Has anyone found another replacement for the front shock shafts? Maybe another manufacturer? As everyone else is going through the same thing, I am in need of a set of front shock shafts.

Is your buggy down from a broken one? If so, I've got a spare set. I'd like to hang on to one shaft just in case but I'll send you one if you need it to get back on the track.

Just send me a PM if you need it.

I just noticed that amain is showing D413 kits in stock right now. Better get one before I decide to buy one for spare parts.

i've never broken/bent a shock shaft and i've had the kit since release, but when i read about all these people saying their rig was down because of it, i went on ebay and ordered a set. it came from the UK in less than 10 days.

I have personally used them. They will leak. Others have said that they leaked for them and they got rid of them. For me, it only leaked for the first build. After the rings swelled with oil, they no longer leaked. So during the next rebuild, they were fine.

But I have gone to the Traxxas rings and so have others. I even used green slime and they have never leaked.

The HB tall servo horn is your best option

TLR with the ball in backwards. Makes the linkage line up more parallel
