The RPM Axle Carriers for Traxxas 1/16th RC vehicles such as the 1/16 E-Revo, 1/16 Summit, the 1/16 Slash etc. are a great upgrade adding more durability and features to your 1/16 scale RC vehicle. There is very little that can be as frustrating on an RC vehicle as slop in the suspension system. In the case of Traxxas 1/16th scale vehicles, there is absolutely no slop adjustment for the suspension pivot balls. Once the axle carriers begin to wear at those balls, the camber, toe and caster angles don't stay true, causing the vehicle to wander, making it very difficult to control.

That is where RPM steps in by bringing 1/16th scale Axle Carriers with a unique pivot ball retention system that locks the pivot ball in place, yet still allows for adjustment due to wear. The system is based on a cap design, held in place with a pair of small screws. Simply slip the caps in place, tighten the flathead screws until the free play of the pivot ball is eliminated and you're ready to go.

The RPM Axle Carriers have been completely redesigned for added durability and crash-survivability. RPM engineers found that the stock pivot ball opening could be reduced in size to help support the pivot ball better, meaning a significantly lower chance of pulling the ball through the hole. The redesigned overall shape and superior materials that go into our version make them the best alternative at the lowest price available. And to top it off, RPM axle carriers are marginally lighter than the stock versions.
