    It's called powerhouse trail, nothing but LARGE rocks, and I mean rocks. Tim, Ken myself and a few others ran it yesterday, Ken and myself only made it 1/2 way before we had driveshaft issues, but the rest made the 1/2 mile trail in only 10 hours.

    Slip yoke, huh? Why not go fixed yoke why you're at it! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Driveshaft issues........thats one thing to call it I guess. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    How did you get the UAV home w/ the slip yoke dumping out fluid. Cap it and limp home on the front, tow or trailer?

    Dude, I dont see what you guys are talking about. The shaft looks fine. LOL That is always one thing that freaks me out. Driveshaft failures, at least you can keep it on the wall of shame for a while. You said you made it 1/2 way.....how the hell did you make it out?
