YES ITS TRUE in EVO1 ~ EVO3, it does use 1 piece driveshaft - gear may damage when chassis flex due to mis alignment gear tooth contact

in oldie TC3, then new EVO4, PRO4, LCG, etc.. by the 3 pcs shaft design, actually front and rear gearbox permit slight flex on chassis without damage the gear at all...
