Default mtx4r lite weight shafts

looking at replacing the two speed shaft and mid block shaft any suggestions?

it looks like the nt1 shafts would work?

Dont do it, it`s totaly useless...
The only gain you make is a few grams on the totalweight of the car,
if you look at the rotational mass its near to nothing, since the inertia is calculated by maas that is placed at a distance off the rotational center...
So if you drill mass away from the center, it doesn`t do a thing.

Next to that, the lttle inertia that is reduced is on a axle that from the motor has a reduction in RPM, this means we have to speak about refelcted inertia,
s lets say the reduction is 2, then the inertia that counts is 2^2=4. but we have to devide it.
So if we speak about refelcted inertia, then the weight loss only counts 1/4....

Its just a looker....
