    There are no aluminum half shafts. They are called CVDs if you upgrade. If you get aluminum CVDs you risk twisting them easier than steel ones and CVDs are VERY expensive for what they are. I recommend MIP ones but some others are Dynamite and XTM. (I strongly suggest not getting the XTM ones even though they are cheap)

    I will defenetely recomend MIP's don't get Dynamite, I broke the back one (the one from the trensmission to the rear differential) after 10 tanks, on my Sirio engine, so if you are planning to upgrade engines, or even with the stock one, go with the MIP's and you wont have any problems.

    you can get titanium or steel cvds. supermaxx makes titanium cvds which are very expensive, 208 for front and rears. sm steel cvds are around 150 for two pairs but are the best designed/strongest cvds i have seen. for most people they are overkill, but if you ever plan on running a .21 engine or just want to get the strongest ones i would recommend them. even running stock engines, i have heard of people breaking xtm, mip, and dynamite cvds.

    My rears broke the first week I had the Maxx and got the Pro-line CVD's to replace them.
    Pro-line is the same thing as the MIP brand, Mip makes them for Pro-line so if you see a set of them around they would be fine also.

    As far as the fronts I havent dont any damage to them, It doesnt seem they take as much abuse as the rears do.

    RCBoys looked to be the cheapest on the CVD's that I remembered. Just get the ones labeled wide or extended since these are the ones for the 2.5.

    I got my full MIP shiny CVDs from tmaxxcentral on ebay. I got a discount because i bought full CVDs at one time and a failsafe.

    I see on ebay they that Mrs Dusty or something sells the full set for like $109 or something. That would be a good deal if you could swing it.
    Ive had good luck with just the rears though other then one broken driveline coming from the tranny.
