Default diff shaft

Which upgrade is the best, LA201 steel diff shaft, or TFW001 aluminium diff shaft ? Which is more durable ? I would have guessed the steel one, but it is much cheaper than TFW001.

you would probably be better off with the steel ones, but saying that you could end up going through a lot more blades. im using the aluminum ones and wear the blades sit its worn down the outdrives.(will post a pic tonight to show you)

there are also some after market ones mad by 3racing i think for like $12.50US which are steel and dont use blades which also could be an option.

well what i was going to try out in experimentation was to buy the 3 racing steel outdrives like i mentioned for both front and rear. but only use the diff in the rear, and i have some old team losi spool pads which are like $2 which you use instead of the balls, which then you tighten the sh!t out of it. to create a spools or looked diff.
thus not using any blades at all. solving the problem we have at the moment. but this could then create a problem of going through more universal shafts as the pin would wear.

but from what i can see happening skip is that many of the team drivers aren't using the standard one anyways so its likely to be improved or changed. its just a matter of time to when they release it

i would also like to see them release the chassis that many of the team drivers are using as well as it allows the use of lipos. As the current square lipos don't fit, only the the team orion stick pack configuration ones go into the shin chassis, due to where the spur gear shaft sits.

anyways talk to you more about it at wodonga.

has anyone tried using standard TF005 arms on the Shin edition? i cant find TF133 arms anywhere and was thinking of using TF005. Does it make much difference on the Shin?
thanks

i dont see why they shouldn't work, as long as you have the same arms on both sides of the car.

as you find many setups online that aren't using the tf133 arms in their setups sheets so they must still work just as good

for low/medium traction asphalt, what is a good starting setup for a TF-5 Readyset? Its gonna be running stock 27 turn with a lipo. I know balancing it is important but what about camber/toe/caster/etc? I plan on tightening down the front diff all the way and getting the rear to good point but i want to reach a more controllable yet performing setup (something easy to drive that'll do well) as this car is going to a rookie driver.

also, any idea what to gear it with a 27turn bluecan? (co27)
