    You can always clock you axles to help reduce the angle. But shaft wise I just ordered MIP spline driveshafts for my scx. Haven't got then yet but I've only heard good things about them.

    Doesnt sound like the axle is the problem .
    A pic would help a lot , sounds to me like you need longer upper links in the front to clock the diff up properly .
    Which would improve pinion angle .

    I had to clock my front axle forward on my scx10 when i used my venom axles and 4link. I just adjusted the upper links out a bit longer.

    People talk sometimes about mip driveshafts binding under angle, some say using stock scx10 driveshafts can fix the issue.

    I've been using the JunFac driveshafts for about 6 months. Ton of abuse and never had single problem. I highly recommend them for an scx.
