Its funny--its actually not even worth buying a TLT anymore because all the goodies that you upgrade to replace all the stock parts anyways and the housings are like $4 a pop...

Crap yes, I use TLT axles in all but 1 on my builds and they are great. Just dump the stock tranny and start modding, you'll find what works for you in no time.

I use a big brushless outrunner on my TLT and I bent the pins in the hexes a few times but no broken cvd's.You need to try really hard to break cvd's,I twist stampede driveshafts from time to time but thats it.
