You can use zip ties as a ghetto way of keeping them on.

Or get some of these:

Or spend some coin and upgrade your shafts.

You and get the Traxxas part #1953 they work. Use 2 males and cut the end off the female and install. I like the MIP drive shafts the best. Matt

I would go with the MIP's. Almost bulletproof.

i run stampede shafts with a goat brushless and have had no trouble at all with the shafts. you can get a bag of 6 or so sets for right around 10 bucks, but I'm still on my first set

X2 They are THE way to go! I love mine, and they add weight down low as well. Big side benefit

I love my MIP's for sure! No more traxxas or axial.

However, i like the axials a little for scale build.

I really like the MIP's on my other R/C stuff but, this time I tried these shafts from jun fac a little less expensive and have not had one problem.

The Junfac one's look like an exact copy of MIPS.

Anyone know if the splines run all the way up, as opposed to the MIP's way? Could be easier to cut them down to use for DIG's

I was just thinking that. I was able to cut down my short MIP to work with my dig but, I think that the full length are not splined all the way down.
