    slash 4x4, now a 2x4, is it still good to drive?

    today, i crashed head on into a vending machine and broke the front drive hub, so now its a 2 wheel drive, it still drives and turns, but no drive in the front. being that its only 2wd, can i still drive it, or will it be to much stress on the rear now? its gonna be a few days til im able to go the the hobby shop, and in the mean time id still like to enjoy it, but not if its gonna put to much stress on it

    You will be fine to drive it as a 2wd, no problems should arise but get to the Hobby Shop ASAP, 2wd is no comparison to 4wd haha

    The best thing to do would be to save for a bit longer and purchase MIP or TeknoRC Drivshafts, they are a huge improvement over stock

    Was it a plastic or metal piece? I read on the Mip site that they are also supposed to make that part. You will be fine. 2wd will not hurt anything.

    It'll handle like total garbage, though.. completely different weight distribution and more drag in the front wheels than a real 2wd.

    no worrys afol2524, i do plan on getting MIP eventually, and arakon, it doesnt handle that bad, and elsob, its good ti know that being a 2wd, doesnt harm anything, but hitting a concrete car stopp, bent the front right shock shaft, luckily i have proline powerstrokes on the way

    You should put the tmaxx 2.5 drive shafts very strong and little modding to get them to work perfectly.
