Hey guys, quick question.

Any of you use the front steel drive shafts on the rear instead of the rear Alum ones?
could you run the front ones on the rear without any issues?

thanks

Yes no problem, the T2008 was originally fitted with 4 steel drive shafts before the Alu ones came by as an option and standard on the T2009/T3

What's the best servo to use in a T3 for racing? I have just purchased one second hand and the manual says to use a "narrow light servo" whats a good high speed one.

Any low profile (or narrow profile) is fine:
- KO PDS 2413 ICS
- Futaba s9550 or S9551 (s9551 got a bit more torque)
- Sanwa SDX 801.
- Team Orion Vortex Servo VDS 1007.

Initially, I used a Futaba 9551 low profile servo because it served me well with my Corally cars. Great value and durable!

But, considering the left front is the lightest corner of the T3, I switched to a heavier full-sized servo. The fast JR9000 is what I use now. Easy to balance car at all four corners.

Ditto, except I'm using the Airtronics 94359. I like that extra weight up front.

That's what I'm running atm Cristian. Have a look / run of my car in SA if you want to see what it's like. It's no different really. But I should have the litemodz shafts by then.

Yeh cool, though it was no issue just though I'll ask before putting them on as HEI is currently out of the rear Alum shafts.
Weird thing after 1 run of slapping on new rear Alum shafts the pin where the plastic caps go on came coming loose, as after the run I noticed the pin was nearly all the way out, surprised it lasted like that for a whole run.
