I'm in the same boat. Mine's been on the shelf for month's while I've been looking for NOS.

I managed to weld the busted CVD into a "straight shaft" for the rear and then put the rear CVD up front. But that only lasted till I busted the same side again...

i can't remember exactly which ones they were, but I'm fairly certain I used a set of MIP shafts made for a Traxxas (I'm guessing slash or rustler). Maybe try to get measurements of the 2 and see if they work.

Great info! If there's not a thread for "still available replacement parts for creeper" thread, there definitely should be.

Its unfortunate that, unlike axial and hpi, that use the same diffs, the creeper does not share parts with anything at all. The only way to get spares These days is to buy a whole creeper for spares. There was a guy called CreeperBob who made titanium shafts to order who i asked about it a year ago, but back then it was cheaper to buy a whole kit and get 4 spare cv's

Yeah, I wish someone would make cvd's for the creeper. Mines gathering dust still, which is a shame because otherwise its been a great truck.

Somehow a few individuals have shoehorned axial xr10 c-hubs, knuckles and shafts onto the venom housing. I managed to rather easily fit the c-hubs, but couldn't figure out a proper engagement of shaft inner tang to diff spool. Thought about possibly sticking an axial iron cross mini-spool inside the venom carrier with plenty of JB Weld. If only I hadn't spooled it from the start with JB Weld this theory might be easier to test.

I'm curious as to how others made the axial shafts mate to the venom guts?

I just got me some straight titanium axles from Creeperbob. The axles work very well with the Hot Racing rear lockouts. Now I have the original rear CVDs as spares . Maybe this works as well for you.
The titanium axles are top notch and fit spot on. Creeperbox is a great guy to deal with. I am highly satisfied.

Crawl on,
