Default Buggy Center Drive shaft

how often do you guys bend the the center drive shaft? my is slightly bend... very slightly only noticable when you push the buggy and the shaft is spinning. do i wait till i bend it further more before i change or do i change it as long as it's not 100% straight?

I'm running MBX5 Prospec

Never. The chassis would need to be folded in half to bend a center shaft.

The rear shaft on my old K3 got a noticeable bow in it. I just replaced it b/c it made me feel better.
