Sorry, but also I have trouble with English language, However, I refer to front pivot (FF).

ok, i see, the part 75161 in the manual

if i really need to change this part to use the pom joint, may be a front gear diff with 500 000 oil is a better idea ?

Yes, the part is the 75161, the differential gear with 500 000 oil is really a good idea.

Default Rear driveshafts

Hi,

Has anyone found a better replacement for the 44mm aluminium driveshafts in the rear. I find they wear too quick and would like to use steel. Im using the yokomo driveshafts in the front and would like to use their 44mm ones but can not find any blades that will fit....

any ideas?

Is anyone out there running a TCX in USVTA class? If so, any setup advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

HB sells steel 44mm from the front on the cyclone tc, they are an exact fit

Yep, use CVS's in the rear, you won't get ANY wear then :0)

Supposedly the HB 44mm steel driveshafts for previous cars have all been discontinued and replaced with the aluminium ones.

They are on ebay..

http://cgi.ebay.com/Hot-Bodies-Front...item255e5edcdf

Should not break these in a hurry in the rear. I have never had any issues with the rear shafts.. unless the track is not very car friendly..

It's my new super narrow chassis, made by M.M.H Racing.
Wide only 8*mm, more flex and better balance, include cabron battery holder

Shame it won't take a lipo battery with humps on the bottom, as some can only be used with the humps down

Where did you pick that up from?

Looks like the chassis would be a touch stiffer due to smaller/fewer cutouts. But, it's narrower, so maybe that gives you a bit of flex back.

Interesting.
