Hope it helps.
Thank you.
ok - i'm running a 2.0 FF block, not sure if I'd got down to a 1.0 or 0

because, honestly, mine doesn't bind - it was tight the first time I ran it, but then after a day of racing everything loosened up

I know the 3Racing blades are tight in the SpecR diffs, it was just tight sliding them into the outdrives - but after a full days of racing, everything seems all good
It will probably feel a tiny bit different. I haven't played with it much on this car, but on others cars... longer driveshafts generally make the car feel a little smoother and less aggressive. It's something you might try and experiment with to see what 'feel' you like best. In the end if it doesn't bind up, everything should be fine .

Those wider blocks typically give a little more initial steering into the corner, and rolls a little less in the front end. We have been grinding the standard blocks to allow room for the belt and the steering links.

DCJ will more than likely give more steering overall, and less chatter. They worked really good on the Cyclone TC in the past.

When using the yokomo 45.5mm steel driveshafts in the front, will I need to use the TCX axles or the Yokomo ones?

New upper deck too


And new front shock tower, and new front knuckles and new rear hubs!

I think he's not using the new DCJ because of the front SpecR diff, which need 44mm dogbones...

Hey guys ... would appreciate any assistance with this.

Do I use the complete Yokomo driveshaft, or just the dog bone.

Thanks

Why not? Think it is better to buy a new car full of option then spend much money on options.
