Default Steel Dogbone upgrade question...

I'm having a slight problem with my stock nylon dogbones popping out from time to time (HPI E10) when I barely bump other cars during races.

Will the Universal Drive Shaft upgrade to steel dogbones help with this issue?

Do they stay in place better than the stock ones?

Thanks up front!

With Universal Drive Shaft upgrade, the axle is connected to the dog bone via the universal joint. So, yes it will help. At least they won't go flying when ya smack something.

Also, check the ball cups, they sound like the might be loose on the ball studs.

If that's the case, new parts may be in order.

A quick fix for loose ball cups = The EASIEST FIX METHOD = Punch out 5/16 diameter disks (or cut 5/16 pieces) of a Zip Lock Bag.
Install one disk (or piece) centered over each ball studs.
Carry spares = nothing lasts forever.
