The AX-10 tranny is very high quality. They make a great tranny for just about anything.

How much are those parts I looked and could not find them on the site. .

It probably will clear a 48p 87t spur.

~If you have a wide skid plate you may incounter clearance issues with the driveshafts because the transmission is only about 1.5" from one end of the outputshaft to the other.
Newb here. It kinda sucks that I found just rightnow that revo shafts don't fit on AX-10 Trans. I ordered the revo shaft because I read here that the stock ax-10 driveshafts pops out very often. I've also read about the RC4WD adapter but I live in asia and it may take a long time and more money just to buy and ship myself those adapters. :-(

Are there any better alternative Driveshaft I can use for the AX-10 that doesn't pops-out as easy as the stock driveshaft. Something that would clear the spurgear of AX10 Trans? And something that doesn't cost above $25.00 if possible...

IF YOU DO Not want to use the rc4wd adaptor with Revo shaft then use Jato shaft
basically the small version of the revo

Do you happen to know the stock number for the Jato shafts? Is the Jato shaft beefier than the stock AX-10 driveshaft? How about the T/Emaxx shafts? Anyone tried those yet?

As far as beefy-er the stock plastic t/emaxx outdrive shafts are a bit beefy-er, I'm not surehow to mount them up though. I just got my AX-10 roller built, (god I love building kits, just does it for me... almost as much as running it. ) still sorting out the electronics and deciding on the important out of the box mods... I was talking with a couple different people that said there is a traxxas shaft setup that is the way to go. Apparently the Axial folks were running them on their rigs at the last rubicon comp. Anyone know details about that?

Cheers,

Rob

Traxxas shafts and the steel yokes. They are awsome.
