    Old school transmission and CVDs

    We have a stampede purchased many years ago (at least 8!) that we run from time to time. I've upgraded to brushless and a couple of parts here and there...

    The transmission is shot and there is no way to get the outdrives off, so I cannot split the transmission.

    I want to buy a new transmission and cvd's. Can someone help me with links?? I am not sure if the new vlx stuff will bolt on or whether I have to purchase the XL-5. Also, the MIP CVD models are a big question mark. I greatly appreciate the help!!

    The exact link of what Buzz provided, is what you need to swap out. If you're going to run a BL setup, than make sure to upgrade your tranny to the 272 magnum, all metal geared tranny. You need to upgrade it, in order to run BL, or you'll shred your stock plastic gears.

    As far as cvds, I would go the much cheaper route, pricewise, and just install a set of Slash 4X4 HD rear driveshafts, just order a set, for the left and right. Traxxas P/N 6852X.

    Thanks guys! Sorry I could not respond.

    I am brushless with the VLX system. I had MIP CVD's in but they are frozen in place and cannot be extracted. I just don't have the part number any more to reorder them..... Any ideas??

    When you say they're frozen in place, exactly where are they seized? Do you mean that you're unable to remove the grub/set screws from the ouput cups? Is that where it's seized....where the cups attach to the differential? Since the other end is where the axle attaches to the bone and a pin just slides in, to secure the bone to the axle.

    Is this the kit you're running?.........

    Did you use Loctite on the grub screws? If so, hopefully it wasn't the Red Loctite, because that stuff doesn't breakdown until it reaches 500 degrees.

    If the grub screws are seized, try heating them, and if that doesn't work, there's always drilling them out....That's always a fun job LOL

    I used blue locktite and have tried PB Blaster, heating, extractors and drilling them.... I am going to replace the transmission so I am happy to also replace the cvd's...

    Thanks for the link!! I think that is what I have, but without any specifications on lengths I can't be sure.

    Thanks again for your help!

    I'm pretty sure those are the cvds you're running. The other MIP CVD's are quite different looking, especially the X-Duty and Race Duty Aluminum and Steel, plus they're more pricey. But I'd recommend a different cvd kit than the P/N 08123, that you probably were running? I've run the 80123 on a couple of my Traxxas RC's, and have had problems with them, on both occasions.

    You might want to consider either an HR Steel CVD's.......

    Another good choice would be the MIP Aluminum Race Duty CVD's.......

    Or there's always the beefest of all cvds, the one I personally run on my rusty, and my slash platinum 4x4 (on both front & rear), the MIP X-Duty CVD's.......

    Good luck with whatever you choose.

    Which clutch does that old pede have? If its the old version, you will also need a new clutch setup for that new trans, or just buy a new trans that includes it(usually cheaper after buying both):

    For 7$ more, you get the clutch and a spur:
