Tamiya makes some also but they would be to long. What about single joint shafts?

Is there a difference? I have used RSD TC6 DCJs both front and rear.

There isn't a difference other than length for front and rear

I bought a used T4 that has double joint shafts front and back, and I built a NEW T4 with them just in front. I don't plan on puting them on the rear its not needed...

I found ECS in the rear create a dramatically different feel in the car. One I wasn't particularly fond of in my testing, but it's worth trying to form your own opinion.

How felt your car after the change? more precice or kind of fuzzy? At least you get more play from the 2nd conection.
I thought they make only sense in the front with a lot of angle change from the steering. But in the rear that is not the case.

With a BD7 on high grip carpet it was a small difference
Tiny bit more rotation, also carries more speed on high speed sweeping corners

For all I've read about this item, I'm a bit surprised what little difference there is

Did not change any car settings to make rear dcj work
