I also run the Tobee Craft stuff (front input shaft, spur adapter, center shaft, hardened stub axles). Yes, the aluminum stuff is much lighter, especially the input shafts and center shaft (the kit Yok ones are too heavy). However, I do NOT recommend the aluminum rear input shaft. I was running it in 19T and I think it tweaked from an impact or something. Instead, use the Square rear titanium one.

I'm not sure if that is what the CGM stands for or not, but from the picture on the Yokomo Japan website, the material doesn't look like graphite. I like the design of the car though . If it comes out in graphite later or right away it should be a big improvement over the old design.

I ran them in the past, and they are definately lighter than the stock pieces. They should hold up fine in 19t.

yes,tobee's stuff are awesome. but speaking of main drive shaft,,,,, there is ecxellent stuff which made by brand name is called BOMBER in Japan. I'm trying to get this stuff too,but it is kinda hard to find even in Japan. anyways,,,
it's made of carbon just like Yok's graphite one.but you don't have to worry about it !! it won't get tweak though, it works great and is very lighter than stock shaft, according to Miso Kato/Adachi Shinnosuke on the Japanese RC magazine.
The BOMBER makes awesome Inner foams for the tires as well. those inner foams are used by most popular raceres, such as Masami, Adachi, Kato.

if I got the main shaft and try it, I'll post how it works.
for this time, I just let you guys know!!

That looks very cool. Are those white ballends the RPM ones or are they the ones you got off your Losi?
