Default Extended drive shafts optitions for peeps that are exting the wheel base on their TH

So I have seen peeps both use the BMR extended links and the RC4WD Slash straight axle conversion links. I have not seen anyone step up to the plate yet on a drive shaft. I know of another option for longer steel drive shafts. A friend of mine is using one on his TH, I'm just not sure which one.

Ultra Scale Hardened Steel Driveshaft (3.74"/5.1"-95mm/130mm)

Here is the shaft i am using on my TH with a Blue Monkey +1" rear control arms. the rear tranny output shaft needs to have a small amount of filing, extending the flat area out just a hair to capture the socket screw lock key. Otherwise a simple bolt up
RC4WD Punisher shaft 150-192mm

I welded 2 AX10 female mip shafts together. Works nicely.

Sorry if this is a threadjack, but wondering if extending wheelbase causes noticeably more high centering? Seems like it must, but then maybe extended wheel travel could get some clearance back...

Thread jack away! I don't mind. Yes it will to some degree high center more often. I have not extended mine, as I like the short wheel base. A lot depends of what the rig is being used for and what the driver likes... I can go deeper into detail but I need to get my TH back together and packed as I'm traveling to Arizona for vacation and a G6 comp down there.
