    eBay steel stock style drive shafts

    Wondering if anyone tried them, are they worth getting, my son seems destroy any plastic Traxxas shaft. I know MIP are great, but for now Iím looking for something a bit cheaper thatíll hold the power better.

    If so, Iíd say donít do it, unless you know where to find replacement parts, pins, etc. I had these, they broke, and found zero parts support.

    The Rustler 4x4 VLX rear drive shafts are a step up, and not too pricey at all. MIP x-duty is great, expensive, but I doubt youíll ever have to replace them.

    I really think theyíre just some knockoffs, and definitely not cheap in the price department.

    Try these- good price, very tough. I use these with 2/3s, and I know others on the forum use 4s with these. They seem reliable so far.

    Those are the ones I put on his Rustler 4x4 VXL and he broke the inboard one. I’m guessing I’m gonna have to teach him to come outta the hole a bit easier.
