The Xray Diffs might also be possible, but I have yet to see one opened.

Retro Fitting also Available.
I can also retro fit the aluminum diff halves for the TA05, Tamiya 415 or Hot Bodies cars. $20 a pair for retrofitting.

Also, I hope to have the lightweight spur gears availble next week sometime.

Default JRXS Light Weight Diff Halves

I am working on some light weight JRXS diff halves for a friend. They are about half way complete and so far show great promises in weight reduction. They look to weight in close to half of the stock diff halves (4-5g looks possible). I will post a picture when they are finished.

Default Team Losi JRXS Light Weight Diff Tubes

Team Losi JRXS Light Weight Diff Tubes

I made the first batch of light weight diff Tubes for the JRXS for a friend and I ended up with two extras. They weight around half as much as the stock tubes (5g versus 9g) and should prove the ticket for stock and 19T racing. Still untra strong, true and now lighter than ever. $25 a piece plus shipping, around $3. PM or email if interested.

Default Carbon Fiber Drive shafts

I will be closing out the remaining carbon fiber drive shafts. $25 each shipped anywhere in the US. I currently have one piece each remaining for the TC3, TC4, HPI Pro 4 and Tamiya EVO 4. Once they are gone, I will still make custom parts or retro fits but will not carry them in stock. Get them while they last.

Thanks to all who supported this hobby of mine.

I can make one from the EVO V but the donor shafts must be custom ordered from HK. $42 shipped anywhere in the world. If you have a donor that you can send me, Looking at $28 shipped anywhere in the world. Let me know if you are interested.

Still have one remaining drive shaft in stock. For the Tamiya EVO IV. $15 + shipping. After it is gone, I can still make the drive shafts for other cars (TC3, TC4, HPI Pro 4) but all will be custom orders.

Thanks again to all those that purchased the drive shafts over the last few years. It has been fun making them.

Default Carbon Fiber Center Shaft for Team Associated Factory Team B44

It looks like Associated has a new shaft driven 4WD buggy. If the drive train layout is similar to the TC4 / BJ4, I should be able to make carbon fiber center shafts for the car. Once the kits are out, I will check to see what is possible. Ball park price is probably $35 shipped in the US. email or PM if interested.

Erik, it looks as though the B44 is only a slight departure from the BJ4WE. The center drive shafts on the BJ3WE are cvd drive shafts to allow the axis of the center gear to sit out of line from the pumpkins. If you are producing carbon fiber cvd's I'd like to get some feedback on the durability. Thanks.

No CVD made from carbon fiber - the tube I use is much to large to fit around some of the sway bars, shocks, etc found on most cars. Also, the CVDs are not nearly as protected from impacts as the center shafts.

I did make a CVD style carbon shaft for the Tamiya EVO V (CVD end on one side, dogbone style on the other. If the center shaft is similar and the chassis allows for a shaft aroun 6mm in diameter without rubbing, should not be a problem.
