2 set steering knuckles,
1 set rear upright,
1 set front CVD,
Bearings,
3 clutch shoes,
2 set of flywheel clutch weight
2 set of 2speed clutch,
1 set body post,
1 set of pivot ball plastic connectors <---- black plastic connectors that holds your steering linkage and suspension damper.
Spur gears,
Pinion gears,
2 one way 1st gear,
2 extra pipes
Shims for clutch gap
glow plugs
tires
Not too sure about the 2 rear belts as we tend to go through more side and front belts - the rubber ones do tend to last longer.

I would also add a pulley set (you can easily strip the rear side pulley and rear front pulley if you get a stone stuck)

Shock shafts and ends are also useful - the ends snap off in a hard crash.

I don't know how many belts will be needed to suit anyone need.

I prepare 2 rear belts because one time a small stone slip into my rear bulkhead, and ruined my rear belt. This was happening when my car went out of course, into grass area.

You are right. I misread the manual. I could have answered my own question if I would have read the manual thoroughly. Thanks again.

only use the lightweight tinanium or alloy variety on the front shaft.

never use titanium shafts for the two speed. only use hollowed steel. i had a hollowed steel shaft and it eventually wore out. get yourself 2 or 3 as spares as they do wear out, and this causes the gears to strip. i'd say change every 6 months if you race once a fortnight.

yes, i have the sato seiki for a year and it shows wear, wish if mugen makes a hollow one, the sato alum shaft is you never disassemble your car it is ok but if you do it 3 or 4 times, it will show sings of wear where the setscrew rests and eventually it will get loose.

Thanks for the info,
I just want a light weight front lay shaft. I have a lighten steel shaft in the rear (not hollow, it just has some of the material removed but it's solid). I forgot about nitro house I will check with them.

Again gentleman, thanks for the info!!!

I'm not sure what brand it is. I picked it up off a fellow on the for sale boards.

The shaft is steel but it's semi hollow its hollow about 3/4 of an inch on both sides and solid in the middle. and it has been lighten every where except where the bearings ride. I'll search boards and see which one it is.

I did a search and I believe it is a K-factory shaft. Holds up well, no signs of wear
