Default T-maxx Front and Rear Center CVD Steel

I ordered the HPI and Revo parts for the rear center steel driveshaft conversion and I would also like to update the front center to stell as well. I have a 4908 model.

Any help or suggestions is appreciated. I was told to stay way from Integy and MIP so What other options do i have to also make it steel?


Thanks

Hmmm well I've seen multiple guys with the Picco .26 and they havent broken there plastic center ones. So if you can't find any CVD's then at least the stocks are not too bad
