So after the tumble off the magic mountain, I needed to repair the Scorpion...

I had to up the ante while i was at it with a few goodies from The Crawler store...

I ordered their boomerang front and rear link/servo mounts, axel battery mounts and a Elite 1500 7 cell pack

It is a lot more predictable now, and torque twist seems to be a thing of the past...

So far it looks like a good mod for the money

front servo mount, batt mount, and 1500mah pack

Looks good!

How are the stock drive shafts holding up? I'm going to an axial tranny in my CJ and run axial axles. Thinking about just running stock axial shafts too.

Mine are holding up so far. I think the people having the problems with them popping out ate running them at an extreme angle. If you keep them pretty flat you should be good.

This is the Comp thread right? Extreme angle is what you will find at a 2.2 Comp. :poke:

Does the stock AX10 come with metal drive shaft yokes or plastic?

I've been reading that the jato shafts connect to stock axial yokes.

The kit comes with both. I'm sure you could use metal Pede yokes too.

I picked up pede yokes and jato shafts today. pede yokes start out the right size but have some flat spots that need drilled out. Probably have to open up the holes in the yoke to fit the pins from the drive shaft too.

The steel Pede yokes have a straight 5mm bore, no flat spots. I have a set of the steel Pede yokes that I will use if I have trouble with the Axial yokes.

You shouldn't have a problem with the axial yokes, people are having trouble with the shafts themselfs, they are a softer plastic than the pede ones, so they tend to seperate and pop off at the yoke... But the pede ones have snapped there before, so its really a catch 22...

Axial does have a hop up listed though that should help that, looks like a piece of green tube that slips over the ears to stop the ears from spreading (anyone that had a first generation rc18t will be familiar with this method, as the rear diff would spread and throw dogbones, they added a simaler piece of tube in the kit later)
