It seems nothing is built to last anymore they just want to sell you more. Maybe one day I'll run one.
Well hopefully the new set up you pick last and dosent decide to kill any more shafts or itself!

Shafts I don’t think will be a problem now, the weak link is unfortunately the diff.

But we shall see !

I’m still after large diff flanges with the sharp spline design not the flat type !

Broke again, I don’t mind as there cheap. Problem is now shafts are so strong that the bit that will fail.

I have a lot of them so it’s no problem, I’d rather that break than any other bits !

Suppose better the cheap slightly harder to get to part than the expensive ones!
