Are you using one way diff? Maybe one of one way bearing worn out. Did you check the axle bearings? A bad bearing at one side may cause this problem.

What about all the universals? Are they all in good shape? Your problem sounds like a drivetrain problem rather than suspension problem.
Yes I'm running the one-way! The car exhibited this behaviour from new!! I soaked all the bearings before build so they are running very free on bearing oil only. Anyway, I will do a full strip and check this time...for it's final chance!

I don't want to get into the senario of adding all those weights on the car....it is already pretty heavy!!

Oh, he had quite a few options already...alloy hubs and alloy shaft carrier...I think the latter does quite a lot to prevent the spur being stripped!!

Manticore- I just realised I charged you the wrong price for the bumper stay.....that was the non-discounted price!! I'll give you back the difference next time I see you......it was a long time ago when I bought!!

finally, i can be online again !!! miss HK a lot !
too bad that i cannot access internet at home yet (need to find apartment to move cuz still stay in services apartment provided by company) so no icq for at least a month. but at least i can access internet at work !
air is hot here, expecting some rain to lower the temp ! pass by the RC track in the way to my home from airport. god, it is such a long way to go to the track from my home ! a real car seems to be necessary, but the wife won't approve the budget until she join me next year !!! and actally i can get a benz in HK for the same cost of buying a civic in SG need to think about it seriously.
ppl are friendly here in general, and girls are wearing less clothes
the bad thing is i need to cook and clean/dry/press my clothes by my self until i rent my apartment and hire a mate.
u guys need to update me on any new products available in HK !!! pls !!!!
