I use my slash for just bashing and at the skate park for jumping. I was wondering of the mip c-cvd would be sufficient or do I need to spend the extra $25 and get the mip x-duty? I thought the c-cvd would be better cause they are lighter and I like to do big air jumps, I just don't know if they would hold up. What do you guys think? Thanks
R u running the vxl system? What cell lipos? Tires? For most cases, the regular c-cvds are fine.

The mip regular cvds should work fine for your use. I run the velineion motor, and castle esc, and 2s lipo, and I have never broke an axle yet. The only possible problem is that near the output yolk from the transmission, the shaft is rubbing the yolk, which is cutting a small ring into the shaft. I haven't found a solution yet. Maybe somebody else has?

How about the HD plastic shafts? They should be lighter than the mip's.
And if you're getting big air, I've heard the mip's may drop out at maximum suspension extension.
My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...
I run the 6852x's hd 4x4 rear and they hold up pretty good but will eventually round out. I just ordered a set of the regular cvds. Tired of buying drive shafts hope this solves it. I think if you put the shock on the inner most hole and the bearing carrier on the upper most hole you will have this problem of the yoke hitting the shaft at maximum droop. But use the lower bearing carrier hole and at least the 2,3,4... you wont shoudn't have the problem. The straighter you can keep the shafts the longer they will last.
I will say this, if you get the Mip X-Duty axles they will last you an extremely long time! I have had a set for two years and they are solid. I did break a stub axle in February but it was covered by their warranty and had a new part by the end of the week!
