No problem. This is my personal routine, Always check the driveling for any binding after each qualifier and race. I always take buggy apart after race weekend and check bearings and replace if necessary. The cvd last a while but you have to check the dogbone section where it hits the outdrives they wear down and cause some slop. Main thing if your not sure if its worn out replace it anyways lol. Hope this helps

Do you need to lube the bearings on the hubs, and diff cases? or are they so sealed they retain the factory lube? And do you run the cvd's dry so they dont attract grit? Thanks 871
