    MIP driveshafts

    Any benefit to using the MIP driveshafts over the stock ones?

    I don't think so unless your running a brushless motor on 6s

    I have not heard of anyone experiencing a stock driveshaft failure. Not sure I want to spend seventy bucks on something I don't need.

    My stock ones have been great. Lots of run time on them and bashing against the rocks. But some mip are on my list of upgrades when I start up again.

    I got them and aside from looking better and far more scale it's one of those upgrades that doesnt really benefit performance, just makes things stronger. I did it simply because I've added so much weight to the truck I wanted something beefier, and heavier down low.

    I bought them after seeing a video about how much smoother they make driving - it doesn't help, but they do look nice and are quite durable. This is one upgrade you definitely don't need to do.

    Does ant one know if there are any aftermarket metal driveshafts that fit the trx4 bronco with the traxxas lift? I know the kit comes with extensions for the stock shafts, but seeing as how I have gone brushless as of today, I was wanting something I wouldn't have to worry about.

    Mip has the front driveshaft for the lift
    My stock driveshafts were sticking in one half of the shaft so bad i needed plyers to remove it
    I dont know if its listed but when I ordered the mip kit it vibrated somthing fierce so I called support and they sent me almost 2 other complete sets and 2 rebuild kits including the front drivshaft for the lift. They are expensive yes but the customer support it top notch and you wont ever have to wonder if your going to drop a drivshaft

    You might also look at HR drive shafts, they should be long enough and less expensive.

    Defender stock rear driveshaft is the same length as the bronco lifted rear driveshaft. info straight from traxxas should help people find proper lengths
