I prefer universal wheel axle 'cause I will use it with my univ. shaft drive.
No idea. I doubt it though as that dimension is pretty standard across most cars to a large extent. I certainly dont know of anyone thats tried it.

Drifter, you can make TRF or Super Mini shocks to whatever length you want by adjusting with spacers. So dont stress too much about it.

No uni's that I know of. but you can use the TG10 rear axle like they used on the MO4L (BMW and Honda)

Tony and Tamiyarcracer, thanks for the info...

This TG10 axle is just a spare part...not the hop up, right ?
So I have to go back with dog bone again .....

Yes to spare part and dog bone.
But on the rear it doesn't drive, so no dogbone needed.

Yes, I know it, but I'd like to use it on my TL-01 together with 4+ offset wheels to make it wider ....

From the pic, I see it's almost the same as ABC, only it's a belt-driven car.
Any noticeable different beside it, Tony ?

Please try it on the circuit and tell us about the handling.

The cars are identical essentially. All the suspension and such is the same. Different chassis plate but only in regard to the cutouts. The transmission housings are different and the diffs are slightly different (obviously)
I'd suggest 85/90% of the parts are the same. No real need to try it even, it'll handle exactly the same as the ABC I would think!

For TCS racing with the Mini do they tech the bearings? I need to upgrade the bushings in my Mini and wanted to know if there are advantages to using particular bearings over another?

Bearings of any kind are legal for TCS racing. I've always just used regular steel shielded bearings cleaned out and lightly oiled. They are cheap and work great.

Cool, that's what I was wondering. I meant to ask you yesterday but got sidetracked (by hitting the wall) and breaking an axle in the Main.
