    THS or RDL Axles

    Ok, with the instillation of the RC8T shocks I have to get rid of the stock axles.

    So, which would be better??? THS or RD Logic. I have found both on the bay.

    THS roughly 50-55 dollars
    RDL roughly 35-40 dollars

    Thanks for the input.

    Sure.

    I also found these from integy, I just wonder if they are any smaller in diameter, because the springs will rub on the RC8T springs.

    I want something different, my buddy has the Traxxas CVD and bent all four with in the first 10min. I am only changing because the RC8T shocks that I have rub the stock slider shaft axles. And I dont want to pay 60 bucks for something that will not hold up.

    eh.. i guess he bent them on a table vise!.. neither of the ones you posted are as good as traxxas CVDs.. but if you want between those then get the THS.

    No, we were at our track and he jumped about 10ft in the air and landed on all 4 tires, good landing too. Then he noticed that he had a clicking sound and looked the truck over and all were bent . Bent, well really warped or bowed, he was pretty upset, but he straightened them out the best he could and is still using them.

    I have beat the poop out of my traxxas cvds and never bent one yet, but I have gone through 7 chassis. So I recommend traxxas

    I like the traxxass but I too bent mine easily. I recommend MIP:http://www.miponline.com/MIP/Traxxas_Hop-Ups.html

    Rd logics uses the ame cheap overseas metal as integy. Is it good? Well as with lost things, you get what you pay for. If you watch eBay, MIP can be had for a great price.

    What about the MIP pins "egging out" the universal joint, I have heard that this has been an issue with some people???

    Yeah I was never able to keep my MIP CVD pins in. Solder does a decent job of fixing that.

    I really want to hear some feed back on these: Check it

    Junk.. someone in the e-revo forum was using them and said they are made of weak metal.. he showed some pictures of them being snapped at the axle and stuff.

    I ground a flat spot on the cross pin to give the set screw something to bite on to. That has worked best for me.

    Yes, I am still running Titans. So long as you grind the flat spot deep enough (so that the pin cannot slide because it catches on the set screw) and you use thread locker on the set screw and tighten it well, the flat spot should do the trick. It works on my BL Rustler, too.
