    replacement for 7251

    I snapped my 7251 or rather the ball popped out. I'm not sure why as I'm pretty gentle but anyways...

    What the best replacement that's been cooked up?

    You could use the drive shafts for the mini E-Revo.

    Are they a direct swap?

    I don't mean to bring this thread back from the dead but after some forum searching it seems better to necro this thread rather than creating a new one.

    I broke a 7251 on my new brushed Summit and have read that the 7151X kit won't work because the wider wheelbased Summit causes the balls to pull out when using the 7151X's. Is this true? What's the best alternate outer driveshaft for the mini Summit?

    This is true. The axles will pop out. However, it is not the wider wheel-base. I installed mini E revo A arms in mine, and the axles still pop out. The only way to fix this is to install the mini E revo rockers. The more suspension travel you have, the more you are likely to pop out an axle. It's not the best solution, given that you probably want to keep the summit a summit, but it works.

    You can also upgrade to stock merv driveshafts. They are much stronger, and don't break as often.
