Any of the new spurs should be the thicker spurs. I had bought 2 packs of spur/slipper kits, and they were all updated thicker gears. Check Tower, and maxxtrucks (speedtech).

This shows the same part number as the 10mm spurs I got, but the listing doesn't show it is 10mm. So like Thermal said, they all should be the updated spurs, unless someone has the old style in stock that they want to unload on some poor soul.

I'm getting a used TNX in the mail and I want to buy some parts to get the truck in better shape. I got all new gears ready. I was wondering which axle is normal, they have left/right threaded axles. I assume that's the way they thread on, right=normal threading.

And what shears off the axle usually? Do the universal pins tear out of the U joints? And what about the mid axle shaft. I looked at pictures and it looked like a separate part that connects the female ends of the universals so they can telescope. If that piece fails, I don't see a part number for it.

The axles usually break at the u-joint. You won't need the aluminum part between the axles unless you lose one.

Yeah, right has the normal threading, its the silver side.

I'm still usin stock drive u-joints. You can go with CVD's but I don't see a reason to get rid of the stockers. Some u-joints break when they bind from the suspension arm being over extended, I haven't had that problem.

Nice to hear that you're still keeping your TNX pro. Can't live without a reliable truck eh.
