I broke the front purple drive shaft and borrowed a buddies Yokomo steel front shafts and it was a tad shorter but worked great, thought I found a set steel drive shafts, don't look like those Yokomo steel shafts so I see here there's a Pro D shafts, who makes these shaft, any part numbers?, the ones I got look like the the stock purple not like the Yokomo steel ones, interested in this Pro D stuff and where to get them

It's drift parts made by HPI for the Pro 4. Very popular in Japan, not so easy to come across in the UK.

In stock at Demon Products amongst others in the UK. It is a part for the drift car which is now available in the UK the TC-FD.

Only problem with them is the pin is larger than the pin on standard TCX or the TCX steel drive shaft. After buying a set I ended up buying the TCX steel ones!

They mount straight on, it uses the wider holes and narrower holes on the chassis FR and RF mounts.

The fundamental design is the same, but there are a lot of new parts on the car
