    Rally Center Driveshaft

    Looks like I'll be replacing yet another stock part. I noticed when I manually turn the wheels, the center driveshaft wobbles like its kinda bent as it rotates. Could it be something else that its connected to causing that or do I probably need to replace the stock driveshaft? I think I remember comments in here on how flimsy the stock center driveshaft is.

    If so, anyone recommend any in particular??

    Even with tekno big bones, others reported that it wobles so bad, it rubs the mamba esc mount. I have the big bones rght now and so far I did not experienced rubbing, although I have to shave off the front chassis to clear off the drive cup from rubbing.

    What did you do exactly? Just take everything apart and put it back together again? Was your driveshaft "jump-roping" (@ViperZ)

    You could replace the shaft and add a VGRacing support bar. I have one in my LCG Slash and it works great.

    The VG racing is a chassis brace and dont help with the driveshaft from wobbles.

    I haven't tested it yet if I can get it to fit on Tekno BB, plus BB isn't any bigger than stock driveshaft, my problem is getting the bearing to fit at the end of BB where that pin drive is.

    That is actually a XO-1 center carrier cut in half and trim to look like that now, you can see it on my thread.

    I just picked up the Tekno Big Bone. I watched a video on youtube and they had to use a dremel on a piece of the front chassis of their slash 4x4 so it doesn't rub. I'm gonna install late afternoon and maybe that wont be necessary with the rally.

    @Humay.....is that your rally in those pics? If so, where was the Tekno BB rubbing for you?

    the rubbing is from the front drive cup onto the chassis so, dremmel is the way to go to get rid of the rub.

    Thanks for all your help guys. You were right about the rubbing. I noticed even the stock driveshaft was rubbing too! Used a dremel and big bone works perfectly.
