What in the world are you guys doing to blow out the lockerr? Had mine for months and not a prob at all, and i play alot!! Try putting a slipper on the rig, that will solve almost all driveline issues........

Mine haven't failed, but they sure have developed a bunch of slop... although after swapping for Traxxas drive shafts and throwing a washer behind the upper link ball joints, this would be the next weakest link.

X3 slippers are for.............. whatever; screw slippers for crawlin. My lockers are a lil' sloppy too. That set screw idea seems like it would work great. I was thinking about steel lockers as well, I'll see if I can turn some at work here in the next few days. Will update with pics.
