Yes, and seems like these are more durable too.

I don't get it..

Why are the long cup's being made.. wasn't the idea of running 46mm as the longer drive shafts are better (not stronger) at putting the power down

Don't know if they are better at putting the power down.. but that was the marketing hype when the TCX was released.

Are we not going to be getting 46mm DCJ shafts or 46mm HD Steel ones

Under what conditions would you use a 6 hole piston ? I'm guessing it would need thicker oil (?).
Thanks.

Just gives you the option is all. 44mm driveshafts drive differently for sure. In the past on other cars I've driven, shorter driveshafts give more initial grip. The car feels more reactive overall, but doesn't roll quite as much. Longer ones make the car really really nice and smooth, and rolls a tiny bit more.

As for the 46mm DCJs and 46mm steel driveshafts, I'm pretty sure they are still coming out. They were listed along with the pistons before when Hiro posted a while ago. If you can't wait for the HB steel 46mm driveshafts, Exotek makes a great alternative that is available right now.

As far as an actual release in the US, the parts should be available very soon. I wasn't given an exact date, but I would assume in the next coming weeks.

i had enough with the kit chassis. it is terrible. me and other guy at local track tried many different setups, shock oils, springs, gear diff oil.....etc and nothing works, until someone shows up with terrible setup and exotek chassis beats our tcx.

btw how long do we have to wait for the option parts or is it just a joke?

I think the new solid axle cap, are also useful with 46mm axles, in case of suspension arms enlargement .
