Default driveshafts

i shall be phoning cml (uk yok distibutpr) 2morrow to find out what they will do about it! I refuse to pay for new driveshafts or to continue to pay for hubs that keep breaking! I will be getting something out of them as this is a design fault or manufacturing fault and not me hitting walls or badly building a kit!

I admit i never had a problem with MR4-TC driveshafts and i dont know why these ones are giving me so much trouble, but Yokomo have to provide after sales service for such problems! especially when im paying hundreds of pounds or dollars for their equipment!

I dont know that it's a design fault because you are the only person that seems to have the problem. I wish you had a pic of your built driveshaft, I'd like to see if something looks out of order...

hmmm i wouldnt say im the only one.... there has been 3 people at my club with the same problem, the shaft is built correctly and lubed correctly. there is no reason due to poor maintenance or anything like that. I will see what cml say but i cant see why 3 cars should have exactly the same problem?

It's something about your track then... It may be too dusty or something, and they just need more maintenence, like every couple runs or something.

Intermision: Looks like a front bumper.
This bumper is included in the kit but won´t fit the SD. It is the bumper of the old BD car....

Actually I think it's a rear body mount for certain types of bodies If I remember right.
