    Breaking axles

    Hey all I was wondering what kind of axles ppl are running on their revos. I'm just running 4s and have been breaking them pretty consistently. I looked at traxxas axles but they're a bit expensive. I would still buy them however if they were strong axles.

    The best axles from what I've heard is the full size Summit's driveshafts. You can get them here. The short ones will be stretched out a bit, but they should still work. The best option would be to find a set of 4 long drive shafts.

    Those summit axles do look like a good improvement. I'm running everything on the truck stock right now. I've only had it for about a week.

    So P2 rockers,

    I have not, but have read that they like to bend. & the shafts pop out of the cups once in awhile..

    traxxas driveshafts are ok but if you want to never worry about them again, get the mip driveshafts and you will never have a problem again on 4s, but they are pricy.

    I use mip and the only problem I have had is that one has bent but I just hammered it straight. I have also used the traxxas steel shafts. Those actually bend easier and I have broken at least 3 of the pins that goes into the cup.
