    Will mip drive shafts rub on my slash 4x4 aluminum axial carriers?

    I have blue aluminum carriers and want to get mip driveshafts. Will they rub?

    I have never had my Mip's rub. I wouldn't worry about it.

    It all depends on how much droop you have setup in your suspension. Mine dont rub but my buddies did and he had more droop in his setup than me. It wasnt alot of rub and it clearanced itself after one jump while staying on the gas.

    That is to be expected! Steel is harder than aluminum! Won't rub for long, if it did

    OK do you think that the mip driveshafts slow your car down any? There are big an d bulky. Very nicely made though.

    I just put the MIP's on my ultimate and they did rub in the beginning. Not as much after a few runs. I'm going to shave a bit of the aluminum just to make it smoother.

    they dont rub...but it sure makes your car heavier. I love them alot, but make sure you used loctite. And ever since ive put them on, ive had dome problems with my truck in the rear diff ONLY. Maybe my truck doesnt like me and maybe likes to make me mad, i dont know

    I don't think so. if they do, its worth it to not break driveshafts.
