Are you on tarmac or off road?
Are you jumping?
why's your slipper locked - asking for broken something or other with it being locked...?
That's a mighty amount of HP you're sticking through that drive train.

flat out on grass and dirt,no jumping
and its only the front hubs that are breaking
have been puting locktite on the set screw and the pins still move
ripping out the holes in the hub,but not breaking the axle

one way you can stop that is to remove the pins, file a small flat onto the centre of them and then refit with the grub screw locating onto the flat.

Make sure you don't file it too much though or they can snap when you lock the grub screw down. remember the locktite as well.

worked for me

I grind the point of the set screw flat also.

You can the springs from a MGT or LST servo saver and press them over the axle to keep the pins from moving.
