Well the layshaft won't fit in your MRE for once. And I'd stick with the tamiya units as far as driveshafts go. Cheap and reliable, and light enough.

Believe me, it's the wheel axles. I had that happen at the Cotswolds national last year, exactly the same thing your describing.
Just take the axles out, and replace them with steel of Ti ones. IMO, this is the biggest weak point on the MRE... they just aren't strong enough.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Stock's a "driver's" class.

Hara speedo because of the amount of adjustability and it looks cool . I've got the OLD Ko VFS 2000 speedo and it works great. Here is DragonPaints website.

I think both are. I'd ask about the Hara speedo in the KO thread to just be sure.
