Hi Chris my friend ...

Well yeah, i've been racing just offroad since early 2006 and right now im CEN Racing factory driver and for other brands, but purely offroad 1/8.

I started to race GT Class with a OFNA DM-ONE couple weeks ago just for fun, and here in my country electric touring its starting on 13,5 brushless and nimh batts ... im sooo out of budget due a heavy motorcycle accident couple weeks ago (i barely can move my right arm) so im looking for something low budget and good enough as a start ...

cya, im very happy to at least say "hi" to you man !!

and korey thankz for those ideas ill try and use some of them
On top of not using a proper handle-mounted allen key, you prolly have lube on the threads of the grub screw. Disassemble, flush thoroughly with motor spray, relube carefully (tamiya anti-wear grease is fantastic) and reassemble with threadlock. Be careful not to grease the treads or threadlocking the whole CVD

I doubt that. They are always working on something new. It's just something that's kept on the down low. No big signs in the pits saying check out the prototype!!

Default New Driveshafts!

Hello Everyone,

Hiro Kasuya from Hot Bodies USA R&D asked me to post this up for everyone to see. Hot Bodies has been working on developing improved driveshafts with greater efficiency. When installed on the front of the car, they will reduce the common "chatter" we experience when using a spool or turning at extreme angles. Testing has shown that they also provide a little more steering overall!!! Release date is to be announced, so stay tuned!

Hiro my hero! I'll take two please.

What will they call these new driveshafts? HB Double Jointed Driveshafts - DJD's

These look identical to the LOSI LCD's. I hope the price is similar and not in the XRAY luxury price range.

How are they holding up? Do they last? How is maintenence? Just wondering about durability/usability. Not everyone drives like Hara. Especially me...LOL

I have been running them for quite a while and they still work great. I do clean them up and add some grease once in a while but that's it. As for the durability, I would say they have pretty much the same durablity as the regular universal/cvd shafts. I didn't break any DCJ Shafts but i'm way too far from Hara's level I think i'm good enough for durability testing for you guys.

Thanks,
