Does anyone have a Kyosho Ultima? I was wondering if any of the offroad diffs might work? I'll have to dig in the shed for mine. Haha.. this is funny... everyone digging around for anything that might work!!

They never actually made one for the EVO 3 either, you had to buy lots of bits to make it. So it's nothing new. Other then there doesn't seem to be a perfect fit yet.

It'll fit but it won'twork as the rear pully is off-set to one side and the front pulley is in the centre, hence the problem....

Okay guys, how about this. Does anyone have any F201 or 415 "short" outdrives? I think the F201 might work better. But get 2 short ones to make a diff... then try and use Yokomo axles/bones. You will probably need the yokomo rebuild kit for the pins, etc. I dunno if this will work well. But the Yokomo bones are longer than the 415 ones. I think the main key will be finding longer bones. I would say use the Yokomo rear bone and axle. But then you'd need to also find different bearings.. 11x6 I think. You might even beable to get one short F201 outdrive and one short 415 outdrive and peice it together. I just wish I had all the parts to try it out.

Has to be supported by the bearings. I dunno what size bearings the Losi rides on. Oh, and another question.. does anyone have a F201 with universals? How long are the F201 bones compared to the 415 bones? Could be another option to using the short outdrives.....

Oh haha, and one other thing... the "short" outdrive on the F201 has the "nipple" for the bearing to slide over. The "short" outdrive of the 415 is the "female" end. So the two would work together. All you would need to do is shimming them evenly (the F201 side would be easier. Then maybe with the F201 universals (the bones on 415 axles) it might work. Just depends on how long the F201 bones are. And that's the only thing I don't have..... Okay.. I'm done.. off to bed...

i think this is about what i came up with... you can actually use the old MR4TC belt car front set, but you have the same problem with the total set being short. i didnt have any 11X6 bearings, but i mocked up the front set of cvd's, and i am pretty sure itll go. ill try to get some bearings and post some pix. i actually ran it last week with the oneways, and liked it just fine- but next month we are hosting an Invitational, with lots of top drivers, Barry B. Chris Toso, Ralph Burch jr, etc. and the rules disallow oneways for this event. so i am getting the 414 ready, just in case i havent figured out this deal... its just frustrating that Tamiya has no plans for this. c'mon, Big T... hook a racer up!!!!

i just rethought it.. seems like the F201 bones are longer. i dont have the cvd's, just the factory bones, but that may just take care of it. ill measure the F201's tonight... unless someone here isnt at work, and could measure for us!!! for the MR4TC outdrives, they need to be prolly 4mm longer to get a good bite in them...

The shaft lenght on a F201 CVD is 48mm, 6mm longer than the 414/415 at 42mm so hope this helps
