Hey, if you want to waste some money give it to me......
I have lots of old oval cars to chose from so you can get your butt kicked by a nitro car. You could make any of them into a drag car.

John,
I could make one for your Evo4. If you give me the old shaft, I will convert it to carbon fiber for $25.

I plan to be at Larry's this Friday if you want to make the switch. The heavyweight, aluminum shaft would be the one to start with.

I can do the same for anyone else that has one of the older alum shafts for the TC3, TC4, Pro-4, EVO 4, etc. Just PM or email for for details on where to send the donor shafts.

FYI - I should have a report from StephenSobottka soon who has been testing the carbon shafts in a TC3 with a 8x1 on foam tires.

Default clear pictures

I finally got a new camera capable of clear pictures.

The file is too large for all so I broke it up into two pics. They show the Yokomo SG, Tamiya EVO 4, Associated TC3, and HPI Pro 4 Shafts. The TC4 shaft (not pictured) looks very similar to the TC3 version, just with smaller tips.

The TC3 and HPI Pro 4 shafts are currently available and ready to ship. The other three versions I am making to order due to limit availability of materials. The shafts weigh 5.2-5.9g depending on the shaft tip diameters and length of the various vehicles. This is any were between a 5g to 9g savings in rotating mass, again depending on vehicle.

No plans for CVDs or axles at the moment. THe CF in the smaller diameters is not strong enough to handle to torque levels at the axles. Besides, the current crop of axles and aluminim CVD shafts are already pretty light.

Thumbs up

In case anyone is wondering, yes Erik does a very nice job with these shafts. There are already several stock racers at our local track using them in their Associated cars, and they all seem to be pretty happy with them. I just got the one he made for my Evo 4 on Fri. and raced it that night as well with no problems. It looks cool, spins true, and is soooo light, which is always a good thing.

Thanks Tim,
I will try to catch up with Keith one of these days.

I am also looking to make a few other parts using the cabron shafts. I have a prototype set of chassis braces for the Xray T1FK05 car that is ready for testing. They are 2 grams lighter than the stock set (4) and therotically will be much stiffer.

The Yok SG shafts are $32 +$3 shipping or I can retro fit an existing shaft for $25 + $3 shipping. I currently am out of stock on the SG shafts, but I could have the parts if a week. The retor-fit option is quicker and slightly cheaper if you choose that option. Email me (ewippler@visteon.com) or PM for more details if interested . Thanks

FYI - My test driver is wrapping up the testing and should have a review shortly. Stay tuned...

Erik

Hey Guys,
I have been testing the shafts in a modified touring car and it has held up fine so far. It has been run in many applications, Mod FoamTC with an 8X1, stock foam tc, stock rubber tc. It has not broken and has shown very few signs of wear on the tips that go into the cups on the input shafts. It looks like these should be ready to go for just about any application.
Stephen
