On our carpet track I am going thru rear out drives like crazy. I can't keep spending $35 every month for this. Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong?

Are they snapping in half or just wearing out?
Ifsnapping the uni is plunging too deep into the outdrives . Ur on carpet so you must have internal shock limiters right.pkus you need an o ring on the outside. Ive snapped a cpl fronts already. I also changed the lil pills to move the hinge pins further out .

Seriously wearing out. And it's wearing out on the reverse side. Not as bad or as fast on the forward side.

Ya, and for high grip the team drivers were running Hudy 1,000,000!

Are the pins flat on your axles? Maybe they need replacing . Turn your breaks down some. And maybe your current limiter. Carpets hard on all the metal parts reguardless.

Slightly flat. Guess I need to get a pinning tool. Thanks, I'll try the other stuff too.

Is anyone else missing the 4 o-rings used for up stop on the outside of the shock shafts? My 15 kit was missing them. Just wondering if they are required or not?

They were not in my kit either. I thought about that as I was building the shocks. If you look at the manual, you can see an o-ring on the shaft in some of the illustrations, but not the others . . . strange

Comes in the little paper manual that's in the packaging with the centre diff kit. 500k for low grip and 1,000,000 for high grip. It's slacker than I thought it'd feel even with 500k in there.
