    Center driveshaft gear

    The gear that goes into the driveshaft (7755) on my xmaxx today snapped... does anyone know if there are upgraded versions of that piece? I canít seem to find any. I feel like there would be hardened steel ones out there or something?

    That doesn’t happen. Well you did it but. I’d say it is a fluke. Lots of highly modded Xmaxx out there running that connector with no issues.

    Hi
    That usually only happens when chassis has flexed a lot after a heavy landing and bent the prop shaft

    Yep. That's one of the parts hobby shops always have because no one ever breaks them.

    That's bragging rights.

    I think another person in a different post may of had one break. But I have not seen a follow up post.

    I think you just got lucky.....

    Can self harden with blow torch and dirty motor oil / shock oil. There be vids out there,. Know someone was doing it on the 6s diff gears. If I remember right used motor oil worked best as had extra carbon in it that would fuse to the metal.

    That makes sense, I figure Iíll replace it once and if it happens again Iíll go through the hardening, I got a buddy that just got into blacksmithing so Iíll just have him do it for me haha
