i meant on pinion... sorry

and also, where can i get steel, or really tough drive shafts? i already broke the front mip ones for my wce, so i need steel ones that need no mods, and probably off of tower hobbies

the reason was a spool in the front im shure and it strained it pretty bad, with a lrp sr, which has some insane punch and a reedy quad mag 19 turn motor

A bent or broken drive shaft with a spool is normal. So it is not from your mega punch SR esc or 19t

You will bend steel. At least you can try and bend it back. Spool + boards = bent drive shafts.
