So... too much power + drag slicks = broken half shaft. is it possible to get anything stronger??

I'm running two 2WD boxes. One front one back.

The GTI axles have stronger joints on them. That might be a good start.

Only the outer cvs are slightly stronger and shaft is 1mm thicker, the weak inner cv's are the same, not much choice if you want to stick with the 'little' small framed swift/metro box, most people drag racing swap to the stronger large frame g16 fwd cable shift box or the awd box as they have a much bigger diff and larger inner cvs, dmwdave carries HD driveshafts for this box, if you have money to burn you could chance your luck with Suzukird.
