Default Carbon Fiber Drive shaft for Team Losi mini 8ight T

I recently had several requests for carbon fiber conversion for the stock center drive shafts on the losi mini 8ight and losi mini 8ight T. The conversion is similar to the one done for the TC3/TC4 and HPI pro 4 drive shafts. However, I have been requested to shorten the overall shaft length by 1.5mm to prevent crash damage that seems common on the stock part.

As of now, I can only perform retro fits on exisiting drive shafts. If you have a stock drive shaft to convert (either new or used, but straight), I can make on for $28 returned shipped back to you.

PM or email for additional details.

Erik

Posted a few pics showing the completed carbon fiber Tamiya EVO 6 drive shafts. They look very trick., although a little pricy as the donor shafts are expensive.

I have donor parts arriving for the Losi 8ight T drive shaft. Once completed in 3-4days, they will sell for $38 shipped. PM or email if interested.

I was only able to locate two stock donor shafts, so once they are gone, there will not be any more for a while.

I would like to purchase carbon fiber drive shaft for a 1:10 redcat drift/touring car. If possible, I would like to find carbon fiber axles as well. I'm ready to order if someone makes/has them. Thanks.

THanks for the inquiry. I can convert the stock drive shaft (assuming it is aluminum or steel, 4mm or greate OD) with a carbon fiber center. I just need a donor part (new or used, but straight) sent to me to begin the conversion. Cost is $28 per drive shaft return shipped to you. PM or email me for details on shipping address (for the donor part) and payment info.

As for the axles, i would advise against that. The carbon fiber is very ridgid and light, but will not take impacts well. The axles/universial shafts take more of a pounding and will probably break the first time the car goes over a bump or hits something. Center shafts are more protected and have proven their durability on countless vehicles.

Hope that helps,
Erik.

$38 shipped anywhere in the USA if interested.

PM or email for details.

I will attend the TCS race this weekend, march 13-15th. If anyone is interested in one of the drive shafts, please let me know before hand and I can bring them with. Maybe do a package deal for cash, no shipping.

I'm interested into a TC3 shaft, what are the characteristics compared to the original carbon one?

I've "satellized" mine yesterday, it is now wobbling at high speed... Did you perform some resistance tests with yours? Any idea about the max rpm they can endure?

Thanks.
