Atomic shafts are the same length as the stock 44mm CVD's. If you're the type that prefers 46's, it's something to keep in mind.

I forgot about that, thanks. Running a spool with 44mm is ok though isn't it? I thought the problems with splitting the cups were if you were using the 42mm. I'm no pro driver by any means, so I tend to tap a board now and then.

I've been using xray ecs drive shafts and they transform the car to another level I do recommend them...
I'll try them on 416 soon

44's kill the spool inserts, and are what comes with the WE. I don't think 42's even work with the spool.

but i have never been that narrow

The 44s are the way to go... if you can keep it off the boards . The 46s can chatter and rob a little steering but they look after the cups better

Which HPI color do you use with 2s? I run on indoor asphalt.
Does Tamiya have only yellow,red and blue short or long? Or they have more?
