The hardened universals aren't going to lighten anything up they will be more durable. The tobee center shaft and CVD bones are also available and lighter than the stock peices.

Matt is correct.Just finished installing the lite input shafts center shaft annd rear cvds.There is a big difference in rotating mass with the new parts. Cant wait to see how it does in Stock at the Regionals.

I recommend you that you get Shooter's Alum. Inner Camber Link Mount !! this allow you that can adjust the upper rod position with using sims. Team Suzuki has similar stuff but a lot better than that I think. price a lot cheaper as well.
take a look the pic!!

Alternatively, you can try the following parts :

1) Square titanium front and rear input shafts
2) Square titanium front and rear snub axles
3) Square titanium dogbones
4) Tobee Craft lightened aluminium prop shaft

Tobee Craft aluminium dog bones should work ok in the rear, but I wouldn't recomend you use them in front, esp if you are using a one way... my stock steel bones were very badly twisted when I replaced them.

Cheers

Can anyone give me an address for those top plate mounts. They are like the Tamiya B 03 units.

Regards

I've been running those top deck mounts for a while now, and where they really help is in the front. You'll notice that, when running the front suspension shimmed all the way back, the camberlink is not straight across, but actually angled to mount on the shock tower. When you use the Shooter's mount, you can mount the camberlink on it, instead of the shock tower so it goes straight across.
Here's a pic:

Be very careful when using the Shooters Upper Deck Mount. If you get T-Boned.. check to make sure they aren't bent. Happened to mine in the rear. They are nice, but a tad too thin IMO.

Wow, I figured they would be stronger than the stock plastic, that's pretty wierd.

They will handle normal wear and tear. But a T-Bone will bend them easy. They aren't thick like Evo3 Deck mounts. If they were, I'd still have them on my car. The part that bends is the thin Camber link mounts. Also when using them in the rear.. it makes for getting to the top motor screw a pain sometimes. But that's just me. I'm sure plenty of people haven't had any trouble with them at all.
