    I tested the protos for FLM and they work great. I actually still have them on my truck and it's been at least 2 years now of running on them. I was running THS center CVD's but those took a dump and I ordered the MIP C-CVD center set to try and the MIP's are pretty beefy as well. The MIP CVD's looks just like a stock spline shaft only in hardened steel. Now the FLM's are just as strong but are lighter. The FLM is a dog bone style CVD. I think the MIP's are around $55 for a set of two shafts (4 needed for the truck), the FLM's are $75 for all 4 shafts.

    My bigesst concern is how much do they weigh? I saw MIP went over to that splined deal but first thing I thought washow much do they weigh. I always want to take weight out of a car or truck not add. Is there a web site for the FLMS?

    Fastlanemachine.net. They took the pics down. You can't order directly from them you have to get them from RC-monster or one of their other dealers. You have to figure though, the little bit of extra weight can be overlooked in the strength you will be adding.
