    Rear driveshafts popping out

    Took my mini revo to a track today and spent just as much time running as I did trying to pop the four-pin balls the connect the rear driveshafts to the rear diff back into place.

    Is there a common fix for this (to keep them from popping out)? Electrical tape or something, maybe?

    Funny I just had to do this on my rustler today, but just once.

    Before I snapped it back on, I pinched it with some pliers to close it back to stock shape so it could fit on there tighter. Maybe thats what it needs done to it so it doesnt jump ship so easily.

    My rear yoke was broken where is connects to the rear diff. No matter what i did, it kept popping out. I ended up swapping the yoke for a front one, super gluing the broken one and then shrink wrapping it and it holding up fine on the front of the truck.

    does the shrink wrap allow the joint to flex properly?

    It flexs fine if you don't do the entire joint. I did just the yoke and didn't lose any movement at all.

    Will the CVDs eliminate this problem?
