I'm sure there are tons of threads about this, but I honestly can't find them.
I just bought a used ERBE and I'm absolutely loving it, when it works. The rear drive shaft's pin keeps falling out, and I can't find a way to fix it. I've tried putting a metal pipe around it to hold it in, but when I crashed it kinda hard it just fell out anyways. Now I'm trying red loctite. What else can I try if this doesn't work?
Are you running stock shafts?
Alt-248 on the number pad = °
They're the Traxxas upgrade stainless steel shafts.
I put the loctite on about 2 hours ago and it doesn't seem to be drying at all.
If you can't find or make a replacement pin, then MIP CVD's would be my choice. I just bought the traxxas center and wheel CVD's and already broke one dogbone pin. Luckily I had some material in my hobby box that I cut and installed,fits sort of loose, but the rubber boot that goes around the diff cup seems to be holding it together for now. The replacements you are asking about I have never used so I can't give you an opinion. Good luck.

Loc-tite generally works well if the threads are clean. Use a Q-tip and clean the threads of the screw and in the cup. Use a small amount of loc-tite and let it sit at least overnight to dry. If need be, I have seen people put shrink wrap over the screw to help.

+1 on the shrink wrap works well and you don't lose the screw
I've finally realized its because the entire driveshaft is thrashed. I've ordered a new shaft set. What is the piece that the rear drift shaft connects to to drive the rear wheels? The hole in that piece is torn up too. Do i need to take appart the diff to replace that piece? Will need a new one. Thanks everyone.

do you mean the drive cup? or the diff
if its the part that sticks out of the diff then its the pinion
