Question in search of 5mm rear scx10 axles

i have vanquish vvd that have 5 mm axle nut shafts . i am looking for rear axle shafts that are 5mm to match the front . i dont want 5 mm front and 4mm rear due to ocd . stock axle shafts are 4mm . looking for help . i have three sets of vvd so i will need three sets of rear axles. any help would be great . i cant believe vanquish makes 5 mm front but not a rear.

I could be wrong but I thought I saw (I'm not searching 19 pages, you can do that) that Creeper Bob will do a HD titanium axle (5mm) on request.

Or you could buy the 4mm stubs from VP and run those instead of the 5mm in front. That's what I did when I got tired of 2 different sized wheel nuts on my rig and realized that there was no need for the 5mm stub.

Titanium is not a good material for axle shafts...good quality steel is what you want.

Or ....

5mm Scale front hubs:
Ultra Hubs - Front M5


And 4mm Scale rear hubs:
Ultra Hubs - Rear M4


That way you can easily tell them apart ... and everything looks awesome.

Good hardened steel is in fact stronger then titanium. I see a lot of guys on here that think titanium is indestructible and the strongest metal available. The appeal of titanium is the strength to weight ratio. Its just a hair heavier the billet aluminum but much stronger. When it comes to 5mm axle shafts either one should be plenty strong. Maybe with a heavy rig, oversized 2.2 tires, big power and a mean trigger finger they could break but under normal driving they will both be great.
