    mini e-revo center steel driveshafts

    so i got the entire set for steel driveshafts and put them in but after about 2-3 runs one of my pins in the center driveshaft slipped and i lost it...
    i dont know what do you think but for me that pin is a big flaw of design i mean if you run it on the street its probably fine but come on some bashing and it falls?
    anyway is there a way to make a custome one or get a new one coz a new 35$ kit is out of the question.
    thanks for helpers

    Just buy a 1.5mm steel rod from your LHS, cut it to length and file the end. It usually comes in 1m length, so you have life suplly of pins.

    Try to find a extension spring with a bit smaller diameter than driveshaft, cut 1-2 coils and use it instead of rubber o-ring

    I found from someone on this forum to use heat shrink. Put the heatshrink on the drive shaft prior to install. Pin, O ring then slide heatshrink over and heat. Mine have never come out. Simple and effective.

    I never manage to do this with shrink wrap over the o-ring, final diameter was too big. With just the shrinkwrap it doesnt hold (pin punched a hole through shrinkwrap).
    I`m still looking for the right diameter spring tho....

    Thanks guys but i found a good solution for it.
    just put some super glue on the rubber band just a little aand make sure your driveshaft dosent get stuck, if it dries without stucking problems you have a safe rubber band seal that would never come off.
    quick and easy

    Super glue is brittle and will break off. Probably instantly. Just do heat shrink and done.
