    Question Rear drift shaft for my stampede 4x4...help please

    New to this forum.
    My son drives his stampede 4x4 vxl crazy, plastic drift shafts last only a week maybe 2.
    I am going to be purchasing the steel kind, but what brand should I buy?
    Traxxas? I heard of mip after googling for info. Not sure what to get, all I know is I'm going to need steel ones.
    Pros cons would be nice to hear. Thanks.

    +1 on the mip's. Just make sure you follow the instructions to assemble. Seems like a lot of people have had problems after improperly putting them together (as they don't come assembled) I also saw on mip's web site that they have a new 7075 aluminum version which are lighter than the steel counterparts. Enjoy!

    So aluminum or the steel? Yeah I know it's gonna be a pretty penny but I've boughten so many $11 each time the plastics break. I could have bought good ones.

    @ aluminum: I guess you missed this:

    I'd get the TeknoRC product. Much simpler and still bulletproof and will handle larger motors and higher cell counts than you are running right now.

    Dunno, but if you bend or break a stub axle, can you get a replacement, or do you purchase another complete pair?

    i don't know either - never seen them before - so unless they are big saving on the MIP or Tekno equivalent - don't bother!!

    P.s. I'm a female, gal, mommy, woman, lol. But no hurt feelings. My friend is into rc cars and got my son into them. So I'm learning a lil but and learning that everything is costly lol. His torment (first rc and second hand lol) is gone, prob esc and motor. And his stampede 4x4 is always needing drive shafts, and I got myself a traxxas slash and it's off limits lol. Next is hopefully a new summit or converting my slash into a erevo.

    Well Emb856 welcome to the forums. I would suggest you get the MIP X-Duty. Yes I know they're expensive but totally worth it. If you do decide to get them make sure you use loctite for every screw and let it dry for a few hours. Some people grease them but I don't. As you stated they last a week maybe two just imagine the cost of buying those they do add up pretty quickly. Anyways good luck in your decision.

    I just found a link in a thread for MIP X-Duty

    What's the loctite for? I looked it up, superglue of some sort?

    Do I need to buy any grease oil for the drive shafts? Hmm I'm lost

    Loctite is use for when metal to metal contact, what it does is to prevent the screw from coming out at hard bashing, only put a tiny bit at the thread area and let it dry overnight or few hours. I use blue Loctite and if I do apply it again I make sure I clean off the old dried Loctite before applying a new one.

    Mip recommends red thread lock for the mips and let them dry for 24 hours before use. And I use a dry silicon lube spray on the joints and have had no problems in over 2 years now. And you are one very cool mum indeed and just to let you know I call my wife dude sometimes......peace

    The back ones are the most important because they take most of the torque over the fronts and one day looking forward to getting my boy his own monster truck like a 2wd vxl pede just to start him off in the right direction......peace

    I just ordered the front ones!! My son had a day to use his new back axles because the front one broke. They were the plastic ones, so now it's the mip front ones. Hopefully nothing else breaks!! ��

    Don't ever count on it, but as he gets better at driving the frequency will drop. If available look for rpm replacement parts for some added durability over stock when needed.

    Yeah, I bought so much already. I put my slash on the side so he can have a back up to drive something else.

    The driveshafts and the stock bearing adaptor is the weak point of the pede.So if you have not upgraded the bearing adaptor do so and its a cheap fix part number 6893x and replace what breaks with rpm.......peace

    I bought the back axle drive shaft mip part. Does that consist of the bearing or is that something totally different? And the bearing part to replace steel?
