Naw NITRO!!

    I just did an upgrade from a t-maxx converted to an e-maxx and am running the forward only and single speed conversion in my transmission accompanied with the Kershaw Designs 2500kv Leopard 120amp esc combo with 3s 6400 80c lipo packs and am now victim to my first broken rear axle.

    Will these axles work on the t-maxx hub carriers?

    Depends on which model T Maxx's drive train you are using, the MIP & Traxxas CVD's are drop in for the 4909, 4908/07.
    The THS THS320 are another good choice for the 3.3 style drivetrain.

    Using these axle carriers.


    If your still using the old style then you need either to upgrade to the new or use a CVD made for the old style.
    Like the THS~THS310, MIP #1525

    5141 & 5143 are toe links. I found 5154, 5155 & 5187. 5154R looks like a complete kit minus driveshafts.
