Default Wraith drive shafts

What are the best drive shafts for the wraith? I am going to be running a pro 4 in one wraith and a roc 412 in the other wraith. Wanting to know what would be the best drive shafts for both builds?

I'm running tmax shafts. Very heavy duty and kinda scale looking and cist pennies compared to MIPS or anything with a VP stamp on it.

I'll throw my vote in for MIPs, they make good stuff and I have seen them take some abuse! Just installed a set the other day.

I have pounded my MIP's. I've rebuilt them in my shop and on the trail. They take a beating like Forest Griffin. ...but they don't run out of the ring crying.

Just buy you some MIPs and be done with it. Never have to worry about driveshafts again.

No rebuild required unless they were initially assembled improperly...

I Love these threads!

Like, the best CHEAP servo. (Who cares its CHEAP!) BUT ONLY FOR NOW... till ya buy a few then ya buy one that's goin to last or has a warranty and the wasted money of the CHEAP servo..

I tried traxxas, integy, axial, wb8's, etc... they need mods or Thrown out!

Spend the 50$ and be done.. IF, IF, IF(which on 4s for a year, after it was pulled off the front of a comp rig with dig for 8 months, that MIP is still in one piece and on a rig) a MIP needs a rebuild, a rebuild kit is 10$, 23$ gets you a full rebuild minus the main shafts.. you can even pick up a full dig shaft for 17$ and throw the shafts out if ya want.. then again, the female shaft is the same its only the male shaft that's shorter..

Cheap is cheap.. FOR NOW, till ya replace it once..

Unless ur goin for light weight on a sporty rig (which then wb8's is the way to go) there is nothing like a MIP, second to none...

More like a 4 time replacement to catch the 50 dollar MIP.

4s isn't very crazy power these days.

Mip's,I have over 30 rc's if mip makes a shaft for it I got it. Buy them,build them right and beat the crap out of them. They are more expensive but what is your time,aggrivation, and down time worth. Buy them once,rebuild them if needed later on and your still ahead.

You are always talking about how much cheaper traxxas shafts are. I'm just not seeing the savings. Would you mind showing how much it costs for the traxxas stuff? Maybe I don't know about a good source or something.

How do you build a mip wrong? Fill it with lapping compound instead of lube?
