    Im looking online to get a driveshaft for my rig the only downside is that I have a Chinese rig (I'm cheap ik). My outputs on my axles is only 4mm and everything else is 5mm. They need to be 90-120mm Long (I think the same as a axial dingo). Can anyone help? Thank you

    you can use brass tube to make a sleeve 5mm out side 4mm inside to fit your axles

    found a 550 motor with good wheel speed and torque it gets warm pretty quick I don't know what turn it is but I have a gear slipping sound when under extreme load I'm guessing this isn't real good. where could it be coming from
