ok, lost my 3rd center/front driveshaft. ready to try packing the coupler with grease for the next one. will associated black grease work for this?

I use that. I also had some seized bearings in the front tranny - I stopped breaking the front coupler after putting in some decent bearings.

bearings don't have anything to do with it. it's the angle of the driveshaft that is the issue.

If a bearing is seized your going to have the motor applying force to a drive shaft that cannot move as freely as it should. I'm not saying its the only cause - only that when I pulled them I stopped busting the coupler. YMMV

Yes it will,have not had a problem since going to grease it just seems to attract more dirt
Should work jus fine till the new ones start to show

Me and a few of my buddys have tried various JConcept bodys and they all failed miserably and were quickly destroyed. Thier Lexan seems more brittle than other manufacters. I watched BL420 totally destroy his brand new Jconcets body within a few packs practicing, the damn thing grenaded for the most part.

Ditto on the JConcepts bodies. None of mine have lasted long at all.

Really looking forward to putting a Copperhead system to the test! Should be an awesome setup for the price.
