Default Tsunami 55mm rear drive shaft breaks

Well, between our 4 tsunamis we have now, we have broken at least 3 or 4 of the rear drive shafts! They sheer right off on one end or the other right at the ball. I found that the "local" (30 min drive) Hobbietown USA carries a HPI 6x57mm dogbone part number A553 and they fit right in perfect. These hpi shafts look much heavier duty at the ball, and also feel like they weigh considerably more. They also cost $1.50 more a pair than the redcat ones from Clermont, but after comparison I think they will be worth the money.

They are, the HPI CVD shafts from the MT spec 3.0 work on the volcano and they are considerably heavier and more durable and so are the drive shafts you got. the redcat ones are too thin and wear way to fast since they seem to bobble around alot in the drive shaft yokes.
