    Help with axels please

    What is the secret to keeping the pins in at the output yoke? I have had it with these MIPs! I have lost so many of these pins and sometimes the female end also. I used red loctite and I put heat shrink tubing over the outside as an extra measure. So tired of loosing these and lost one right off the bat today. I have replaced over $100 in parts on axels that already cost $100.

    I am going to be looking for some new axels. We are running 4s with a Dewalt so it's not like it's rotating as fast as it could be. I have lost them out of my Stampede 4x4 also and went with the Traxxas CVDs on my new Slash to avoid the MIPs.

    I know People have luck with MIP so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    What's wrong with the stock shafts? With the correct slipper setting they work fine with the Dewalt

    I second Joel's response.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    The stock ones work just fine for me with the DeWalt and 4s lipo. If you want you can even buy aluminum axles too.

    I may go back to those but have broken so many of them. I thought the MIPs would be a solution to this. Turns out when I broke it down it had snapped the pin this time, the set screw had held but the pin was snapped on both sides with the piece still held in the middle.

    I've had great success making my own cups for the stock axles. I run brushless on 6s. Never broke one since. If you have access to a drill press they are pretty easy to make. I posted pictures on "what did you do to your summit today"

    I've been running the Dewalt for almost 12 months now and have had a few runs with mud slingers and haven't broken one yet touch wood. Take some time to correctly set your slipper and you will experience next to no drive train problems like me and most forum members.

    Those won't fit because of the T-Lock. One side is longer than the other. Those are what I was hoping for though.

    As he asked though, 2 will fit... I just don't recommend it.


    The LEM axle pictured above is an old design...
