Default PRO-D shaft

I discovered that you can use the drive shafts HPI PRO-D(HPI 88914) in the front, they are steel and therefore much more resistant.

I was under the impression those were 44mm driveshafts? I could be wrong. I switched to the Pro 4 CVDs with great success so far.

PRO-D shafts is 46mm , I also use the PRO4 driveshafts, but PRO-D shafts is a great alternative.

The car is durable but that really depends on the driver. My cousin went through countless swing shaft on a monthly basis whilst I haven't yet, well I only got myself a TCX lately but it shows. Because we both had TT-01 in the past and the same thing happened.

Are the steering knuckles side-specific? If so, maybe you've got them on the wrong side?

hope that helps

AAhhhhh I see. That clears it up a bit, thanks man.
