I believe if you use the upgraded parts (Pin retainers) the set screws that hold the pins in are not needed. Mine did not fit either, but I changed over to traxxas shafts.

the upgraded kits have retainers for the cvd's and for the drive shafts...

You have to have the set screws to hold drive shafts on but on the cvd's axle shafts you dont...

Can you turn a venom creeper into a venom safari creeper by putting a frame or chassis on it

A Venom Safari is a Creeper...with frame rail kit bolted on top and a body and a dig unit.

Does the Traxxas 2056 servo come with a servo arm or do you have to buy one?

A 2056 only has 80 oz/in of torque..do you plan on using it for the dig or steering? It isnt even close to being a steering servo except for maybe a mini rc.

No...if it was pre-wired it would say so...or if it came with wire it would say so. It a selling point in advertising.

i want a more scale rc and i already have the venom creeper so i think i was going to turn the venom creeper into the safari creeper but i dont know what parts to get and could you mount the shocks of the venom creeepr straight up and down by mounting them to the frame. i want the frame rails and everything because i want to put a chevy blazer body on it.

Some small aluminum angle or flat bar from the local hardware store can make a cheap and very strong scale ladder frame.
