best MA driveshaft upgrade?

After the centre bearing of my interpart uprated 6 bearing o/s driveshaft falling to bits on the start line at shelsley yesterday, im wondering what are the best shafts to use and where is best to source them?
required to suit an MA gearbox and standard 106 flat bearings. Not looking to go BE so dont bother
thanks in advance.
aaron.

what actually happened to the bearing?
I've never had one actually fail, only wear and get noisy with age, a standard skf cartridge bearing can be fitted as a replacement too so if the rest of the shaft is fine I'd do that, couple of good spot welds to hold the sleeve in place afterwards, as they can wander once they've been shifted once.

oh yeah.

BE ftw


:P

The actual roller bearing in the bearing carrier is fine it's the inner CV joint that has snapped and all the bearings have came apart.
I can't find any offside inner cv couplings though so assume a new shaft is required

yeah, you only ever see the outer joints available separately for pug/citroen shafts that do come apart.

Ones I got from Dave Mac Prop's via Garry Muir, I guessing the JR shafts are the same ones.
