Don't you just hate it when your bashing sections cut short by sand or rock getting into your center driveshaft and damaging parts whether that is a spur/pinion gear, driveshafts, or whatever that maybe? Or don't you just hate the freaking sounds from the sand jam-off from your driveshafts?
I follow a post from the 'Low Maintenance Thread' thread, where people use CF tube (http://www.aprohobbies.com/carbon-fi...port-p-55.html) to cover the center driveshaft.
So I ordered 2 for both slash and stampede, below is my modification for stampede:
New and scratched-up driveshafts, Tube after cutting (I realized that the tube is a little shorter than I should have been),:
Drill a little to widen the hole in order for the tube to fit, just a little so that it holds the tube snugly:
How it looks after installing,
Bottom - because I cut the tube a little short, it doesn't cover the whole driveshaft. I will need to add the additional length later.
I am happy with the mod, and it's really a working solution as I tried a full 5400mAh, 50C today with no freaking sound from jam-off
