Default vanquish centered axle shafts to GCM centered housing compatibility

Wraith/Yeti Centered Pumpkin Rear Axle Shafts - Vanquish Products

Hello I've recently twisted the tang off of an axle in my Yeti running a GCM centered housing and custom shafts, and was wondering if the new Vanquish centered axle shafts will fit my housing for a quick off the shelf replacement?

I assume they would and if they do would be the best option. Only one way to find out for sure.

I would assume they would but I can tell you for sure that these fit (I have the GCM axle also) and have been holding up fine for 3 months now...

Yes the RC4WD axles were one of them Chris recommended, I guess I'll be the guinea pig and try a set of Vanquish they should be good.

I ended up ordering a set of these shafts last night, guess we'll know if they fit in a day or two. If they fit I suppose the chromoly will hold up better than anything available.

I just installed them yesterday, looks like the drive pins might rub on the little bearing retainers cups because they don't have the shoulder on the shafts to keep the tangs from going into the locker too deep. I'll either just let them create their own clearance or drill the cups out so they just retain the bearing with the outer race. They look stout though.
