Hey there folks, just joined the ecx forums. I've been in rc since I was about 10, I'm 38 now so I've got a fair amount of knowledge/fabrication skills when it comes to rc cars. I just finished my Barrage kit about two weeks ago and suffered my first breakage, other than a weak servo. I had a course laid out in my garage today since it was pouring rain here in KY. Part of the run was elevated about 4ft. Above the floor and I rolled off of that section and landed on one of the back wheels. It wasn't a hard impact, but it was literally focused on one wheel. When I picked up the truck I noticed the wheel was kicked off at a weird angle. The axle shaft had been bent where the drive pin passes through the shaft to engage the hex. I removed the wheel and carefully tweaked it back straight, but as I tightened the wheel nut the shaft snapped in two. Major bummer! My question is this. Is there another crawler out there with similar shafts that are a little thicker in diameter that could be modified to fit the barrage axle housings? I've got literally hundreds of spare dogbones and cvds from other models in the garage. I'm thinking about using a set of heavy duty shafts from my HPI Savage Big block truck. I figure I can lop off the end of the dogbones, thread it, drill it, and then grind the necessary flats on the inboard end of the shaft. Bearings with a larger I.D. would be necessary, but I think I could order some pretty easily. Has anyone tried anything remotely close to this? I would just order new stock shafts but they're back ordered until forever at Horizon and A Main. I've also got a pair of front cvd's from my belt driven SC10 4X4 Factory Team short course truck. They're massive compared to the Barrage cvds, bit if I could make those work it would be bombproof! I've hid the boards nearly WFO with that truck head on and I'd didn't phase those axles. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks folks!
