    Front Driveshafts!!!

    First time busting my front stock drive-shafts! Been looking around for a cheap upgrade. The mip x-dutys I have on the back are awesome but I'm not planning to get a pair for the front because its just too heavy duty (and expensive). Same with the tekno m6's. Any good options? Upgrading to 4s MMP/2400kv in a few months so need something better than the stock but cheaper than the mips. I guess the front doesn't take as much so I won't need something that strong.

    In US you guys get things for so cheap! I live in Australia and things are expensive here. That is $25 shipping. In AUD its 70 bucks including shipping just for one drive-shaft. I can get a pair of MIPs from towerhobbies for about $80 AUD.

    1: I live in CR where things are probably even more expensive
    2: I found a work around for shipping/customs and those would probably cost me $5 - Try Cargo shipping
    3. Personally I would get the MIPs anyway

    I agree! MIP's are going to be bulletproof on the front of your truck. I have them on mine and will never run anything else.

    MIP on all four makes the best investements as drive shafts....

    Good luck for all of guys out there. Here in Canada I bought those when our dollar was higher luckily, now I just look...but stll cheaper then on the other side of the world.

    That's for only 1 piece. That would end up costing more than MIPs.

    Anyways.... I'd suggest you just take the hit and order the MIPs, since you have them in the rear already. What will happen if you order a cheap knock off (Integy) set.... you'll end up breaking them in a week and then you'll end up with MIPs anyways. That'll cost you more money and aggravation in the long run.

    Bashing with 4s you're likely to bust anything other than MIPs anyway. Buy them once and be done.

    That's what I try to go by now. Just get the best the very first purchase.
    And if you even dream of 4s... Mip

    You can actually get that for cheap from other hobby shops, but I don't think its worth it now. I kind of wanted to try out the M6's. Mip sounds the best right now though.
