OH great Bigdodge, Now I am all types of confused.

Maybe I will build one set the Dr.'s way and the other set your way. It will be a shock shoot out. I will declare the winner when I dont have any more bent shafts.

THE RACE IS ON!!!!

I bent stock ones to on a tree branch.

Traxxas 2656T (XX-Long) are the rears

Traxxas 1664T (Long) are the fronts.
Thanks, Are these the tiNi ones, the hardended ones?

I think I will order some since the lhs didnt have them in stock.

Went to the track today and it seemed like both trucks performed fine. I really couldnt tell the difference between the two.

I will know more when I do a tear down to clean.

Thanks for the advice.
I love this forum.

Yes, they're hardened steel that's titanium nitride coated.

guys2nv,

Seems like a traxxas way of doing things.

Make the stock shafts butter so you have to buy the strengthened ones.

Just put them in the freaking kit/RTR and adjust the price accordingly.

It was the first failure point on my slash and it didn't take much to bend it.

Well I went to the track yesterday. I took the shocks off today to clean the truck and it looks like I have bent the FRONT shafts. These are the stock shocks with green losi springs and I think 30 wt oil. They didnt bend much. Just down at the bottom where they screw into the shock screw thingy. You can barely tell.

I am wondering if I should go with the tini shafts or up the oil weight.

Thanks,
Rich

Get the hardened shock shafts. Not only do they not bend but the TiNi coating looks sweet.
