This might be an ignorant question but I want to send it out there for advice:

Is everyone running the steel DCJ's or are there lightweight options for the DCJ's? Is it as simple as running lightweight swing shafts and Exotek axles and combine them with the DCJ parts?

I'm able to find what I need for the rear axles but unclear for the front (and I do not want to go back to single joints in the front)

Just needing a sanity check and advice....

Thanks

With front DCJ's you always want to use Steel for durability, not even sure if there are any other options

Aluminum dog bones are good for rear axles

Thanks for the quick reply RedBull. I'm pretty much ready to wrap up all my light-weight transformation (until that new light weight spool comes out in another few weeks!)

I drive mine with aluminum on asphalt. Weight is about 1378g with electronics.
Thanks for the recommendation. Ordered the MS and lower aluminum bulkheads. Can't wait to get it.

Quick question for the EXO-SIX owners- what size 48p spur are you using for 21.5 USGT?

TIA

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Related question, how do you get them to fit? My 66t spur rubs up against the top deck. 😞

65t 48p is probably the max size
That's approx 35.5mm dia
Close to the 88t 64p I use
