    Driveshaft upgrade

    So I've had my mini summit for almost two years now and I've broken atleast two inner shafts and six outer shafts and I'm really sick of it. So, are the merv steel driveshafts a direct fit? Thanks.
    That didn't sound good....

    I heard stories of the rear end pop out due to the longer shafts on the Summit, but I use them myself and never had that problem so far.

    I switched to the merv shafts about 2 weeks ago and they pop a joint every time it flips over or i pull a wheelie . Its really annoying but they just pop back in .

    Maybe the fact that I use alu knuckles makes a difference. Not sure.

    Ok, so is there a different upgrade that won't pop out etc?

    Hot Racing did make some slider shaft for the merv that would work but they change their design and now use dog bones shafts that dont fit just right. I'm still trying to find a set of the old ones myself.

    I think traxxas should just make a steel set for the mini summit.
