Default Xray T4 driveshafts

Has anyone tried other manufactures front drive shafts on an Xray T4?
Looking for a lower cost option that is decent.


Thank you

I have used the Yeah Racing drive shafts and have not had any problems.....and a pair cost less than one of the Xray's.

Why would you need to replace with aftermarket parts? I've had the same shafts in my '15 car and haven't had any troubles. I have rebuilt them a couple times but that's all.

They wear out big time. The aluminum tworks with blades are the way to go.
