Default Stronger Dogbones for RS4 3SS

I've upgraded my rs4 3ss to an O.S. .18 engine and now am having the problem of breaking the center rear dogbone (the one from the tranny to rear diff). Is there a stronger dogbone that will fit there, I saw a 7x57mm one, looks beefier: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXFYV0&P=7 but will this fit? I only need the driveshaft dogbone, so CVD's which go out to the wheels won't work here for me. Thanks all.

I think that's longer. If i'm not mistaken Wolfpack Radicals might make a stronger driveshaft dogbone for the RS4 3. I think.

Josh, are you running those driveshafts? Want to make sure they will hold up before I buy. Thanks.
