Replacing Universal Double Jointed Drive Shaft Mission-D (DR

Postby Mandy » Sun Nov 10, 2013 4:20 pm

So I ordered a Mission-D off of Hobbyking, and after a little bit of playing with it I noticed one of my wheels had stopped moving. I thought I had broken the front diff at first, but upon further inspection, it turns out it was the front universal double joint drive shaft; somehow it had fallen apart at the ball joint and lost whatever screw was holding them together.

HK has the part on backorder, so I've been looking at Yokomo/Team Suzuki/Overdose replacement drive shafts, but I noticed none of them seem do be double jointed, unlike the front ones I currently have.

I was just wondering if anyone had a recommendation, and if the non-double jointed ones were better, or if I would be better off getting a longer drive shaft.

Double-jointed swingshafts are used in touring to smooth out wobble caused by front spool. In drifting, front one-way and good single-jointed swingshafts are usually used.
