I'll try to help but I need some more info....Are you using the stock plastic outdrives? Do both grub screws turn in the outdrives? Now for the silliest question....are the grub screws lining up on the flat portion coming out of the differential? I may not be able to post back until later but I will try to help you out.

Hey! I think you may have two problems. 1-the opening in the plastic outdrive that slides over the output of the diff may be worn out enough to allow it to turn on the shaft enough when you are going forward even though the grub screws appear tight and 2-the threads in the outdrives may be worn out also which would cause the grub screw to vibrate loose and then when you hit the brakes there is enough play in everything to cause the shaft to spin. Just a couple of thoughts but something you may want to look at. They are cheap enough to replace and if you want to spend more dough the hardend outdrives are mint! Let me know what you find!

Just a note we used the metal pieces when we raced a Rusty for a while because they came with it when I bought the truck and had no troubles. I put cvd's on our 'Pede but when they started falling apart I went back to the plastic outdrives and stock axles and haven't had any problems either. Let me know what you find when you take the plastic ones off. Thanks.

I'm using the stock outdrives/sun gears and plastic axles. Mine have holes drilled through the flat part that the grub screws go all the way through. If yours don't have them you could always drill them out and run them with a longer grub screw through the shaft. I've been using those original ones on mine for almost three years' worth of two or three race nights per week. Never replaced them cuz they still work fine.

Good idea Dan, drilling out would certainly help and provide a cheap fix! I like the stock plastic pieces also....they are lighter than the metal pieces and generally give good life.

The new style (current production) side gears are already drilled and the outdrives now come with both grub screws and long screws that go all the way thru-much better setup and you can upgrade both parts for about $10.
