    Driveshaft and slipper rubbing

    So the last couple of runs I've noticed that the slipper and center driveshaft was rubbing on plastic cover. I've tried lots of thing to fix it but it ends up rubbing again!
    Any ideas?

    Check the motor mount, it may be loose or it could be the bearing. If you can, a picture will help us find what could be the problem?

    Yep, same thing for me. I can almost say it's normal. I did the center cover modification so I don't have this problem anymore.

    Check that your motor isn't placed too low or anything that may push down onto the actual driveshaft. Also check to make sure your driveshaft isn't warped (mine was).
