Traxxas does not sell just the pins in these driveshafts if they break. Well mine broke while running 2s lipo. I cant afford to buy new ones and I dont care to be without a my car to send them back. Does anyone ran into this problem and been able to find pins maybe for another set of axles that will fit these? It would be nice if I could find a piece of this hardened steel material and cut them to size? I was thinking of a drill bit?
Thanks a bunch!
Im not sure of the size of the pins but you may be able to find some dowel pins that are case hardened and then cut to length. Thats what i had to do for my suspension pins. And fully hardened steel breaks and cracks more than than a cold or hot working steel. Unless you have a cnc turning lathe and some S7 round stock!!

the rebuild kit is 15.00 list price and part number 7055
they do wear out comes with o ring ,pins and stub axles
Thanks for that info. I see it on ebay for 1330 shipped. I am going to try piano wire and maybe a drill bit just because I am curious now. Then if it doesn't work I will get the rebuild kit
Buying whole set for just pins would be insane.
Get a steel wire 1.5mm in your LHS or hardware store, usually sold by 1m.
Cheap lifetime supply of pins
Wouldn't be insane because if you look close I bet the pin holes are ovaled out and worn
I thought the title was familiar... then I started looking for my post... then I realized that the OP posted in multiple forums.
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
