The driveline gets a 3mm shim at the pinion and I would assume that the mounting pocket for the chassis brace would be offset 3mm to the rear.

I have been told by a few other team drivers the normal rear center drive shaft is fine. Fits good and doesn't need to be longer. The rear chassis brace mounting hole is fine or else they would have added a new rear chassis brace to the update kit..

I had this same though when I saw these released. I know a local team driver who already has these parts. And just a week NEO supposedly mayfield had gotten new ones to try. Must be the ones he got didn't pan out, or at least didn't perform as well as these originals???

No change is needed to the driveshaft or the chassis brace. The slot in the center diff outdrive is long enough to absorb the difference in length. The new chassis has the brace mount in the same place relative to the rear gearbox, so the same brace can be used.

They are only notched so when at fool droop the plastic shock retainer doesn't get pushed up and have a chance to come off the shock end

I figured that but i dont know if this is going to be a running change or a new part number for the arms.
