    Drive Shaft Mod

    Hi, I have seen two ways to keep rocks out of drive shaft. I saw someone enclose the drive shaft in a carbon fiber tube (don't want) and others use material draped around driveshaft. Any details on this mod? Thanks

    something my and my buddy did on our slash's awhile back was take some black tape and cover the hole where the driveshaft comes out and then just cut an X in it and run the driveshaft through. its not as good a fix as the carbon fiber tube but it did work for awhile. its not a permanent fix and will need to be redone every now and then but itll work for small rocks and some of the dirt

    I agree its a real pain, and almost seems like rocks appear out if nowhere.

    I'll keep watching to see if someone posts a cheap easy permanent fix

    I have seen some posts about gluing on neoprene around the hole. Suppose to work well. I am going to get some neoprene and try it out. I will report back. They mentioned making sure you scuff up the plastic so the glue will adhere well.
