I'm just getting into racing with my Mission and I'm wanting to upgrade the Axles to make them more durable. What are the best ones to go with? The titanium or the steel ones? Thanks

Most of us around here just use the steel bones with good results, its a heck of a lot cheeper then replacing the whole axle with ti. The steels of course are a little heavier than the ti.

According to Schumacher's website the Steel Drive Shafts (U2151) are 44.99 for a pair and the titanium CVD's (TR2564T) are 49.99 for a pair. There is no picture for the steel driveshafts but it looks like the difference is that the titanium ones are an entire axle assembly? Sorry for the questions but i'm still learning all this stuff. Thanks.
