Default Drive shaft question

I have a MRC Pro, and I want to put some metal drive lines on. As ive twisted and broken the stock ones. I was wondering if anyone has installed a set of the integy, mip or 3 racing drive shafts with out having to shorten them. I had to shorten the drive shafts on my creeper, when i switched from the stock chassis with a ax10 tranny to the vp insision chassis.

Go with the MIP's. They fit directly, no modifications needed, and are super tough. Just make sure you use red Loctite on the grub screws and tighten them down good or the pins will work out.

I have MIP drivelines on both my minis. They work great. The setscrews strip easily so watch that.

I agree with Ted, go with the MIP's. Immediately when you pick them up at your Local hobby shop, match the grub screw size with the other ones they have. Most of the time they will have a larger opening for a bigger allen key.
