May I ask what system did you replaced it with and what driveshafts are you using so that they don't pop out?

Hmm, I have one, ran it only on 2s ever since I bought it. After less than 8 battery packs it popped one from the rear ones. I did bought 3s batteries later on but now I'm worried to even try. So you on the stock plastic ones?

If it ain't broke, you're doing it wrong.

Get the 1/16 Summit driveshafts or if money is no object the Traxxas cvds. And do not run it on 3s everything will break.

May I ask what's the difference between the summit ones and the merv ones? They both look like the same plastic to me. I did bought the gpm metal ones since they were cheaper and beffier than Traxxas cvd's, but it's all accumulating dust for now, no time to work on it still. I also have a rustler 4x4 vxl and had exactly the same issues with the stock plastic axles. Have a arrma vorteks and the same problem too. These stock plastic cvd's are way too much problem for these cars, that's a reason why I didn't bought the Maxx either. Meanwhile in my kraton, talion and nero, all 6s models no problems with those.

Yes the Summit ones are still plastic but are a bit beefier than the Merv ones. It's literally comparing the stock Arrma 3s driveshafts to their cvds.

This is what the Merv ones look like.

These are the Summit ones.

And don't get me started on the 3s driveshafts, that style of driveshaft has been known to have a weakness for 20 years prior to Arrma releases the 1/10 4x4 platform, they felt the need to reinvent the wheel when it came to the rest of the car but went with those same crappy universal joint plastic crap driveshafts that everyone else uses.

Hmm interesting, I already bough gpm ones, should they fail I'll try those. I feel the same about the arrma 3s line shafts, I did bough a pair of upgraded arrma cvd's (pricy) and Hot Racing ones (pricier) but haven't installed em yet either. Thanks for the feedback and tip. Free bump for seller.
