    You are right, many people have jumped into different driveshaft seal setups in their RXT and have had problems just as I suspected. The driveshaft is different on the RXT from the RXP so there is no good spot for the seal and bearing to ride on as I have been saying for a while now.

    However!! If you can wait a little (maybe about a week) I am going to be getting a RAD4 seal specifically designed for the RXT and I will be providing a complete write up/install instructions with pictures for everyone as soon as I get it.

    Please stay tuned.

    It should be shipped Monday comming from New Zealand. So how ever long it takes to get here from there. I will be doing complete install instructions. You guys will not be disapointed in this setup. Sounds much better for our RXT's.

    Thats for the RXP's and the drive shafts are not the same. Those are the ones like the Skat seal that people have cut the boot on and used on their RXT but then had problems because the seals and bearings didn't have a true flat riding surface. With the new setup I am talking about the seals and bearing will have a complete flat surface to ride on. The only way the above seal (for RXP) mentioned would work on an RXT is to machine the driveshaft down, sleeve it, machine it down to proper diameter, however when I inquired about this I found it will typically cost at least $300 to do plus the cost of the seal so you were looking at $500+ to do it right.
