How are you breaking them? Get the good WCE ones and they wont break on you!

As Far as i know they dont. Do you have the updated thicker ones? If not, call hotbodies, send the shafts back and they will replace them for free with the new updated ones. if they still break then you need to invest in the WCE shafts

kyosho mp9 91mm axle somewhat fit but they bind up if you turn the wheel full lock at the full up stroke position of the suspension. for the price of the kyosho axles your better off with WCE they are much better material and will last 20x longer than stock.

i have a kit that is 2 years old that someone is letting me use and it still has the original shafts in it, he didnt run it hardly but still.... but i did snap one but it was because it popped out half way and twisted it but i highly recommend getting the WCE ones, they are almost indestructible

The Kyosho rears are a perfect fit in the front of the D8. They are a little long for the rear, there is a possibility that if you land badly on one wheel the shaft can bottom out in the cup.

Are the barrels worn out and need to be replaced when this snapping occurs? Where is snapping happening?

Oops. I misunderstood what you were asking. I don't think any Kyosho stuff will work unless it's MP9. I've heard but not verified that MBX6 center fronts fit, don't know about center-rear.

If you are running a D8?

This is what you are looking for -

HB67407 = 78mm = front center shaft

HB67408 = 105mm = rear center shaft

HB67405 = 91mm = f/r drive shafts

Hot bodies measures the shaft from the tip (Bone) to the end of the shaft not the CVD / ball.

I've personally never seen these pop out or just break - unless under bashing conditions. And even then, I've not seen a center shaft pop out.

Here's a tip - you can use the Lightning 2 pro drive axles in the D8 and they are much thicker and stronger then the first run of D8 axles. And they will sit 2mm deeper in the cups.
