That won't stop axel chatter... And even then I don't think the gear dif for the tc6 will fit anyways.

The TC6 is narrower so if your willing to shim it, then it will fit just gatta take your time and make sure it is centered.

You have two options:

1. Already available are the Litemodz CVS evo2. I use them for 6 months now without a problem. Zero chatter, true constant velocity (unfortunately some guys here had problems with getting their stuff, while I got my stuff sometimes faster sometimes I had to wait 4 weeks, but not a problem for me)!

or

2. You wait for some more weeks until ReflexRacing will come out with their double cardan axles and buy their stuff. Christian is working hard for his customers!

Where are the evo2 axels on lite OSS, I can't find them unless the tc6 fits.

They are. I had a bad CVA that came with my TC6 so I checked it with my TC5 spares and they were the same and just used it instead. The outdrives are almost the same as well. The only difference is acctualy that the short outdrive doesn't have the ring on it to stop the bearing. There is just about half an inch difference in where the bearing mounts on the short outdrive. The long outdrives are identical. I checked because I wanted to use the blue aluminum outdrives I had sitting around for the TC5

Because it's IMPOSSIBLE to simply go to the AE website and download the manual and cross reference!

Just pointing out that if it was that critical to you, you could have used a computer at the library, borrowed a friends' computer, or gone to the hobby store, logged onto any of the thousands of parts webpages..... Oh, don't forget you could have also posted in the TC5 thread, or the TC6 thread!

In any case, you're only going to get chatter at extreme steering angles. Tune your set up to avoid speed scrubbing extreme steering angles, and chatter becomes a non-issue.

Have a nice day!
