The front drive cups and the universals have a unique design that make adapting any other type of DCJs tricky. I can scan the page from the instruction manual if you like.

Because of the ball-design other universal axles won't fit the outdrives (like spec-r's). I think replacing the outdrives with Tamiya's and fitting spec-r axles would work actually, but I prefer the Kyosho ones.. maximum smoothness!

As far as I know the TF6sp is still in production by Kyosho.

A few other drivers over here have been experimenting with the weight transfer mod's like I mentioned before and are really pleased with the car on carpet now, huge improvement!

Happy new year to you all!
