Finally got some more universals in yesterday and will try and do some steering throw limiting to keep from breaking them. Should know Sunday how the fix works.

well what i found happened when i broke my universal was the set screw backed out. It has some thread lock on it from the factory but its not enough. i caught another universal before it broke...the steering was jumping at full lock when the car was moving so i pulled it off the track and checked it over. i saw the setscrew had backed out halfway and was being chewed at by the universal cup...and it was binding the drive train at full lock steering. i have not had any more problems breaking them after i went through and put more thread lock on all the set screws. put a big drop on it...that should be your fix right there.
