Just got traxxas's steel driveshafts, man am I disappointed...
Guess I found the weakest link...
The carnage.. Not too bad
I guess the question is, where can I find a pin to replace the atomized one?
Thanks in advance
try a tiny drill bit cut to length. then maybe a lil bit of thread lock or shoe goo or something to hold it in.
was an o-ring holding it in?
That's just a fluke. Have been running them for over a year up to and over 65mph with no problems
The pin from a 7055 will work could get by with the right size drill bit

I had the same problem, gave out on second run... just the one broke and I put the plastic ones back in the front and kept the rears and they have held up great.

call traxxas support, from what i hear, they have excellent support in the US, maybe they can sort you out with what you need. its worth a shot
if you are still interested in steel driveshafts, integy makes excellent center shafts (version 2).
these are one of the few products that are solidly built by that company, i have had mine for more than a year, no issues with em. they also use a steel band to cover the pins rather than rubber, if there is a con, i would say that it is much heavier than the traxxas set.
I still say its not that common occurrence. I have heard of a few but not that many
Yeah, thanks for the opinions guys. I think it may have been a fluke too, right now I'm looking for something to replace it. I'll just look for a finishing nail and sand the head and point off. See if I can't find one that fits
a nail wont last long, the metal is too soft. You need hardened steel, like a drill bit. needle bearing pin maybee fit?
