I bent a few on my 05... I just straightened them out with a couple of pliers or a vice

I have bent 2 with a spool. I have hit the boards just right to do this. With a P-dub bumper even.

I have bent 1 back to make it work. I have a nice piece of bar stock with a V groove machined in the center to place the dog bone on and hit it back straight with a hammer. This was for the old RC10 from years ago.

I bent one on the first day of driving it and one of our LFGs also bent one. But it seems to me that compared to PlainOleSteel or aluminum, these Hudy spring steel driveshafts are superb. Just sit and think about how much force it takes to bend one and U gotta realize it's My/Your driving NOT the T2 that needs some tweaking!

Hey Tim, Are you looking at what the T2 has to offer. My wheels fit on my car with no problem.

Is this your first car with a one-way? I assume you are bending the front drive shafts?

With a oneway the drive shafts will twist when one wheel locks up (by hitting a board for example). The oneway will continue to apply force and twist the shaft.

Depending on the track you may consider running a front diff, that will prevent the drive shaft from bending.

I haven't bent one, and I came from a Pro4 where I broke Titanium axels, bent CVD's, and constantly blew gears with the way I drive. I've actually found the XRAY shafts to be harder to bend then most...but each person has their own experience.

I've decided to get the Xray T2 Luxury Competition Touring car and the multi-diff. What should I get for spare parts and upgrades? I'd like to do this up front and not buy a piece here and a piece there...

I do plan on sitting down and reading this thread tonight to get a better understanding of the car and settings....

So look for more questions... THX in advance!

You might want to consider getting a BMi chassi for a upgrade.The chassis kit comes with a 3mm chassis that is pocketed down to 2mm under the bulkheads, arms, standoffs and steering rack. It comes with 3mm top decks(front and rear) that allow for narrow or wide bracing with standoffs, front and rear. 3mm shock towers and all needed hardware are also included.-129.99 www.bmiracing.com

You also might want to get aluminum steering knuckles and aluminum rear hubs.



Check Xray's website for set up sheets to get your car tuned in and just look at the parts and upgrades they have on their car.
