    Anybody know where to get a steel driveshaft?

    I recent have taken my bottom skid plate off for cleaning and noticed that the center shaft is bent
    I was wondering if anybody can get a solid steel one?
    Yes I know it will be heavy
    Hollow steel would be ok if nobody makes them solid I will see if a local machinist can make some for me

    Here are some damaged pics you can see the Bowing in the shaft

    Following, but I figure there will be comments like itís better to bend a drive shaft than do damage to the diffs. I bought an extra aluminum one for just in case.

    Iíve seen the support block. Integy makes a billet aluminum upgraded driveshaft. I polished the name off. Good to go


    Somehow builds are never done....

    In my build thread I compare the two with picture proof of the increased wall thickness. Itís been rock solid for a couple years now

    I see what you guys are saying about that support block. You would definitely want to keep it greased up good. I like how Integy thickens the shaft between the two ends of the shaft. I just wish it wasn't Integy. You got to be very careful when dealing with those guys. They have a terrible reputation.

    Got-cha. I'm sure Fastlaners would be reasonable to work with. Integy does make some good stuff, but their customer service has a horrible reputation. On occasion I'll get an Integy part. On rare occasion when I do, though; I get it from my (LHS) not Integy, and I don't buy it sight unseen. That's (IMO) the only way you can protect yourself from a company that has bad customer service.

    I donít know man. When they repped TP, they would only use their motors, then when TP had shaft breakage issues their tune changed. Then they would only recommend Leopard motors. Their just parts slangers, thatís fine, but I wonít donate any money to them.

    How would you rate them compared to Castle and Leopard motors?

    So far I have a TP 5660 (1356 KV) and a TP 4070 (2080 KV), been running great. Awesome power, both run cool and no problems so far. Excellent motors for the price!

    Haven't had any castle motors yet, but have a Leopard 5898 1100kv which has also been good.

    They seem like more powerful
    Motors as you can specify winding style and turns. The cans are super long. They are also dragging more amps out of equipment than leopard does. I know my boy loves them and the capabilities. They did have issues breaking shafts in larger scale vehicles. This Iím sure was due to more than one factor. They did however get pulled from most distributors, and got quite a black eye. Iíd go leopard all day again for the X-Maxx. But if I ever swap my Poseidon motor in my Rustler, it will be for a TP.
