Default losi 8t 2.0 front drive shaft binding

So I rebuilt the whole drive train(new cvd's, dogdones, couplers, everything) and the only issue i see is that the front(center) drive shaft is binding alittle bit at the pinion coupler. Should i take it out and see if i did something wrong or is this normal until the cvd "wears in". Thanks.

Should be fine after a couple runs, just needs to break in. You racing in Watson this weekend?

I would personally pull it apart and do a quick inspection, there should be No binding what so ever.

+1


I've seen where too much loctite on the set screw will cause it to bind up at an angle if excess loctite gets all over the pin and driveshaft end and then dries. And I'm referring to the actual cvd assembly on the end of the driveshaft where it bolts to the pinion. I would take it completely apart and clean it all and then just use a dab of loctite on the set screw when you reassemble the driveshaft.
