Been looking for the availability of the TF6 platform in the U.S., but no luck so far. Hope it becomes available soon.

yup! you'll need 2 x TF242, the knuckles have a bit more material around the holes and a new angle on the steeringarm so you can have a greater steering angle, thats also a reason to use the DJ joints ;-)

Not so much about more steering lock. It gives a more linier feel to the steering and much smoother, believe me they feel very nice to drive with. Also I suggest if you are racing modified go for the steel DJ axles.

Default balls on the axles

hiya folks,

Is it a good idea to swap the balls on the axle to ceramic balls? for better wear? or lightweightness?

TBH i think there is no real need to put ceramic balls in. Becuase the balls dont wear. Personally i would just keep with the standard balls.
