just another question,

am running a T2 with the 38 pully conv and my friend is running the T3.

if we wanna get the ECS shafts, what do you guys recommend?? the 50mm or the 52mm?? i know the 50mm gives more steering, to be honest, am running Paul Lemieux's set-up adjusted to my liking and it has tons of steering, we also have the aluminum front solid adapters.

what do you guys think??

I like the car to be narrow for the most part; so, I vote for 50mm shafts. The 52mm shafts can bind in the outdrive during their up/down movement when you have a narrow setup.

Definitely get the ECS shafts.

I read your post and decided to check my new car for what you described. My car does this really bad!
Is this normal guys??. If i give the car throttle while on the stand its fine. When i turn the wheels while giving it throttle it goes nuts! The front end shakes horribly and makes the whole car shake. It starts at about 50% trow and gets worse as you go. It sounds like its rubbing or hitting something. Its so bad that the belts start shaking and going nuts and all. Anyone??

oh, on second thought. i might use the al shocks next season with a gear diff. Al shocks because if I remember they have the option to run 2 o rings Which should keep the shock more consistent with fewer rebuilds on race weekends. If I can get that working, I may meet my goal of 0 MANDATORY rebuilds on two day races. (makes it easier to run multiple classes like wgt and Rubber tc)

If you run the 50mm shafts up front, it is a good idea to run the alloy spool outdrives. The shorter shafts ride the edge of the composite outdrives and make them snap much easier.

I never ventured from the 52's because my car was always really good. I did use the 50mm steel shafts in the rear tho. (I had a cracked out setup, but that mother was fast as hell) It was fast enough for me to hope we don't get a new car this fall because I had that one figured out lol.

OH SNAP, its Nexus Racing!

go 50mm rear with gear diff

52mm front ecs


the 50mm front even with the alum spool cups wear fast even in the narrow front setup
I'm running the 50mm front and another racer is running 52mm front and his car has more steering and better rotation.......and better wear lol
