My kid killed the rear drive shaft on my AX-10 while I was in Moab.

Should I be upgrading to metal? Or putting plastic back in so it is the weak link?

I would stay plastic, like you said weakest link. You can upgrade to axial Wild boar shafts like all the new axial trucks run. Or just buy new plastic shafts. The metal yokes aren't the culprit, the plastic shaft itself tends to pop off the yoke when the tires are in a bind.

I would keep the driveshaft as the weakest link, since it's the easiest to fix when it breaks.

Get MIPS. I have hammered mine for years with no other breakage on 3S lipos and a 35T holmes motor.
