I think my double joint drive shafts were slightly short, which caused them to expand the out drives and get imprisoned in the holes???
I broke the out drives trying to get the shafts out

Do the delrin outdrives hold up?

If that is where the dogbone sits in the outdrive, the shaft may be too short. Maybe 40mm or 42mm?

I have used 44mm to 46mm without any issues on the plastic spool.

Hey (0000000000000000000)
Honestly, if an XI with a descent setup is running 10.5 seconds consistently, could one save a few hundredth of seconds if upgrading to an Ultimate?
With the same electronics.

And are they coming out with an Ultimate 2015 any time soon?

Spending money to get better equipment will always improve things. Personally, I believe you would achieve greater gains by switching to a Trinity D4 motor (certified).

I've snapped 3 SSK shafts now. Is there another brand with similar length thats stronger than the ones from 3racing?

The boards love my car =T

When you snapped the ssk, did you also break knuckles and hubs?

Broke my hub and knuckle one time when an ssk snapped. Another time it snapped by itself.

Interesting. I have run them all season without any breaking. My knuckles/hubs will break on a hard enough hit. But no SSK's yet.

In my case, there was no hit and my shafts were 44mm. My friend who gave me those shafts also gave me some full outdrives that will never open

Well the aluminum top deck bent...LOL
What a new car though. I dont know if it's the floating servo mount, the 3mm shims under the inner ball links or the new springs but had no traction rolls at all.

Now my only setup issue is that the rear feels twitchy getting out of turns. I'm gonna try going down on diff oil from the 5000Wt I am using. Also maybe a smaller swaybar in the rear (now running the biggest one)

Thanks all and (00000000000000000) for the help. Now if I could just be more consistent...LOL

5000 is trez trez thick for 17.5 motors. The oil in the kit is 2000, and that's more than enough. Maybe use 3000 or 3500 if you are running a slightly faster motor or want the car to rotate around the corners just a litte bit less..
