    Bent nitro shaft flanges, need some opinions

    I was wondering why I kept eating axle shaft bearings after finally realizing that both passanger and driver side rear axle shaft flanges are bent. Right now I'm running nitro axle 35spline shafts and from what I read they don't warranty bent flanges, so it looks like I'm in the market for some new ones. What do you guys recommend?

    Actually just pulled the trigger on the revolutions. Black Friday deal got me 85 bux off. Plus they have a warranty on bending which is a major plus lol

    Revolution is awesome! The stand behind their axle shafts and when you bend them, cause it does happen, they’ll swap them. For me, all that they had asked is either send them back in so they can test them to make sure they are bent and they will send you a new set. Or, if it’s you daily driver like mine, they will ask you to buy a second set, install them, and once you send the bent ones back they will credit you back the cost of the set. They are great!

    I just put revolutions in to replace a really bent stocker. Fit right in with no issues. Hope you got the ones with the bearings already pressed in. I used a little red loctite on the races because they fit a little loose in the axle housing.

    Glad to hear. I believe they come pressed on already.just finished installing my 3rd set of bearings on my nitros so I got pretty good at disassemble and install of new bearing and all for each shaft. Wish I would have saw it before ordering all new seals and bearings. Looks like I'll have a shaft for "just in case" on the trail.

    I also like that the studs are threaded instead of pressed in. Easier to replace down the road if there are any issues.
