Default Problems whit my 808 2009 buggy bearings

Hi guys. I have problems with my buggy, My buggy is breaking the ball bearings that are located in the pinion of the differential. The bearings only last me 2 to 3 hours of use. Is this normal? Is there any solution?
thanks for your answers and sorry for my English

Default Ok here it goes...

Take the shaft out, put one shim on the shaft side of the pinion gear, then the bearing. then put the other spacer on then the other bearing. this will take up the slop and make your drivetrain smoother....

Dremel out 2MM more on the center diff outdrives. make it so that the pins on the CVD's do not jam into the cups with severe chassis flex or jump landings

also slop in your drivetrain will cause blown bearings pay attention to the coupler, and the end of the CVD ( round hole ) worn out chassis, and sloppy chassis braces will also contribute to blown bearings. I have learned it all the hard way..Keep an eye on the pinion gears also, they do wear out and need replacing every 6-10 gallons of fuel
