if your running foam tires, the copper is the way to go. i use the pruple in the front. also if you have a sway bar in the rear take that off, that will freee up the car.

Hey Pat.... nice to see you're joining the dark side....

I paid around 300ish for mine. But mine came with enough spares for a second car plus a little...
Spares to buy.... CVD's and bones..

The pro4 cvd will bend if you're running on a track. Either get some IRS tc4 plastic's on the cheap or upgrade to Ti world ed. ones. You're having the steel UJ's will be fine.

bevel gears (for the diff)
Again, these suffer in crashes... or improper shimming. A MUST buy..

suspension pins...

Front sus. arms

and if you end up getting the brushless... then eventually you'll need diff outdrives.

But... summary.
BEVEL GEARS,
CVD BONES
FRONT SSUPENSION ARMS

let me know when you get the car..






I can sweeten the deal for you by taking the alu centre drive cups and CF shaft off ya...I have another shaft on order but you know me....

Thanks angry lol the dark side. shaft seems better for me because its going to be used in the carpark across the road alot and i kept getting stones cought in the diffs and stuff of the 415. im getting it for 320 deliverd to my door wasnt sure if that was over priced or not didnt seem 2 bad. Im not sure about brushless atm im running pretty low on cash atm and not working as much as i need to be lol.

Yep.. same reason i got the pro4.. shaftie AND enclosed drivetrain..

Let me know about the centre shaft and drive cups. If they're in good nick, i'll seriosuly sweeten that deal for you. Been looking for those items for a while. You can have my old shaft and drive cups, and the new shaft when it arrives...

how soon are you getting the pro4?

the centre shaft is coupled like a CVD via some drive cups.

So.. going from tranny out.
Diff outdrives(Drive cup)
CVD dog bone
CVD axle
Wheel hex
Wheel..

same deal on the centre shaft.
From front of the car to back...
Front Diff - Drive cup - Shaft - Drivecup - Rear Diff

Like i said, i can do a swap ... yours for mine(providing they're in good nick) and i'll chuck some bling in ther too. My alu centre shaft is on backorder in HK.

The current ones i had have a little slop and the centre shaft is ugly. Battle scarred but fine. I've been wanted to get the alu centre drive cups(more accurate) and another shaft for a while...

Lol... not really.

Not going to be able to get them locally. Easy to order from OS, but i like buying local. Might buzz MRC and see what they can do for me if you're not interested.

Oh.. you going to TFTR on sunday or monday?
I'll be there on monday unless it's bad weather, and most likely on sunday too.
