    So this was sarcasm? But I don't see why. The design seems good to me and has been proven to work so far.

    Also, yours being straight proves nothing. This mod is for those who jump their X-Maxxes very high. I would suggest it's not worth bothering with if you've not bent your stock one, unless you want to build the truck to cope with anything in anticipation of doing big jumps.

    The chassis is pretty rigid, and to bend the driveshaft you'd have to make it flex a fair bit, so that's going to take a pretty hard landing.

    I was skeptical myself as well but had a neighbor that has am xmaxx 8s and he bent his driveshaft 2 times jumping some high jumps. So I made him one of the center driveshaft braces with bearings and he has been jumping the same high jumps and is telling me no issues yet after 4 days straight.

    I don't know if I can get in toruble for offering these on here but I am making some cool parts for the Xmaxx and selling on facebook group.
