    4x4 Slash - Driveshaft/Drive axle assembly - Any upgrade recommendations??

    I recently broke a driveshaft assembly on the rear. Is the MIP driveshafts the way to go?

    I was thinking about maybe an upgrade to RPM, but as far as I know, RPM doesn't make driveshafts. I don't really want to spend 50.00 on just replacing the rear driveshafts with the MIP if I don't have to, but I would like to have something stronger than stock.

    Thanks for your advice/recommendations!

    On my slash 4x4 with a 2650 kv motor, I have mips all around and I honestly think I will never break them. I say it's worth it for $50. I think proline makes some half shafts but I'm not sure of the price

    I run MIP X-duty as well. If ya dig around ebay you can find them for around $90(set of 4)delivered. I got sick of replacing broken plastic at $10ea. I think any of the axle upgrades worth doing(MIP,Teckno,Traxxas)are gonna cost about the same. Good luck!

    As long as you assemble your MIP X-DUTY axles correctly, they will last a long time!
