Shumacher and Losi both used the old school 2 piece sliding drive shaft. They are also plastic.

That's what I've done, and I can run the rear shocks in any position at full droop with no problems with plunge or axle angles.

As far as the pucks system, I'd be all for the aluminum setup, but am not a big fan of CVD designs due to bind and how fast a CVD wears.

Yes an aluminum setup will accelerate easier, but there are two factors that weigh in on the theory. The overall weight AND the distance of that weight from the centerline of the axis. Being a steel axle is so much smaller, I would think the gains are marginal. Maybe a 20% gain in acceleration?

It's a trade off. Less weight with more maintenance and more axle bind, vs more weight, zero maintenance and no axle bind.
Already have them on my car. This was the very first issue I pointed out once I built the car. Problem has been corrected so all is well for now.

So for those curious about another body....I fitted my 22 2.0 finisher on my yz2 and it fits. Just watch how you cut it out by slipper. Mines obviously cut for the 22. Here's some pics.









Then my freshly built YZ-2
