I have to carry a lot of the stub axles. The break frequently off large jumps.

Always wanted to switch to the RDracing larger axles but I never have.

Also I can't get the pillow balls to stay in the arms for very long. But racing the truck is very awesome.

A center diff will help get the truck set up the way you want it to feel. You will also need the rear brake setup when you put the CD in. As for servos, just buy a good strong servo with at least 125 oz. in. and a decent speed and you wil be fine. You are not limited to airtronics. They make awesome servos but many other do also. I use Ace, Futaba, JR and the occasional Traxxas (just for measuring things up though.) lol
