I would say one or the other, it's just too much non-flexing items on the car that will take the beefed up dcj, it will bend it but not break it. If you break it then that's one heavy hit resulting in possibly hurting some aluminum also. The arms don't give which is the strongest part of the car to the plastic parts and with all three as solid as they are they will find the easy stress point of course.

I see, tough decision. Do you know approximately how long before the new cvd set up hit the shelves? I need a new set to hit the track but I don't want to order the old set and the the new release arrives I'd rather wait.

Default temp djc fix

Someone at the track discovered this apparent temporary fix and maybe a reinforcing trick for the front drives. He had a broken internal ball/socket joint. The car was making a rattling/vibration noise. He put on additional heat shrink to hold the drive shaft side centered and drove a few laps and all was good.

Not sure how long this will hold up or that it will help strengthen the drive but I will have a better report after Sunday's race. It will put additional work load on the steering servo but I believe most are overkill on torque anyway.

Default An Update?

Dunno for sure, R2 hasn't posted, but we just got a set of DJCs from NH and they appear different. The new drive shaft doesn't have center holes in the coupling sleeve. If you rotate and bend the drive shaft by hand with the holes you can feel and see the internal ball/socket actually catch on those holes. Wondering if this an planned upgrade or some sort of coincidence.

Yes there has been a running change and currently all the stock is the running change items for the dcj's so what you see in the pic is gen 3 production. So far so good with the new items but I have not went to TQ to run them only Cal and the first round of the HPI race I have went to with the new DCJ's, I did skip the outside board a little in the race but no harm done to the other car other than a small tear on the body running 13.5.

That's good news. I didn't disassemble my drive to check out the ball/cup assembly. I'm assuming that the ball standoff/stem is beefier. That was the problem area.

Make sure you wreck alot to give them drives the best crash test. Lol

You're latest paint scheme really "Pops". It should be very easy to spot on the track.

Default Upgraded brace

Installed the steering brace. It's pretty trick to tie the top plate to the steering linkage and to the chassis. It gets rid of that lame non-anodized aluminum standoff. Not sure why it's called a servo saver support when there's no servo saver.

Hey, yeah it's pricey but the kit is so affordable, why not?

The ball is slightly bigger and the stem is also bigger. Let me know how the brace works. It looks cool
