well first off i dont mean to be rude but you only gave people 2 hours to answer a question. try and do a search yourself. google is your friend. get off your lazy but and look.
most of them are probly out racing their slashes.

to answer your question yes i am sure there are some out there since they use the same ones as the rustler and stampedes.

might want to try and loosen up your slipper. as i broke one of mine that way on a rustler runnning on dry pavement.

Dude, settle down. Someone will reply. You only waited like two hours between posts. It's not like everyone is here for you only. Also, asking in the Slash Thread might get a quicker response. Gets old real quick when people keep creating new threads for one question. Using the Slash Thread keeps the boards much cleaner, especially for you one situation.

chill scooter breathe...

The Slash is one of the toughest trucks out there for sure. I would take the advice of loosening the slipper clutch about .5 turn to start out with. This should solve your problem. If not then maybe look for the aftermarket axles for the Stampede as I believe they are a direct fit. Remember patience is a virtue my friend. Happy Holidays and stick with the Slash its a great truck.

Thanks for the info...There are just some people who push my buttons...I tryed to adjust the slipper when I first put it in...Its either slipping or going..No in between...It was wild for about 20sec. though!

You probably just got a bad axle. They dont last long with the vxl and 3s, i usually can go about 6-7 runs before something breads on my stampede vxl. what the weak points are, are the stub axles. they are cheap, just get whatever you broke and try it again.

when you hit the trigger to go are you getting any slippage at all? or is it just a wheelie full power?
it sounds like you have it too tight.
are you going from rev to foward when it breaks?
please explain under what conditions that the axle breaks.

It was breaking under full throttle at a dead stop..Or when it came off the ground and came back down..I tryed to adjust the slipper at first, and it would slip or catch..There was no in between...I took it apart and put it back together, now I think I have it right..It wont pull wheelies, but it doesnt break!! It accelerate's nicely also...Just no wheelies....It gonna be hard to out run everyone anyway with the front wheels in the air
