    Just buy the extended drive cups and screw your pillow balls in a little more (no thread visible).


    Bash it like someone else has to fix it!

    I figured it out. I had my tie rod on the inside hole so I moved it to the middle, should help it not fall out

    Are the extended cups just for the rear or can they be used for the fronts too?

    I've Had The Same Problem. You Need Traxxas Part #5153R. This Will Fix The Issue. With The Long Travel Rockers On Though The Shaft Will Rub On The Cups When The Wheels Are Off The Ground. Or If The Links Are In The Inner Hole. Not To Much Of An Issue, But it does cause the car to nose dive slightly when jumping. I put mine in the middle hole like the stock setup and put back on the P2 rockers. Since then not one has fallen out. The drive line occasionally might bend slightly but they bend back easily. Hope this helps and best of luck.
