Which 'chassis' are you using? That's a 'Long' universal shaft from the picture.

In July this year I used my first '2 shoe trans'......giving up my 40/46 tooth option and getting away from the 'sling-finger' GT1 trans clutch. That 'front dogbone' that comes with the '2 shoe' trans is 91mm......the clutch bell has a 'spacer' to handle a '5mm or so' length difference in the new trans length.

GT1 (short chassis) w/early trans requires 84mm front 'dogbone'.......new '2 shoe' requires that you shorten to a 78mm front dogbone. That front 'uni' drive doesn't have anything to do with 'gear munching' unless you do not set front diff. gear mesh properly and then your 'front end' .......disembowels itself. Give me a clue as to 1. your chassis, 2. your trans..........I ran the 'early' slingfinger for 5 years..........went to the '2 shoe' only because my motor can now provide the speed I got out of 'the 40/46 trans' alone.

It's a weeeee bit of a '3 hand operation' to get 'pinion gear mesh' at times but that's where I've seen most of the problems. If you are running where you pick up rocks in the gears, you can't prevent gear damage. Setting mesh a 'bit tight' always worked best for me. (15/19 pinion on 43/46.......15/20-21 pinion on 40/46)

(feel free to PM me for clarification)

Just checked Amazon. Under search for the JQ products 110mm dogbone.......they have 4 different colors and a note to order quick, only '1 of each left'.........

Is anyone using the rxshox two stage pistons in the plastic shock body and do you think it is worth changing to?

With the gearing you use youŽll reach 90 km/h, or 50 mph.

The ratio between this speed and the one you are looking for will tell you how many teeth to go up from 20.

Have anyone used Team C's body on Kyosho GT2? Recently I bought a Team C's GTR R35 body but realize the width is too wide. Kyosho's width is 310mm while the Team C's R35 body is 310mm for the front and 320mm for the rear. Looks weird on Kyosho's chassis. Have any of you tried other Team C's body on Kyosho GT2 and find the fitting right?

Default Protoform PF8 body

Doesn't fit too good. Line up the front wheels in the wheel openings
and the rear wheels are almost out the back. Isn't there a spec on
GT cars ? What bodies fit well ?

Default Axle slop ?

How do tighten up the axles ? I see Kyosho makes 8x10 shims
There is quite a bit of slop in those axles, especially the fronts.
Will shims take care of that or are new cvd's the way to go ?
Thanks
