Default Integy parts for slash 4x4. Good, bad?

I have a slash 4x4 that I just upgraded the power system to a tekin pro4 4000kv engine with castle mamba pro esc with 3s lipo. I am looking at getting some better front axles, as I broke one today and dont wanna have the same problem as i did in the rear with breaking one every time I drive it. I currently have the mpi axles in the rear, but am looking for a little cheaper option for the front as they are not under the same stress and budget right now will not allow me to buy mpi for the front. Was looking at the integy ones seems they are very similar to how the losi trucks come, but am not sure on the quality. Anyone run them? good, bad, decent? Better then stock? Any insight will be appreciated!

i have cvd drive shafts on my jato and they hold up just fine but the half shafts should be fine. i would go with the cvd shafts they are strong and reliable.

I'd stay away from Integy.. I have their diff case for my Bandit VXL.. Their aluminum is not on par w/ STRC racing... appears to be a softer material that bends easy.. Now STRC racing makes a quality product.

Yeah, Integy is known for their weakness. I wouldn't waste your money.

Go with strc if you are going to upgrade aluminum but you should just buy the proline suspension kit it is way better than just wasting you money on aluminum the car will just break more.

Gotcha guess ill wait a little longer for the mpi units. I don't plan to run any of their other products. Any aluminium parts I get will be traxxas replacement.
