Do i need some serrated nuts ? bearings worn?
Yeah new lock nuts or serrated ones will fix it. It could also be that the thread on the cvd is damaged in some way. Maybe check the cvd before putting new lock nuts on. Had a guy running a mini loose his front tire in two finals last week on the opening laps with a damaged thread.

Thanks for the input , i think i've found the problem, on full lock the wheels are just catching ,hence vibration and loosening nuts. Do you guys all use 0 offset wheels?

I see it's a common problem with the spool on full lock solved by the Double Joint Universal Shafts.

I can get the spec-r version 2 ones straight away or is it worth waiting for the Yokomo/Arrowmax ones or both do the same job?

been running the spec-r version 2 DCJ's and I can say that because it does not use grub screws, they are more reliable and I guess require less rebuilds than the Yokomo DCJ's or the spec-r version 1's.

My Yokomo DCJ's broke the 2nd day i used them (practice). The spec-r ones seem to be holding fine, and have used them already for practice days and a club race. So far so good

Think i'll give the spec-r ones a go, never really noticed the problem as my other bd5 has a litemodz spool.

If you use the Xray pins in the yoke DCJs and secure with heat shrink they'll be bulletproof

ive tried the spec-r ver.2 and litemodz driveshafts and would have to say the spec-r ver. 2 ones seem to do the job better. the litemods still have a tad bit of chatter at full lock from my experience plus the extra play coming from the slightly smaller pins on the drive cup end gives even more play. have yet to test the yoke ones but i have one on order. at first glance they look like a flimsy design and i can imagine how the grub screw assembly can become a problem. among all the double jointed driveshafts, seems the good 'ol Losi ones that came with the JRXS from years ago was the simplest (used shrink tubes to secure the pins) and just as effective.

let you guys know how things go with the yokomo ones.

You forgot the price difference. I also found that the material on the spec-r tends to bend rather than snap, which I guess is a good thing.

I have been using the spec-r ones for these past 2 months in bd5wxi. They have worked flawlessly to date.

Wanted to ask you guys what top camber link settings you are on when it comes to shims on the inner and outer end fr & rr. I mostly race on med grip asphalt with both fast corners and tight hairpins.
