    Mmmm... I'm not too sure. The design of the locating pin wrapped in rubber is very poor
    I'm ordering these as a replacement



    This happened to ours today

    I tried to order the HR CVDs the other day but during checkout it said the last ones were purchased already. I will have to try when I do my next order.

    Thumbs up

    I'm still on factory axles and drive shafts. other than popping an occasional u-joint, no real issues. and even that can probably be remedied by loosening the slipper a bit. definitely no catastrophic issues likes others have witnessed with aftermarket stuff. and I'm tough on my truck. tight slipper, heavy on the trigger.

    I run the HR Axles and have had great luck with them. No issues so far on my Merv.

    anywhere we can buy the rubber o rings for the traxxas ones without buying a whole rebuild kit ?
    I'd like a pack of 20 or so, they get eaten after only a couple of hours

    so here I am again replacing all the rubber o rings
    I'm also having the pins inside snap....I've pulled out the two rears and they are in half.
    Would anyone know of a more durable replacement pin ?
    Steel rather than weak aluminium I would guess would be fine
    Ideally I'd like to be able to buy a bag of pins rather than a rebuild kit as I don't need any other part
    Thanks

    Measure the diameter and find some hardened rod to cut to length?
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Alu is bad for pins, get 1.5mm steel rod from LHS and cut it.

    Steel rod sounds like a plan, thanks

    Reviving an old thread here. I have been running the Traxxas Steel CVD's for about 2 years. Last night was the first time I've ever thrown a pin. Somehow the rubber retainer shifted allowing the pin the come out, then it shifted back into place. I thought for sure I had broken the pin but it was simply just gone. The retainer was still in place so it must have moved out of the channel then moved back. Bummer you can't just buy the pins. I read about buying and cutting the rod after I had already ordered the kit. Next time I will look for some rod to cut. Also, may try heat shrink on the pins instead of the rubber retainer. I did that on my Rustler and it has been holding up very well...

    So I fabbed up a new pin out of a heavy duty body clip from my 1/10th Summit. A quick test run around my street and it held up. We'll see how it does doing backflips off ramps lol

    Just tried Yea racing drive shafts and no go. The tires won't rotate, install the stock and no binding. Anyone else try these yet? I'm sending mine back
