Izzy, I might have what you are looking for, but the only question is, how quickly do you need it.

PM me with you e-mail address, and lets talk

I just put it together and shimmed so there was no movement in the gears but not so they were tight. Rick

Mostly just looks. It's not even complete as it does not include the upper suspension link blocks nor the washers and ball ends of the stabilizer.

It does give you the blue shaft, which is 2mm longer than the original shaft and it fixes the front oneway/bevel gear stripping problem.

It also give you a slotted motor mount which is slightly lighter and provide additional cooling surface

However, if you are interested in performance upgrade alone, get the new light weight shaft. It's also 2mm longer thus fix the oneway issue and lessens your drivetrain rotating mass.

same length, but not size. The blue shaft has the same diameter as the original one.

I think in the front i ended up with 0.2mm worth of shims, one either side of the diff and in the rear 0.3mm worth of shims, 0.1 behind the gear and 0.2 infront of the gear. Every gearbox and diff is different though, give it a run on the track and it shud free off a lot thats the best way to free it up. Also i am using white lightneing or whatever its called on the gears this frees it up a bit more. Rick
