    Tekno Big Bone center driveshaft

    Just picked one up, no instructions or info on tekno website. So I assume the two washers go into the hub carriers, those are installed on either end on the front and rear diff. Anyone have a YouTube link to an install or a PDF file?


    A work in progress
    Castle mod coming soon

    I have the stampede one and you put 2 washers in each of the ends that the rod goes into.

    I know this is not the exact terms but basically they prevent the dogbone from moving.

    I bought the same one but returned because you have to pull it apart every time you change a spur gear right?! The out drive for the rear won't fit through the motormount?!

    One extra screw to remove to change a spur and it's a horrible design?
    I don't know whether that falls into the "hard to please" or "unreasonable" category.

    Finished install, wasn't as time consuming as I thought. I'm just going to get an extra carrier, no big deal . The set screw does bind a bit on the plastic shaft cover, after a few
    runs it worked itself out. Going to work great when I get the castle going.

    I really like the Tekno center shaft. Top quality stuff again from Tekno. Just gring down 1 mm from the bottom of the grub screw if it will not fit through. That is all with mine that kept it from sliding through the motor mount bearing. Easy peasy for me.

    I think its a great design. I've been running mine since they came out.

    Ksb, what's wrong with an extra screw for a tough slick design right?? Sometimes you can't please them all.
