Ah. I know from reading about universals/cvds that it makes a huge difference. I hope Schumie or a 3rd party makes some double cardan joints like xray/losi/hb.

For the same price (almost) get tir cvd's and there spool. About the price of xray ecs shafts

ive heard the xray cvd's fit. Just have to file the outdrives to fit there blade as it's a little bigger. Or even hb's dcj's and run no blades. The length of all them is right. Don't know about what wheel hex's to use though.

Maybe something to look into if someone has the parts?

The xray pin that goes into the outdrive is just a little bigger. So I'm not sure if they will work in tir spool. Never had any tir stuff. Or seen any.

4th race weekend with the car. 3rd TQ and 4th win. The weather really cooled down for Socal area and temps hardly got to the low 70's, made the track very greasey feeling. Next race day will try for 5 in a row.

Not quite - the "ball" of the driveshaft is bigger (than it needs to be for TR spool) on the Xray driveshaft. I looked at it, but to be honest, I don't fancy a mortgage to get the driveshafts just to get understeer!

Hi Matt

Have you had any problems with the ends of the Delrin cups on the TIR spool breaking off?

Depends on what you class as a problem I guess. I'm not going to lie, I have broken them, and always carry spares of them. However, Since the design has been fully sorted (nearly 2 years I guess), I can honestly say that I haven't broken any "for no reason".

i.e it has taken a decent impact to break one. I broke one on Saturday testing on carpet - had just accelerated out of a virtual hairpin onto the main straight, at which point i hit a stationary car that was stuck in the barrier. So I was flat on the throttle, and yeah it broke the flange off - but I don't have a problem with that kind of issue.

Wear rate is very good. I think the ones in my car now (apart from the one I just broke!!) had been in there since before the Euros - so mid summer, and I only run mod!

From everyone I have talked to they love there TIR stuff. I can be pretty good with hitting walls But they sound pretty tough

I was thinking about getting the spool and CVD's for the front. For now any anyhow lol. Is there any advantage to using them in the rear? Other then having matching CVD's
