Default TRX4 driveshaft wobble

New RC guy here. Iíve got the TRX-4 Defender, and am having a ton of fun with it. Iíve just done some maintenance and noticed my rear driveshaft has a slight wobble to it, like itís off-center. Front one is stable.

Is this normal? Iíve only got a few hours of trail driving on it.

TIA!

(Sorry if this is in the wrong forum)

This question would be more appropriate in the TRX4 section, the regional sections are more for local groups.

Stock plastic driveshafts arent always perfectly centered and it shouldn't be an issue.

Though there is one other thing to check which isnt related to how centered it is, this is driveshaft phase. basically both ends need to be aligned or you will get some lurching as you drive slowly

I had this happen to me too. Check the drive pin on both sides and make sure itís not lose. I had this same issue and I was actually missing a pin lol. Picture to show where Iím talking about.
