Default Question on driveshafts

I got a kit recently and the solid dogbone driveshafts are of varying curvature. Some will rotate true visually while others will rotate 1-2mm off center. Is that bad? I was told by the manufacturer that the long ones all come slightly bent due to length and told me to try it out first.

I'll try it, just thought I'll ask whether it matters. Because searching online, people seems to say it will cause vibrations and maybe other stuff. Right now it's not rubbing but it's awfully close to the braces.

My traxxas hollow driveshafts are perfectly straight. Is it because of the hollow design instead of a solid design?
