Don't get me wrong all my other cars are all shafties but they outlast the yoke's axle 10 to 15 times. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I overcome this problem by mounting the middle graphite stiffener without the blue aluminium posts at all. Joined them together and locked them with 12mm countersink screws and flange nuts. The chassis will be much stiffer against frontal impact which often cause your problem. I've been using that idea for 3 months and my SSG still going strong.

Hi PMR,

Just out of curiousity, is it breaking on both the front axles (left and right?) or just one side only? And where does it break on the axles? Does both the pin and the axle break? or just the pin?

Try getting the Hard Front Universals. Part #ZS-010FH. You will have to grind the ball down to the pin. Be careful not to grind down too far or the pin will come loose. The hardend universals are very strong and if you bend them you can straighten them with a hammer and a hard surface. They also last much longer than any other axle as well. As Matt said you should also get the larger front bumper too.

My experience is ALWAYS the pins. It just break for no apparent reason at all and it will also break while I'm making a dash down the straight.......only realise it when entering the corner after the straight.........no traction.

I've broke 2 pins simultaneously too........one in the straights and the other 2 corners after that !!

I just pack up the yok and whip out my trusty TC3.

hmmm...if it's the pin, I think I might have something that might help the situation. Two local yokomo drivers have told me that the Alex Racing universal coupler and pins are the same as the yokomo ones (part number A6074) however, the Alex pins are a tiny bit longer than the stock yokomo ones, which support the axles a bit more making them stronger. However, they are not too long where they will interfer with the kingpin screws. I'll try to measure them tomorrow when I swing by the shop.

Thank you guys for all your suggestions I tkink it's time for my yokomo's to get out of the closet. Will defintely try your suggestions.

Steve: Using the old original axle I break the pins, dogbones and the axles but when I started using the HD axles I only break the pins and the dogbones. There was one who suggested to use shrink tube to wrap the axle. I'll give it a try.

Hey Steve do you stock part #ZS-010FH? Also, are the new RS MIP CVD's too new to give a report on them; I'm wondering if they're stronger than the ones pops mentioned (#ZS-010FH's)?
Thanx-

jaybee

P.S.- can't wait for the new YOKE

I'm afraid to say that the shrink tube solution seems doesn't work to me: the pin just penetrated the tube and kept coming out...

The RS mip CVD's are having the same problems as the regular mip cvd's for the SD, they bind the axle when they are tightened. I would stay away from them unless they get MIP to redo them so they don't bind up.
