the ball drive shafts are standard front and rear , i have driven quite a lot outside on a dusty track and there is no wear , and they are really strong

There is no chatter on full lock either from the front driveshafts

Matthijs,
As I studied the pic of you car I noticed the cool pit-mat you've got (if that's what it is....) ;-)
Where could I get one of those?

hey Tom,

You mean the carbon look? that's a hudy setupboard with a carbonprint decal and some kyosho/orion stickers. I do have a pitmat from kyosho, available at kyosho germany, but also at your local kyosho dealer (I think).





info on the pitmat: http://www.kyosho.de/?page=shop/flyp...ct&setlang=deu

I can say the diffs are THE BEST I have seen and buildt (Spec-R, Yokomo, Serpent and Xray).

Once run in (after 1-2 battery packs) they are absolute butter! and do not leak at all! They have 4 o-rings to seal outdrives. Housing sits into the pulley and it has a 5x8 bearing that sits on the inside of the outdrive! And all gears are steel and teeth are very fine (no backlash either). No extra shimming required!

You will be very happy with them!!!

there here! building is really simple, a few minutes and the complete diff is ready. I replaced the bushings with some bearings and that's it! Now only if I had some time this week to try it...
