    Do you mean, "Do they make steel drive shafts for the Slayer?" If so, nope. I havn't found any yet to date. The stock drive shafts a great, I don't see a need to upgrade them unless your running a HUGE big block, or a large brushless motor for a E-Slayer.

    mate just go with the revo 3.3 driveshafts and cut them to length. this is my back up plan once my stocker give up but so far its holding still even on 6s.

    summit shafts would also be a good alternative. just like revo/erevo shafts they will have to cut to length.

    Cut summit shafts are stronger than revo shafts. Revo shafts should still be plenty strong for an eslayer though.

    Stock slayer shafts will start to give you trouble with a brushless rig on high traction surfaces.

    Awesome mate...exactly what I was looking for; THANK YOU!...I am using Slayer Pro arms front and rear....

    Can I use these in the front too??
    Is the AX10 drive spline set is the same length as the stock Slayer drives shaft??

    yes front and rear ,but i've never had a problem with tearing out front shafts. so in my eyes steel on the front is just unwanted weight
    the shafts slide on there splines like the plastic stock ones for right lenght and for suspension movment.. did alot of research
    to figure out what works for the slayer pro. the axles and output hubs was the easy part! shafts took some figuring out..

    Thanks for the info mate...this car wont be doing any jumping at all...I Like the eSlayer so much I am making a dedicated road build drifter with pretty stiff suspension...Its going to run 2/3s so the added weight will be welcomed .

    FLM makes CVD's for the Slayer. They are a dog bone style CVD. For center shafts you have a wide variety of choices for CVD's there. THS, MIP are just a few I can think of. Just get center shafts for a Revo 3.3 for the Slayer pro or Revo 2.5 for original Slayer.

    I've just been looking on MIP's website and see you can buy MIP CVD's from them now for the Slayer Pro.

    I'm not sure which one as there are 2 product numbers #9170 or these #9173...could any one shed some light on what is the difference between the 2.

    I was thinking of getting the #9170...Thanks.

    I have an eSlayer that I built from an eRevo brushless chassis. I am using the Pro arms on mine for the extended length. I was gonna get your above MIP recommended parts list post #8 from tower hobbies...it worked out almost $200 for me. It's a lot of cash for these shafts so I was browsing the MIP's site yesterday and came across the ones I mentioned.

    It says 9173 are Center shafts.. So Center means from the transmission to diff...
    And 9170 won't work with slayer pro extended arms...
