Narrow your car width. The only real solution is CVD's.

use more o rings or thick fuel tubin only on the diff cup joint, no matter the width, if you hit nothing, it wont pop out

You can get Kawahara parts from www.rcnitronation.com Give Jim a call (I think that's his name), he has mostly all of the Kawahara parts u need. I just got some Kawahara and JP parts from him.

Went out to BPT yesterday and man this car rocks! The OS motor is really smooth and has plenty of power. I had an issue with the dogbones falling out and had to adjust the track width and use fuel tubing instead of the O-rings. After adjusting steering travel as well they stood in place and I never lost them again. So far no stripping of the spur and no breakage with some clean driving. The 2speed was set perfect thanks to someone mentioning to start with the screws 4.5turns out from fully tightened. I'm at 6 turns out and it shifts perfectly for my track. The car is being ran using specs from the factory setup sheet and stock foams at 64mm rear and 62mm in the front. I will be trying the yellow clutch shoe and probably the G4S disc brake with/with out the optional pads to see how much better it is. The stock setup is sufficient, but I noticed after they wore in being that they were new I had to increase my brake a little (10% or so). Still debating whether or not to get the Universals for the car as for $80 I can buy a bunch of spare parts. Overall I give the car 2 thumbs up as it does feel faster and smoother than the R40. No prob with the urethane belts either or anything else with the car. Awesome day to be outdoors and looking forward to more runs with the car and more people.

I'm happy to hear that the car is working out for you. It seemed like next to forever before you decided on what to get. The fun is just getting started.

Time will tell if you feel you need the universals. Once you lose one in a race, it will be the last time that happens, if you know what I mean.

I wouldn't get universals, unless you have a problem with the dogbones constantly popping out. I just finished a race weekend with dogbones front and rear with no problems. It's cheaper in the long run too.

In the rear, you donīt really need the CVDs, but in the front, the car becomes smoother.
