I like everything except for the rear center drive shaft.
I figure they could make it longer instead of using that long as coupler piece.
I will have one ordered as soon as its available though.

I looked at that design an I think it is a reason for it... I have been running truggy for a while an have tweaked quite a few rear center shaft from chassis flex (on a normal rear lenght truggy). I think by keeping the shaft shorter this will take the chance of the rear center drive shaft bending. Looks like if the rear of the chassis flex, it will kinda pivot right where the adapter and drive shaft meet?? I think if it was one long nomal shaft, we would have problems with that shaft bending or tweaking due to chassis flex...

I'm know master of design... just thinking out loud I already got my name on one when they arrive
