But, if you want an iron-clad solution, I believe the IF413 outdrives are also an option.
Thank you

Front tower is a little stronger, driveshafts are thicker, radio tray/box has been revised, side gaurds changed some & rear shock shaft length changed. And the first TKI3's came with easily breakable outdrives ( I hear that problem has since been fixed ). These are the only changes that I noticed.

TKI2 rear shaft IF337 (66mm)
TKI3 rear shaft IFW149-02 (63mm)

So they are shorter, I assume it's to limit the possible total droop gain since they switched to the shorter rear drive shafts.

Nothing's changed on either front or rear shock or the parts which make them up (ok, crappy new IF346-09 HC bladders I don't count as quite a few have had problems with them and the original -03 bladders solves the problems instantly). Both the front and rear shock shafts are also unchanged:

Front shock shaft: IFW140-02 L=53mm
Rear shock shaft: IFW149-02 L=63mm

And that's how it's always been ever since the initial release of the TKI2 kit and is still unchanged in the TKI3 kit. What misleads some is that there are misprints/typos/wrong part numbers for the rear shaft in some TKI2 Instruction Manuals. Some quote IF337 (L=66mm) but this was never actually used or included in any TKI2 kit. The IF337 shaft is the one from the original TKI with it's long rear shocks.

But rest assured, nothing whatsoever has changed in the shock shafts from the very first TKI2 kit right up until the current TKI3 kit.

Hope that helps clear up any confusion or incorrect information anyone has been told or had provided to them.

Please read my post, below yours, posted 2mins after your post, to clear up your confusion or misunderstandings. It's quite an easy mistake to make as so many iterations of the TKI2 instruction manuals had the wrong part number for the rear shock shaft.

Sorry, I was not trying to give out bad information. When you look up the rear shafts for the TKI2 at Amain they come up as the 66mm shafts so I guess they have the wrong part listed also. I just compared my manuals ( TKI2wc & TKI3 ) when I recieved my new kits to see any changes.
