    MIP vs. Tekno

    Just looking for pros. And cons. On MIP or Tekno drive shafts. What's better and why.

    I have only ever used Mip X-Duty axles. I have been using the same set since June 2011! They have taken a beating that is indescribable! They have seen on and off road on several different trucks. The best part is that they have been maintenance free this whole time! I recommend them to anyone who wants to have a lasting set of CV axles

    Are you talking about MIP race duty or X-Duty?

    If you are going for bashing I'd take the X-Duty any day for their strength.

    For racing I'd say they are about the same.

    The way I see it:

    MIP for bashing and extremely overpowered speed rigs.
    Pro: Super Strength
    Con: Super Weight

    Tekno for racing and street rigs.
    Pro: Strength & 6mm drive hubs
    Con: Propritary Steering Blocks & Rear Hub Carriers

    If you canít decide, just get the MIPs.
    You wont be dissapointed.

    Only the front knuckles would work. You can not use the xo-1 rear carriers with the teknos. Unless you do a hybrid to run the protrac arms.
    Now the C blocks you can use with tekno front knuckles
