Does seem odd that you are getting a lot of wear. I am on my orginal driveshafts, race on high grip carpet and astroturf, race every week and am probobaly doing 6 or so runs a week since september plus a load of practice days at 10+ packs a time.

Maybe try the driveshaft boots off the DEX410 and use a small amount of graphite greast. Could be the dirt you are racing on causing excessive wear.

The dirt would be a good theory, but most people run b4's at my track and see nowhere near the wear.

It may have been mentioned before, but I noticed the instruction manual has several errors / omissions in the assembly instructions. The online version seems to have corrected those mistakes; just an FYI to any newcomers starting their build

I believe you are experiencing whats called "traction" and I am jealous..lol
All kidding aside, I wish I could help, but I dont see that happen very often..
Post up some more details/info about the track, tires, car set up, and someone here will help you out..

nothing wrong with a little traction

this is hardpacked dirt treated with soiltac, rear tires are "controlled" proline calibers

suspention I had was a little on the softside, because it was bumpy as hell, the soft suspention makes chassis roll some more. the soiltack gave great traction, otherwise the rear would slide a bit and keeping all wheels to the ground

NICE, I have seen our track "come up" once on a windy day, and I was lost, car was good but i didnt know how to drive it..Only time our tires do stuff like that is when we hit a rock.. We are getting a new indoor track this winter, and I am considering trying out MM4 config, as the dirt stays much more consistent..

Inside rear on entry or inside front on exit?

Rear on entry- Try a stiffer front spring.

Front on exit- The car is hooked up, as long as it is not causing a severe push leave it alone.

Could be several things. Position of shocks on the tower, dampening too soft or too stiff. Weight bias, battery too far forward or back.

Are you running a particular set up? Which one? Hard pack, carpet, or dirt. Need more info to help.

Are you getting grip/traction roll at all?

Thanks every one for your help . It is the front , loads of grip and I like the look . But thought it may be quicker if all wheels stay on the ground Sorry didn't know what info you needed. I am running a full size battery standerd springs and 30wt oil all around on a med outdoor dirt track
