Default Blackout front transverse axle upgrade?

I have 4 Blackout XBEs that I drive/bash mostly in dusty conditions and have noticed that the front transverse drive shafts wear somewhat faster than I would expect. Can anyone recommend an upgrade to an aftermarket CVD or even a modification to an aftermarket CVD that will help with my problem?

Default Broken Redcat Blackout XBE pro Transverse axel issues

I have the same issue, I've gone through 6 pairs so far.
The steel pin that connects the shaft to the axel just slowly distorts the pin holes until its to large to keep pin in place or the pin actually pushes through the aluminum sleeve that retains the pin usually both.
The steel pin is of stronger metal than the cheap metal used on the axel so after 3 to 5 runs its toast and the pin falls out and disconnects and the axel is useless as the pin hole is huge!

I broke the first transverse axel less than 1 week after I bought the car and I tried to contact redcat but at that time I wasn't able to explain the issue very well. Redcat basically ignored my complaint.
