The rears will wear faster then the fronts typcially. As others have pointed out the drive shaft pins are worn as well. A worn pin will slap the outdrives and accelerate wear as well. Did you replace the drive shafts when you upgraded to HD outdrives or were the pins already worn when you put the HD outdrives in.

With 100-130 runs on them I am not sure there is much customer service would do for you as that is quite a lot of runtime. Lets put this in perspective. Lets say you averaged 15mph and 10 min a battery at 100 runs you would have put around 250 miles on this truck! I would put new HD outdrives in as well as repalce the bones.

Check the axles though as well. There are two sets of holes in the axle for the cross pin so if one is worn switch to the other to make your axles last longer.
It's not just the pins, Casper.. LOL, look at his bone!! It's bent... Well there's your problem!

By any chance is there some sort of tire reference guide that shows what tire is best for different track condissions when racing a 4x4 sc truck?.With all the different types of tires that are made for a sc truck and the testing that is done when a new tire comes on the market it would seem like there would be stats that show what tire works best for differents types of tracks. Chances are it most likly comes down to personal preferance.

That drive pin doesn't look that bad IMO , but weavty1 is correct you don't wanna use really worn pins as they will gouge out the outdrive pretty quick .
When I built this truck, I junked the diffs, and rebuilt them all with the HD Cases, and HD outdrives so thats not the issue. The dogbones were brand new. I bought the kit, w/ a HD driveline.

My dog bone isn't bent, its the angle of the picture.

I run on a rather large outdoor track, with a bit of mud from time to time. I figured that had to play a role. These are indeed the rears. My front and centers aren't bad at all. No wear. I guess I needed to factor in, that I run on a more rough track.

I brought the truck new, Meaning it had new dog bones when I installed the HD Cases, HD Outdrives. My axles/Dogbones are fine.

I already ordered some Tekno stuff, going to give those a try.

Thanks for the help.

The spacer goes in between the two bearings reason being is that both bearing turn at different rpm's in different dirctions its not good to have the two bearings touching each other..If you have noticed the with stock motormount and front up right with the single bearing there was about a 1/16 of a inch play in the stock mounts with the dual bearing the play is gone which means your drive shafts will turn much more truer. Hope this helps and ask questions if there is something your not sure about most people on here are willing to help.

thanks for the help my friend.

on the right side if you look i put something it came on the kit , some sort of a washer or insert... is that ok? and on the left the bearing is sticking out is that ok? if i try to move the left tower is very weak (maybe because i have to put the top brace) I forgot to buy the top brace , i just order the part.

Your talking about the thin shim part#losb 3570 i dont even bother using those on my scte. Never had a problem with it not being there.As far as that goes its not even listed on the replacement parts list page in the ten scte manual.

What batteries does everyone have good luck with? I have been running a couple NanoTechs 6600 with my Novak Havoc Pro SC and 4.5 550. At the end of a 10 minute run they are always puffed a bit. I just ordered a Hobbywing 4000kv combo and wanted to get a couple new batteries. Not sure if the puffing is because of the batteries or the Novac system.
