    Kyosho Pegasus/Icarus Axles

    I have just got back into RC buggies and restored some that I had back in high school.
    They are the Kyosho Pegasus and Icarus models.
    I have a few old broken and worn rear axles that I saved from a few accidents back in the days.
    The bushings cut groves into them that I was able to correct by filling with, machning back down, and installing bearings.
    I have a few axles that broke by a flip, just starting a nut onto it or dropping it (these things are pathetic cheap pot metal).
    I just recently broke my last good (starting a nut onto it!).
    I have managed to center drill and tap an axle for a 2-56 screw.
    I installed it onto the left side of the car and added a little lock-tight to the threads.
    I know there is alot of these buggies out there (including the Cosmo and Cox Bandido).
    The driveshafts are usually worn down also and will fly out.
    Since axles are pretty much non-existant, has anybody tried to come up with a retro-fit using a different set of axles and drive shafts?
    I have been looking at various axle/driveshaft assemblies from different Tamiya models.
    I hate to just let these cars sit around and let the newer ones get all the running.
    These buggies were always fun.....
    Thanks!

    RE: Kyosho Pegasus/Icarus Axles

    Thanks, but I actually located a new set. I would still like to come up with a way to use a different set of axles and driveshafts. I'm sure these will eventually break as well....

    I don't think that we had problems with breaking. We still have a Cosmo and Icarus.

    They are like pot metal. A good flip and they snap. Can snap putting on wheel nut.
    Drive shafts wear out bad too.
    My cars have alot of miles on them.
