    Bent Center Driveshaft

    My son and I bash our cars pretty hard. He has bent 2 center drive shafts now. It looks like under running conditions the center drive shaft is rubbing on the bottom of the chasis where the drive shaft passes though to the front diff. Any ideas on correcting this issue? I think I'm going to take the dremeland enlarge the hole. Any suggestions for a stronger drive shaft?

    I run a STRC, seems to be doing well. The Tekno is probably the strongest, lots of people have very good things to say about it.
    Cheap, Fast, Reliable. Pick 2.

    I run the center shaft from Tekno and I would say it is the strongest part on my rally next to the KHZ mount. They look awesome too!

    I would also recommend the Tekno Drive shaft, it holds up very well!

    After a short run at the skate park last night I think I disovered the main problem. The chassis is cracked allowing the front end to flex and bendind the shaft on hard impacts. Ordered a new chassis this morning. Has anyone installed the chassis brace from VGR? I'm wondering if it really stiffens the chassis and removes the flex.

    Thanks for the replies.

    VG Racing makes a great chassis brace. This will almost stop the front of the chassis from bending under stress and keep it from breaking, as well as stop bending drive shafts.
