Default SCX10 Dingo driveshaft length?

Hey Guys,

I'm building an SCX10 dingo, and I managed to take all the driveshafts off the parts tree before realizing there are enough parts here to make different length driveshafts. I'm assuming it's so you can change the wheelbase if you had different length links? Would there be a reason to use a different length driveshaft with the links that it comes with?

Not unless you stretch the wheelbase from 290 - 317mm as per the Honcho body.....

or go for a custom build.

Can you stretch the wheel base without changing the links?

Another member did the same thing not long ago, he has a picture in his thread showing you exactly which ones to use. Do a search in the 1.9 section and you should find it within the last ~3 weeks.

You will need to change the length of something to change the wheelbase.
It will either be the links, the mounting positions or the skid plate.

You can stretch it slightly just by adding washers between the link and ball end if needed.

also 25.4mm = 1 inch so a simple measure and math will let you know what will fit
