Default Rustler Breaking axles

I have a Rustler that is running a Sidewinder SCT ESC with a 1410-3800KV motor on 3s lipo. However when every I go full throttle off the line the axles will snap. I have just been using plastic stock axles so far but I am done with the breaking. So I am wondering what would be a good replacement axle to put on it so that it does not break anymore axles, and can still get the power down.

If you want to be a bit cheaper but still have quality... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Integy-V2-X...4383.l4275.c10

Or... You could go for the Traxxas steel axles:

The Rustler, like the Stampede 4X4 VXL, can generally handle 2S out of the box. Start running 3S regularly and things start to break... FAST!

I have MIP XDuty axles on one of my Stampede 4X4 VXLs and I have yet to break an axle and I run that truck full out on 3S and do not treat it nicely. On my Rustler VXL the Traxxas steel axles are holding up fine but I tend to just blast around the grass with my Rustler.

That is good info to know. So far Ive broken two output axles on my 4x4 VXL and I think your right both times were with a 3s and being crazy with it.2s ive not broken anything. Not bad I don't run it a lot but had it about a yr so far.
