    I have been running Mip's for three or more years! I still love them and when I get another Slash 4x4 it will have Mip's on it

    The mip x duty shafts are almost indestructable. They are a bit too heavy for racing though unless you lower the gear ratio.
    This will TOTALLY work, saw a guy on YouTube do it

    I love the MIP cvds. I've heard the tekno cvds are also awesome.

    I heard traxxas aren't the best unfortunately, I didn't want to deal with mip's, heard problems with those and didn't like the keyed axles. Ordered teknos, we'll see how they work. I like the oversized bearings as well.

    MIPs with 17mm adapter for over a year. No issues. True, the Keyed axles are not ideal, but the worked for me. The reason MIP upgraded to,keyed axles is that the pins tend to break.

    Early versions of MIPs still have pins.

    I don't think any of them are perfect. They are all stronger than stock. Techno's Have Their problems too. I hope you will be happy with the choice you made

    When I buy wonder off to the hobby shop I look for used slashs/stampedes/rally and then buy mips accordingly. I run them on everything, and never look back.

    I feel exactly the same way! If it is Traxxas, it will have Mip's on it. I only buy Traxxas so there is not anything left to say

    I think all three options including MIP, Tekno and XO-1 are ok. Everyone votes for those that he has got for sure.

    I would say mips and I have the older pinned type and they have never snapped.the only thing that has failed in almost four years is a coupling pin and that was a quick cheap fix...peace

    I have the Traxxas CVD's. Once I got the 2200 motor installed and ran 3S I broke the rear drive shafts in under 5 minutes.

    Replaced them with the CVd's and immediately broke a front...lol Replaced them with the CVD's and no more problems so far.

    I have a set of traxxas cvds, and a set of the traxxas xo1 cvds. I had problems busting stub axles at first while I was running wider grey hexes intended for the front of the rustler. After switching to standard hexes I haven't had any more issues. It seems to me like any of the big three are good choices! For BIG power (2200) mil is probably the only way to go.
