    I had a part fail. As some of you know, I have a set of MIP X-Duty axles from their first release. The last time I touched them was when they sent me a set of slotted axles to replace the pinned axles. Well the pin that holds the axle on broke off. I have replacement parts. I took a picture of the axle so you can see how much wear it has compared to the new one. I'll still keep the old for a spare but it's time to give it a rest

    I've have had the MIP slotted version of the X-Duty's for just over 3 years. I've had two of the male bell end pieces break in that time, both on the front.

    The first was due to a really bad one wheel lawn dart last Spring that bent the RPM arm really far and it just snapped where the pin goes through it:


    A week ago, when doing other maintenance, I noticed the other side was cracked at the same spot, but hadn't failed completely yet. I replaced it anyway:


    Hard to beat MIP for durability. Running 4S with a 1/8th esc/motor and 3.8" LP wheels/tires puts a strain on things though, so will see how well it does in the future.

    In my humble opinion, you would really have to look far and wide to find better axles than MIP! I read about how people don't get twenty minutes from their axles. I've gotten close to ten years and they are still going strong

    So I finally bought a set of MIP driver bits! These and my brushless Craftsman drill driver makes working on my trucks a whole lot easier

    Welcome to the club! As a compulsive tool snob, I highly recommend the full set. The ball end drivers are amazing, and the 1.5 (which it looks like you have) is the only hex that doesnít turn into a corkscrew doing up grub screws.

    I do have a few tools for my trucks. They are mainly MIP and Craftsman. There are some others mixed in. I always keep an assortment of spare parts on hand just incase. This is the toolbox I take with me when I run my trucks. I like to be prepared

    Wow! You're a walking RC garage! I bet there's almost half a car in there.

    To be honest with you, I have everything besides shock towers, chassis and tires. I like to be prepared

    Nice! I meant to post my go-bag like days ago:



    I bring different parts depending on what cars Iím running, but the base tool kit stays the same. I think the magnetic screw tray is the most important tool in the bag though!

    That poor toolbox couldn't keep up with all of the parts that I like to bring with me.

    I had a magnetic bowl but I haven't been able to find it since I moved. I need to go to a parts store and get a new one.

    I got 3 in different sizes for Christmas. Life-savers!
    Also got a stand, and a cart to put everything in! Haven't switched my stuff over to it yet, b/c we are renovating our garage, and my dad has a bunch of his stuff on my cart.

    Maybe she is jealous. That toolbox served its purpose for Many years
