What are my options?
make bigger flats
make bigger flats with a small hole for set screws
or
drill hole all the way through and use a long set screw?(think this will break the output?)
I would say use 2set screws. Loctite them. If that does not work then drill. Let me know..

turn around times are fairly quick, once recieved it is generally checked and dialed in that day, usually 2 day before sent back out if not sooner.

I ended up drilling little dimples into the outputs(on both sides) and using set screws on each side. No loctite yet, I hate that $hit. Works great so far. Thanks.

Default dig

:-( I finally located and bought a dna dig, got it today, newer black unit, sharp looking, but; all problems posted here where present, holes not drilled deep enought, also not threaded, inside case radius not large enought, no instructions, need photos, after about 5 hrs work, drilling, tapping, enlarging radius , its on. feels smooth turning by hand. Sure glad i am used to fabing own parts, someone without right tools and knowhow would be in trouble. Hope you get bugs worked out, or tooling setup. slopoke.

Hey Don, I sent you a PM last week. I need to pay you for some stuff. Let me know if you didn't get the PM, and I'll send it again.

Yeah Don usually gets back to me pretty quick when I send him a PM, I think he must not have been around much last week.

Took me along time to get through trying email and PM, I think posting here is the fastest way to get his attention. Took me over 3 weeks to get the right beadlocks for some rims I ordered. I did get them though, and they are nice.

He's been traveling alot between San Antonio and the different comps. Also Solomon has been spending alot of time in the machine shop, it is quicker to post here or if need be e-mail solomon if you dont get Don quick enough, I generally check the post also and have direct contact with both, will have one of them address posts, thank and the guys are doing all they can right now they have several HUNDREDED orders they are trying to put together and get out, as well as designing new products to keep you guys on top.

Ok,
To the people that are waiting on parts to be sent, I am waiting on drive dog's to be drill and tapped, Once this is done the rebuild kits will go out. PM's and e-mails will be replied to during business hours. Mon-Thurs 7am-5:30pm central time. The phone is not always the best way to get us, because we are in and out fron the shop. Please be patient with us as we work through this. Also we have put in a QA inspection form with the new digs that are going out. If you have a problem with the dig I need the inspection form that came with it. Thanks again for all the orders and support. We are working to get things faster and to eliminate any problems there might be.

I too am having the same issue, are you possibly looking at making some replacement outputs out of steel? If so, I would be the first to buy them, as my brushless goat seems to be pretty hard on the existing outputs.
