You can custom order two rear or whatever you need just talk to Eddie and he'll get you setup.

Are those Axial rear shafts the updates ones? Don't know if you've read the thread or not, but the short shaft on the rear axle has fitment issues causing poor gear mesh between the ring & pinion. May want to give it a read of you haven't already. I have a new short side inbound from Axial myself.

Wraith Rear Short Shaft Issue
Thanks for the heads up but I already installed them and had no issues and I have the felsenfest lockers and there locked down tight. The lockout went on and screws went in no prob. Guess I got lucky!

Since I bought mine as an RTR, I don't know how it was put together or anything, but I do know that I smoked the stock 20T Axial motor in 2.5 packs. Had heat issues with the Traxxas 12T 550 Titan I put in it, too. The Integy 35T V11 Pro I'm running now doesn't get hot as fast, but it does still get hot, which tells me something has been binding and everything else I've looked at has been normal as far as I can tell. I did pull my rear axle apart this past weekend and when I put it back together, I did have a little trouble with the lockout. Not to where I couldn't get the screw back in, but it wasn't all the way on, either. I took a Dremel to the collar on the short shaft to thin it down some, so that should work until the new shaft comers in. I'm hoping this takes care of my excessive heat issue. Otherwise....I'm in the dark.

Got some more goodies today!! It's hard to keep up with VP on there products so many coming out. Got rid of the red besides the calipers just got tired of it. Thanks to all that made out with some good deals on my parts sale in the classifieds.

Even though I'm sure the ones I had were good the VP's make it even better.

Now I gotta find some more money for the lockers and the $$$$$ coming out soon.

I really need to watch the throttle more lol
In the pics I didn't fix the hood, it's all jacked up in the rear.
More ideas today and will be executed shortly the weekend.

Made my own huge assembly mat out of a 24"X36" dry erase bouts from Hobby Lobby. This cost me $11.99 and then 30 percent off. I may spend a lot on the rig but not on my supplies.
