    Traxxas CVD pins keep flying out

    The small pins that hold the Traxxas CVD driveshafts together keep flying out every single time I run my Merv and itís getting so annoying.. Is there any solution to this problem? Iím ready to just put the plastic shafts back on because the plastics on my other Merv havenít broken when running 3s.

    The pins are held in place by a rubber seal.

    Yeah. Theyíre held in by the rubber o-rings, but they keep snapping the main housing and flying out. I probably shouldíve mentioned this earlier

    Isn’t there like a hack with wire heat shrink to prevent this?

    I've used a small band of heat shrink to hold mine in on my Emaxx when they were backing out and it works great, never lost one since.

    Small drop of ca glue could work as well.

    Same, I have done this for years on numerous vehicles with great success.

    Iíve never used a heat shrink for anything before, so maybe I should give this a try
