Not sure what you mean, what are you looking at to tell that?

Well im pleased to say the car went really well and for me with the kit setting is a far better starting point than it was on the T4 '13.
The rear of the car is a lot more stable for my driving style on the T4 '14.

The only thing I changed was to run 2.6 springs all round which made it slightly better. Next I want to try 450 in all the shocks which
ill try next week.

Default cso double jointed driveshafts!!

Hi, I noticed that cso do some double jointed driveshafts for the t3/t4 although they are 46mm, is this right as they seem far to short?

The measurement point is different. I think 46mm is about the same as an Xray 52mm. Although since they're made by CSO you can probably just chuck them straight in the bin and not have to worry about the length.

Roche do some nice looking ones at a decent price, but they've not been out long so not heard any reports about them yet.

And in general the Spec-R ones seem to be good, although they require a narrower bearing which is never good for bearing life on the front end.

Are the cso ones really that badly made? I think they use the thinner bearing as well although I race 17.5 blinky so don't go that fast!

If you can stomach the import duty, these would be better from Reflex Racing (bottom of the page);

'Wide Axle' versions are 52mm, 'Narrow Axle' are 51mm and use narrower bearings.

I will buy the xray ones when I get the new car, its just some to pass the time as my old xray ones are two years old and have a lot of slop.

How are you finding the new car, a lot of people seem to be struggling to find a setup that works?

I've been running the Spec-R versions since last spring in Mod TC outdoor and 17.5 over the winter indoor. Although they are getting a bit sloppy they have held up wonderfully with many good crashes under their belt. These are about 51mm and do use the narrower inner bearings. I also do find that I need to replace those occasionally but it's not been a big worry.

I did have a set of the xray shafts. Those made it one indoor season and about four laps outdoor before one gave up at the joint. It's a limited test but for my money I'll be using the Spec-R shafts for a long time.

I've never used any of the others so I can't compare.

I have a new set of spec-R 51mm joints if some one wants them I ran one pack with them in usgt in a 2012 but was barely in gauging the spool (had car +4mm track on each side for a 200mm body) so removed them and went back to stock)
$35 shipped

Hagberg did not have any screws in the top deck by the lay shift. Maybe the 1 mm spacing of the top deck allowed for better flex around the top deck.
