I've seen these at my LHS (purple motor screws), but everything else you've shown is MIA.

Thumbs up

That Drive Shaft looks really good. Not sure the rest of that stuff would give any performance enhancement.

Would using the graphite back plate for the Evo3 on the Pro4 one-way help with gear problems?

A lighter driveshaft and input shafts would at best induce more torque steer, or introduce it in a car/on a track that previously had none. Comparing the weight of the motor armature and all the other longitudinally spinning parts, you should want to go slightly heavier on the drive shaft if anything. Why else would TC3 team drivers be using aluminum drive shafts, other than the carbon shafts breaking?

Personally I'd recommend sticking to the options that Hara/Thad use...which is to say, none

That said, I did put the RC Screwz stainless steel screw kit on my car, mainly just for a little bit of bling. I figure that should be it for me as far as options go, other than a motor heatsink.

Probably not - do the hot water soaking bit and you *should* be okay, although a hard hit on the front end when using a front one-way could still bust the gears. Try a front diff first if you can.

I agree Frank....! I used to run the Yoke SD but put so much bling on it that the setup went to hell as I had all these different parts on.

The only thing I have done to my Pro4 is use titanium screws and I am going to keep it that way. I run stock so for me cells and motors are a better place to spend ones cash ...!
