S.s. 6mm outputs with the mip 6mm hubs. What do you use to attach the hub to the output. I see the hubs comes with set screws but the output comes with a hole in it like the newer style axial outputs. Thanks Mike.

You are correct.

I really like the Prolines, just really well built shocks.

Sorry if this as already been addressed but can you still run the servo on the axle using the vp axle truss ? Or do you have to run a cms kit ?

Axle truss

If you are talking about these then yes you can still run servo on axle steering.

how would you go about bulletproofing an ax2 transmission?? searched for it and not finding much information at all. access to parts in australia is tough so kind of want to get it right from the start. :-)

I wouldn't. I would go with a more solid and reliable trans. I haven't heard of how the HD shafts on that trans are holding up yet.

I'm not sure on the Traxxas version. If you are refering to the Robinson version many of us use than you need the SuperShafty Beefy Top Shaft.

Blew out the gears on my HS7954SH steering servo this weekend. Looking at either the HS7950TH or maybe the BLS172SV. Kinda don't want to spend $220 on a servo but if it's the best then so be it. I am running a VP CMS if that matters. Opinions?

It's unfortunate that the 157 is no longer available. If you can hunt one of those down then it would be worth a shot otherwise for cost reasons I'd have to tell you to buy the Hitec.

Just a matter of getting the new ads switched in, that's not my department.
