    Left driveshaft problems???

    alright for awhile now my slash has been turning to the right and I have no idea what it is, it's really starting to get annoying, my trim is perfectly fine my front wheels are facing straight, also my slash turn right a lot sharper then it does left, right now I notices my right driveshaft spins full power and the left barely rotates at all is this normal I'll post a quick vid

    ok so it's not letting me save the vid, I'm sure you get the point when I hit the throttle the left driveshaft doesn't rotate at all, right about when I'm full throttle it'll barely rotate and the right 1 is spinning full speed

    check for binding, damaged drive shafts, missing pins. it could also be a broken gear in the diff.do you do a lot donuts?

    it seem fixed now I took off the tires held the right drive shaft so it couldn't spin and the left one was getting full power then after doing that a couple times they were both spinning but the left one slows down faster but at full throttle they both seem to be getting all power

    another thing ever since I installed my rpm hybrid gearcase w/ the 0degree mounts my left side has almost no toe in while the right side is normal like when it comes out the box w/ original toe in

    Do you have the other mounts that came with the rpm case?
    I doubt you did,but make sure you didn't accidentally put the left one on up side down,on the 3 degree mount,that would give you o toe.
    And you might have a bad planetary gear in your diff.

    yes I got the 0degree and 3degree mounts, I have the 0degree ones on and I double checked to make sure their both on correct, it seems fine now but some times after running it seems almost lined up w/ the front, well I'm going to go right now to a bash spot so I'll see what happens when I'm done

    just got back from some light bashing, I guess the toe in is less on the left side but maybe it just looks off to the eye cause the truck handled pretty well, the only thing is after I turn right the truck swerves slightly to the right until I turn left then it moves straight but I'm pretty sure it's the bell crank cause it's stock and it has a lot of play

    Your servo saver may be shot,I don't use servo savers,or your bell crank could be shot?
    The second pic is what i use for bell cranks,they come with bearings and everything you need,this one is to replace on two years old,its not broke,im just board,the last pic on the left,is a way to go with out a servo saver, and still have a bit of give.
