Default Dumb question possibly

Dumb question possibly. I have a Bender Customs SW 2 chassis and i'm going to stuff a VXL pede transmission. Can the axles handle a brushless system? It'll be a Leopard motor, which I believe is a 13T. I did search but didn't find much on what the limit was. Thanks.

Yes. I have a similar setup as long as it's a sensored combo. You should be fine. However above 15 MPh idk mines about 8 tops

They're surprisingly stout but when ya break parts, and you will, they're getting harder to find. It's only typical Tamiya pot metal gears. Probably gonna break outer stub axles also, at the cup. And axles cases at the C that the knuckle bolts to.

There upgraded parts still out there to make it a little beefier? If not, guess i'll stock up on parts.

5 years ago they were scarce. Now, I have no idea. The Internet might. Even then, some of those parts weren't really much of an upgrade anyways.

RPP and RCP are good starting points. Hi Lift gears and outer axles are the same. TG10 outers work also.

Look for RC4WD derlin or aluminum housing and MIP CVD's. I put a post out in the wanted section and had like 8 freakin' axles in 2 weeks. People out there for sure have some laying around the bottom of some parts bins :P

I've ran one of those too, they're good for both a comp setup or a scale rig
