Several months ago, Arrma came out with a steel slipper hub sleeve (pic below) to help prevent the slipper shaft from splitting, but they have been backordered for some time. I finally got two of them to install into my two 3s vehicles. At only $2.99 each, it's worth a try.

Shoot, I wish I’d known as I would’ve sent you the one I have. I’ve heard that some people have problem with it because it’s a little bit too wide. If you end up having difficulty, just cut out the inner race from an old slipper bearing. I’ve been doing that for the last two years and haven’t had a rear hub fail since. The one below is the first one I put a race on two years ago. I just finally retired it.
