Default redcat monsoon front axles

Does anyone know of any other brands front axles that will fit on the redcat monsoon? what options are there for strengthening the axles if any?

I'll bump this hella old post because I have the same exact issue. The front axles on the monsoons are terrible, mine break, bend and pop out of the out drives cups constantly. It sucks to not be able to jump this truck. Does anyone know if any other axles are compatible with the monsoon?

The replacement CVD's that I last received from Redcat are an upgraded version from what comes stock. They've put a band around the universal to remedy the pin problem. They pop out of the cups usually when the wheels are fully turned on a rough hit or landing. The stock radio does not have end point adjustments so unfortunately if your still using it, this problem will likely continue until you limit the steering travel.

I'm using a flysky gt3 transmitter. The driveshafts only pop out when I land jumps. It will happen even when the truck lands perfectly flat when I'm not turning the wheels. The wheels get cocked when the axle pops out though. I'll limit my steering end point when I get my new axles in the mail, i'll also tighten up my servo saver too.
