It looks like GPM has a new CVD wheel driveshaft option for the Granite and BigRock. To the best of my knowledge, the only previous option was the HR version which has mixed reviews and is NOT a cheap option.

Here are the new GPM options, I couldn't find these in the US:
Big Rock: https://www.gpmracing.com.hk/en/pro...-10-4WD-BIG-ROCK-CREW-CAB-4X4-3S-BLX-AR102711
Granite: https://www.gpmracing.com.hk/en/pro...10-4WD-GRANITE-4X4-MEGA-MOSTER-TRUCK-AR102680

Has anyone tried these on their truck?
It looks like there are some on eBay as well now.

I'll give um a shot. 34$ for all corners. Not much more than Jenny's if they break f it
I think $34 will only get you a front/rear set...not both.
Who wants to be the guinea pig? Not it!
I'm doing it. Even with an adjusted slipper, I'm still seeing serious wear on my stock shafts after just a few packs. I've started inspecting the shafts regularly and rotating the worn rears to the front of the truck before they break and am getting better life from them, but the wear rate is significant regardless. It sucks watching the u-joints carve larger and larger holes into the shafts until they eventually pop out.

I cheated because there is no way I'm testing their junk out 😂
Please, for my sake...hope for the best. My order is in. Should we take out a pool on the odds that they are crap?

Put me down for $20 on crap 😂 The material they use is garbage. At least it was on the part I owned. I hope they work out though. I hate to see anyone waste money. Please keep us posted.

I'd be curious to see these.

At first glance I was thinking, "all right, time for the Senton to go back into party mode."
But the more I look closely, I am not so sure about them.

45355

Looking at pictures 2 and 3, it almost looks like the axle end has a round inside diameter and they are using a single grub screw to transfer the power. I originally thought they were using that to just locate the inner portion of the axle, but they use the flat head screw seen in picture 4 for that.

Considering the cost to make the internal splines vs just a round inside diameter, I don't have a ton of hope. Whoever gets a set, take some pics of the diff side of the axle.

That’s The problem with GPM, a lot of variability across their range. So far I have had no issues with the steering knuckles but I threw their dog ones in the bin and turn buckles are ok but probably not worth the extra expense.

I hope the driveshafts work out well.......I will wait and see the reviews

Don't trust anything from Garbage Parts Manufacturing or Intejunk for that matter. These things are made out of aluminum they are not going to last.

GPM doesn't have a US distributor because no one in the US wants to sell their garbage.

That's $34 a pair, the screws and the rings count as pieces. Cancel your order now and save yourself the headache.

I don't hate RPM I just don't think they deserve the praise that everyone gives them. Everyone rants and raves about how RPM makes the best stuff when in reality they are barely better than some stock parts, sometimes they are worse.

With shipping these are as expensive as Hot Racing ones with free shipping... $25 shipping from China. And you wont get them for 5 weeks.

Not exactly. There's a $42 difference if you are buying 2. Speaking for myself at least the interesting part is that they are new and a potential (hopeful) improvement over stock. The HR examples have a given price and history. In time we'll have the same for these GPM examples.

They might be cheaper but you usually get what you pay for, and with GPM you'll be lucky to get that.

Don't worry. My expectations have been well and properly minimized. (y)
Good, because these things are more than one piece and I think that may be beyond their skill set. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
