Default TLT-1 Axle question

i got a rig that has TLTs under it which i've come to find out are pretty hard to get parts for. What my question is are the F-350 shafts compatible with the TLT axles? I've been trying to do research on this and really cant come up with any solid info. I see some stuff is advertised to work between the two and some are individual. Any info would be awesome. my axles are in need of new shafts something fierce.I would like to spend a little cash getting this back up to speed than going out and buy axials and having to upgrade to where these TLTs are at now, which they came a little hopped up.

RCP crawlers has MIP CVD's that are made for TLT axles , You'll get more steering using them.They will last longer also.

No, they are slightly longer and will bottom out in the drive cups. If you can find TLT CVD's for the front they will work nicely. You may still be able to find straight rear axle shafts through some vendors here. If not post up a wanted ad, some have a "few" sets of TLT's taking up space at the bottom of a parts box. I see them for sale/trade here often.

TLT axles are great! The honestly started the scale aspect of RC crawling. Ive been using them for almost as long as RCC has been around. They held up to 2.2 comp rigs until tire compounds got so sticky. RCPcrawlers and Tower have carried parts for them and I believe still do. Also check TCS crawlers.

Enjoy the rig!

Contact Dave at RCP Crawler to see if he still has the solid ring and pinion gears for them.
