    Traxxas hardend TiNi Shafts!

    I sure hope they last longer than the stock silver ones, I just spent 2 hours rebuilding 16 shocks! All but 3 fronts had bent shafts, now they all have hard shafts and STRC caps. Bashin' tomorrow and hoping for the best!

    Does anybody know, are they really much better than stock?

    I was thinking about getting those, I frequently bottom mine out at a local skate park, and recently broke one. But the guy at my local hobby shop said that for what I was doing the stock shocks were fine.

    I've had those shafts on my big bores for almost 6 months now and they are great, they never bend and they are way smoother. the stock shafts lasted 1 week

    I was hoping you guys would say that, I was going to get the big bore kits but I already had the STRC caps and with 3 trucks going I figured the shafts would be the best bet (saved $100). And now I have an extra matching set in the box just in case!

    I've been running the same set of TiN shafts on my slash for over a year now, through skatepark jumping (12ft drop to asphalt), stone quarry bashing, racing, lots and lots of landings gone wrong, and not a scratch on them.
