    Question Yay for field repairs!

    Hey guys! I got back from torturing my slash's poor suspension, and i noticed at home, the new FL driveshaft that i replaced before the run ALREADY has a little play in the U-joint. The FR driveshaft is about to fail me too, still original without a replacement yet. How do i stop these things from wearing out? .___. I haven't tried oil yet, but i did reduce the bunny starts and the dime stops almost completely this run, and still it's already worn out a little bit. Also, does anyone recommend super-gluing the suspension shaft to the little T-connector that connects the metal shaft to the bottom suspension arm? where the bottom stopper for the spring, sits. I've had them pull apart twice each on the FL and RL connectors. I already have aluminum shock caps *p.s i lost a diaphragm, is this a big problem? If so, which side, front or back, should i have that shock on, to keep running till it arrives? It's on the front currently.*



    YAY FOR OBLITERATING MY STUFF
    I like to go fast, okay?

    Oil probably is to a bad place to start. It’s amazing how far basic maintenance and lubrication goes on these little machines.
