If the input shaft is twisted there are some serious problems. It needs to come out and get torn down to find out what's wrong.

Well its allready out, just haven't had time to take it apart. I just assumed it was to much power for the input shaft? I'll try to get it inspected in the next day or so. What should I be looking for?

Look for broken parts.

The bad part is that I've never even did a hole shot yet. Just rolled in to it a few times to pass.

I was just pokin. I suppose something could have failed in it to twist the shaft.
