Question
RC Car Newb Here Stampede VXL 4x4 Drive Shafts

So Got the truck yesterday and was romping pretty good in back yard, and noticed lost part of rear wheel drive... Twisted rear drive shafts ... So seeing the upgraded metal, anything Else that i can do or when i upgrade these that would cause something else to break? Metal Diff's? or what is recommended?.

Thanks,

Dave

Generally, all you need to replace are the driveshafts(I went with Tekno's on my Backslash conversion). The rest of the driveline seems to hold up pretty well. It usually takes a fare amount of effort or a very big power system to get the shafts to twist. What motor and battery are you using that you managed to twist the shafts so quickly?

I replaced my (now sold) driveshaft on my pede 4x4. I put a center diff in to lower the stress on the drive shaft. Putting center diff in will sacrifice wheelies for handling. It is worth it if you just bash around not going through bogs or on rocks. I generally drive my pede on a racetrack; it is the car I drive when it rains.

the stock TRX driveshafts are plastic. Try these... they are EXTREMELY tough.

I wouldn't plan on running much with such a small battery, the amp draw will kill it in a pretty big hurry. A truck this size should have a 4000-5000mah battery minimum.
