Funny you're having this debate right now as it's just what I came in here to ask about.

I have the WCE which came with 44mm aluminum shafts up front. I bent one so I tried the Spec.R shafts, but they came with reliability issues for me.

So, I want to go with the good ol' steel front shafts. Am I correct in interpreting the above comments as suggesting that I go with the 46mm ones? Can I get just the shafts themselves and use all of the other pieces (axles, joint hardware, etc.) from my originals? Part number 51092?

TIA

Yes, you may just get the 46mm drive shaft instead of a complete set.

hi pros,

I like to know is it better for me to get TRF416X or TA-05 version II chassis kit (that comes with some hop-ups). I'm just a regular racer.

I have a TT01 that converted for drift... so, not really want to convert it back for touring...

any kind advice.

If your not willing to rebuild your TT01, then a 416 probably isn't for you. These cars are extremely sensitve to small changes, so it's important to take them appart and maintain them...

well, thanks for the advice.. what i really mean is i like to keep tt01 as my drift machine.. but not converted it back as touring (since there isn't much thing I can change), unlike TRF416X and TA-05.

I like to get a new chassis though

maybe i should think of TA-05 instead

Are you talking about the rear alloy diff joints? If so, 51342 is the number in my instruction manual.
