    Driveshaft metal thingy problems

    Dear Leadies and Gentleman,

    Ive bought a Teton as christmas present for my sun.
    That thing is really fun for both of us
    Did some videos too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoE-bn2Kuw8

    BUT theres something i noticed:
    After a few (3-4) runs in training mode i noticed the a little metal thingy is almost fell out of the plastic part i think is called "driveshaft".
    I linked a picture to show what part im talking about:

    First the right rear and later the left rear parts are started to fall out during operation.
    The front parts are still intact.
    Im prity sure its not good.
    Now i need to check it every five minutes to not loose the things.
    We also plan to do outdoor runs in sport mode, i think it will be risky with those parts.
    What should i do?

    Best regards!

    Ben

    What I did was use super glue to hold them in place. Those are small pins that keep the axle in the differential outdrive. The axles are also called driveshafts. Now I use steel axles, and the pins don't fall out on those The original plastic axles/driveshafts kept snapping on me.
    Doesn't need to be fancy. Just needs to run.

    Dear Bill,
    Thank you for your reply.
    Today morning one of the driveshafts just torned apart about 1,5 centimeters from the pin and i also lost the pin.
    It sems there are no other way just to replace it.
    Where do you get the steel axles from?
