Question AX10 Axels On A Losi Night Crawler Frame?

Im kind of a newbe so bear with me. I have a losi night crawler. I have been pleased with its performance but Im not to pleases with the axels (just dosent seem real/tought enough). I have some spare AX10 axles lying around and I got to thinking about putting those on the losi but was unsure if I could do that.....is that possiable or is there like a special adapter or something? MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE EVERYONE!

The problem is gearing.

The Losi axles are 25:1 drive-shaft to wheel while the Axials are something like 2.5:1, and the gearbox is designed to suit.
Therefore you need a ~10:1 additional gearing on the Losi box to make Axial's axles work.

I love the Losi axles though, once the friction is dealt with.

Ok, I have a 35t motor I am going to put it on the stock losi, there are 4 gears on the outside of the transmission and motor (one on motor, 2 idlers, and one on the transmission) will enlarging or making them smaller make it have good torque but quick speed when I need it? (Really don't want to get into the axels agin)

Not a good swap, just get some of the HD gears for the losi, or change to a complete axial setup

The stock motor is 35T as well. If you want it to go faster you just need more voltage available.
Might overheat the motor though (I've toasted two brushed 35T on 2S with my LCC), and it might require a new ESC.
