Default drive cable

The last two times out a broke the drive cable in my enforcer boat. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The enforcer boat i have is an older one that has the shaft brazed to the cable. It was one i bought from wharehouse hobbies.

Default RE: drive cable

Where is the cable breaking?? at the coupler, in the stuufing tube, or at the solder joint??
Are you running a Balanced and Sharpened Prop??
Is the cable perfectly lined up with the stuffing tube?
Are you removing and Greasing the Flex cabel after every few runs??
Are you leaving a 1\4"in Gap between the Drive Dog and The Strut??
