Here is the part number and the price.

#67699 DCJ Drive Shaft Set (1pc)
Retail Price: $38.00

*This item is pre-assembled set with dog bone, center coupling, axle and pins.

Thanks,
Anyone know if these are still being released? I remember a post saying late May to early June. Please don't let them end up like the D2 Buggy.

Try running no rebound on the shocks for more traction and are you running 2 hole pistons?

You should fly out for the reedy this weekend so that by the time the actually reedy race starts your will be darker than me.

Dude... I'm so pale and pasty white from living in Washington I'd probably just turn a "normal" color rather than tan!

Korey, looks like our track is switching over to Jaco blues (we're running Sorex 28 now) for 13.5 TC. Talk is that we're going to lose .2 sec. from the Sorex. What has been your experience ?
Any suggestions on setup changes ?
Carpet.
Thanks.

On asphalt... The team has been working really hard to figure out the Jaco blues. Generally slowing weight transfer a bit... and creating more sidebite seems to be the ultimate goal when using jaco rubber tires.

The team has been trying a lot of things, and the best change I've done is run a little more camber than you would typically run with a Sorex, and soften up the suspension a little bit. I actually kept the same springs I have been running and just layed down the shocks a bit. It seems to just slow weight transfer a bit and with the added camber the car won't just ride on the outer sidewall. You'll probably have to maker a few more adjustments, but those are the 2 main ideas that have helped out.

We have also been playing with the Hara springs as well, as they tend to smooth out the car a ton and make it transfer weight slower. I think most of us have gone back to the linear pro 4 springs though.

If you are running on carpet... I actually thought the Jaco blues were pretty dialed. When the grip comes up they don't make your car feel so tippy.

On carpet the Blues are great...On our high bite carpet track I run 60wt up front with golds and 45 in the rear with silvers (1.1 pistons). The car works very well...I have been experimenting with running my shocks more upright to force some of the weight to the tires and it seems to have a nice affect. Camber is about 2 all the way around, but there are others running more with the Blues.

Yea, on capret they seem pretty solid. My good buddy Weylin was commenting how they lasted for a long time as well. I'll still admit... I'm still a sorex fan.
