    Might as well take the money it would cost to buy the integy, walk to the toilet, throw it In there, then flush it. You would be out less frustration that way. See integy would have you tearing the shafts out twice. Once to replace with crud and again to replace the crud because it lasted one throttle pull.

    Yes, that bad. They use cheap soft aluminum for most of their parts.

    There is only one part that I will buy with the Integy name on it, and that is their crawler motors, which are a really good budget motor. Integy buys them from someone else and slaps their sticker on them. They do have some other parts that I not bad, shock and tranny cases, but the bulk of their product line is shiny junk. Integy has zero customer service.

    Not very relevant to the topic since the driveshafts are steel. But your point is understood. They are reputed by users here to be horrible.

    MIP and Tekno make very good alternatives.

    +1 on MIP or Tekno

    with the money it will take to replace stock shafts or integy crap shaft, you will be better off in the long run to go ahead and get the MIP or Tekno. you can find them relatively cheap and not $75. one of my LHS's has them for 49.99+tax and another has them for $65. just shop around

    I bought one, it broke going 25 mph over a tall smooth speed bump, it is the biggest rip off ever

    You can also start by just replacing the rear axle. The front doesn't receive all that much torque.

    I snapped 2 'hardened steel' Integy drive shafts on my Rustler. Waste of money IMO.

    I've seen that hopefully they'll be cheaper when released.

    RED loctite on the set screws that hold the cross pins in BLUE at the diff mounts. and speaking of diff mounts, don't even bother using the dual set screw stuff they send with them. order a set of Revo drive shaft screw pins and use them. they go all the way through the diff output, so no chance of them walking off



    I got my 4x4 used with a set of Technos on it. broke 2 within the first month, both at the outer joint. just installed the MIPs and will be running them for the first time this weekend. right off the bat I can tell you they feel WAAAAAAAYYYYYY more solid and better built than the Technos




    fix, run, break, repeat
