    I've been asking about this on the forums for awhile... nobody has em yet because Traxxas is taking FOREVER to get them out. Seriously, come on Traxxas...

    It does seem to take them a long time for them to get new products out... like the PE...

    They really shouldn't even advertise for these items if they aren't even going to come out with them.

    Go with the TeknoRC Driveshafts.....they are sweet!!! It makes the Slash 4X4 a much smoother rolling ride. It's worth the investment.

    Just to let everyone know, The Owner of MIP called me today and told me that they completely beefed up the new MIP Telescopic axles for the Slash 4x4, he said they upsized the diamter of all the pins, the shafts are bigger, he basically said they are a lot beefier then the original axles that came out about 2 months ago. Although they are not available yet, he is sending me a set of Fronts and Rears and I will take a picture of them and post it for those that are interested. He said they should be available in about 2 weeks. Just thought I would update everyone.

    I loved the MIP design, they "were" silky smooth. I am anxiously awaiting your review. As I think most of us are.

    I don't understand why they don't over build these things in the first place. They know how much power brushless systems are cranking out these days. So build some CV's that are big and burly first time around, I'd rather have a heavy set of drive shafts that dont break then a pair of light weight shafts that are ticking time bombs.

    That's what Traxxas said about the stock driveshafts...

    I have a feeling that if you have bought the MIP telescopic axles for your slash 4x4 and have had any parts of them break that MIP will replace them with the new beefier versions, worst case scenerio is you will have to send back the broken parts, but they will probably replace the entire front & rears. The ones you have now and the new beefier ones are not compatible from what he was telling me because the new parts are bigger.

    I personally don't care if they're more expensive, I just want them to not break. I've been through too much money already replacing axles that were supposed to be able to last. THAT was the main reason I bought the thing, they said it was built to handle it.

    unfortunately since i was a paying beta tester for the first set, i will not be sinking money into a revised product that i already purchased less than a month ago. MIP REALLY dropped the ball on the R&D if they're already revising these a couple short months after the initial release.

    I spoke with MIP yesterday after snapping a cvd. They said they changed the company that heat treated the parts and it was subpar. Also mentioned the new XD heavy duty cvd's that are coming soon. They are warrantying mine current cvd but that doesn't help when I snap it again. :-( They should offer an exchange.
