Um, correct grammar please? I'm not understanding here. The motor relates to how fast the tires spin, not the axles, and if you went to a lower pinion and a lower spur you would have a similar gear ration, instead of a lower one.

based on my interpretation of what you might have tried to say...

different drive shafts wont change the speed the tires spin, they just give all of the power of the motor all at once, unlike the half shafts which tend to twist a little before catching up with the motor.

So what would the problem be then.

Your gearing is maybe too high? Getting a larger spur gear and a smaller pinion gear will lower your wheel speed...

are you saying that the axles are spinning, but not the wheels?

Did you put the drive pins in behind the hexes?

you really should re word what you are trying to say, and with proper grammar.
are your wheels/tires spinning at all? are they spinning out without getting traction? you may need to loosen your slipper clutch.

Sooooo, your tires are spinning extremely fast.....which means that your truck is now very fast.....the tires turned into pizza cutters due to centrifugal force.....

But the question is, did they explode or de-bond from the wheel?

It will appear, if your truck is on the stand, that when you give it some trigger that the tires cannot handle it.

Did you put it on the ground and try it? If you haven't changed any gearing, only the axle shafts, there should be no big difference other than maybe a very minimal increase in immediate power to the wheels themselves.

It IS a good idea to reset your slipper for the new axles as the settings WILL change with those new cvds.
