Have a pic of breakage ?

Cvd just snapped, maybe a bad one, IDK- nosed in to a small, lower speed double, no crash, but handled really bad afterwards (3 wheel drive)..lol

Maybe you should retire from R/C?

If droop is too much the excesive angle on the bevel of the output cuts into the bone head. No PUN..I used to take my dremel to the bevel edge of my outdrives on some older rides, but didnt need to be that drastic on my TD cars. Check the other side?
My wife thinks I should retire..

That looks like a manufacturing issue. Never seen that before. You could try contacting TD esp if the buggy is new.

First run out, had maybe 25-30 laps on it when it let go, no signs of wear, other than the a little tickle from full lock, but its on the opposite end of the cvd..

I would definitely contact TD- I've never seen anything like that since we've been running TD cars.

How's tbat Tresrey body? That extra speed prob pushed the shaft over the edge....

That was it I bet (shaking head) knew it wasn't my driving...In hindsight, there was a little binding in the steering, which I narrowed down to this part during assembly..Maybe I will get a hold of them..who knows ??
