the female is the outer part of the shaft ... the male slides into the female. to be more specific, male is the one with a corrugated shaft. hth

Thanx dude. I'll go that path if I cannot get the exact measurements for the lower and upper link if fixing the revo shaft without cutting it.

It's tough to give you a set length for the links, it all depends where you're mounting them on the chassis and axles. I run a 60/40 link set-up, my front uppers and lowers are the exact same length, same with the rear links. The fronts measure 4 3/8" and the rears are 5 5/16", I'm running just under a 17" wheelbase with the stock rod ends. The stock Revo shafts fit fine, until I rotated the tranny, then I had to lengthen the rear shaft.

Click the "Photo Gallery" link in my sig for pics of my set-up.

Thanx bender. Really appreciate it. I tried eye-balling the length of new links required for my TXT but am aafraid i'd make the mistake of miscalculation. Will check yout your photo gallery for ideas....hope you dun mind;)

Ok....after much thought and trial and error, I've decided to cut the revo shafts to fit in the TXT without extending my WB. But then, after fixing the revo shafts, I found that only 1 side of the suspension can only flex like before while the other side's flex is reduced. In other words, it can only articulate as a stock TXT does on the front right and rear left whereas the front left and rear right, the articulation is restricted. Why is this happening? I couldn't see anything getting in the way of the suspension. But why is it not articulating evenly?

Sorry guys for the trouble. Since I'm only crawling by myself, this is the only place I can source for information. Thank you very much.
