Personally I'd keep the stock shafts because theres nothing wrong with them and I dont trust either of those brands to make high quality parts at all. Theres a reason some companies are first to market, no testing and they dont give a damn.



I dont like driveshafts that use the spring/wire wrap to retain the drive pin, they have a way of popping loose with this design. Both of those use this poor design.


If anyone is interested in looking at these heres some links

I would wait for a reputable company to make a set like Incision, MIP, or SSD. Or you can simply measure the lengths and order the correct sizes.


My guess is you can just get the standard TRX4 drive shaft kit for the front 2 axles and then you just need a short one right?


Check out these options, lengths are listed in the description, the important numbers are the min and max lengths.
SSD

incision (Vanquish Product's budget brand)

MIP

Shafts can also be cut down to fit with some designs, just look it over before you cut.

GPM and Yeah Racing are both good companies and offer a lot of quality parts. However, the spring design of their driveshafts is simply not ideal. Like Humbolt said the spring retainer catches on things as the driveshaft rotates and becomes dislodged which allows the cross pin to fall out and that is pretty much the end of your day. MIP makes arguably the best steel driveshaft currently on the market. MIP also sells a rebuild kit for their driveshafts when the time comes.
