Question Driveshaft with steep angle capability's

i just installed gmade zero 104mm into my dingo, they are super smooth shocks. But now my driveshafts are binding. Whats the driveshaft that fits dingo wheelbase that can take a worse angle than the stock wb8 driveshaft?

You installed shocks for a wraith,should have went with 94mm for a scx10. Now you need different upper link's to adjust for the extra shock length.

I have Gmade zero 104mm shocks in my scx10 too. I installed a shock lift/lowering kit and angled the shocks so the ride height is the same as with the 93mm shocks. This is what I have...Axial SCX10 Lift Kit or Lower Kit Fits Rubicon Honcho and Dingo | eBay

As said above, you purchased the wrong shocks, 93mm is what you need for the SX10. So pick up one the of the "lift" or "droop"kits that bolt to the shock hoops, install and use it as a lowering kit......or get the correct shocks.

One of the guys in our club runs the 103" Gmade shocks with the droop kit and he really likes that setup.

my driveshafts are right on the edge of binding though, i can still drive it on the rocks but if i pick it up the axles start to hop due to the driveshafts.

You're using the stock shafts right? Try the Junfac's. I bought the ones that fit the wraith for my honcho. So far, I'm very happy with them. There is one design flaw they have though, which isn't an issue unless you're running over very rocky areas...the snap rings that capture the joint pins are on the outside of the housing, which can pop off while running over rocks. I don't have that issue here on the west coast of FL. The only rocks around here are used for landscaping lol

Toss some limiters inside your shocks so it doesn't droop far enough to bind the drive shafts.

I also run a wraith tranny which technically makes the shaft angle steeper .... I recently switched to 100mm kings for more of a c3 truggy look after buying a tundra hard body

I run 100mm kings with stock everything. And no issues. Maybe it's just the 4mm difference.
