Are the titanium differential bevel shafts worth getting?

The standard ones weigh a ton !!

VZW211 64-grade Titanium Bevel Shaft



Cheers

I just doubled up the rear shock tower, I did break a couple of them last week. It is a ton stiffer than the single tower though, do you guys run a softer spring when running the thicker towers or double towers.

I think anytime you can reduce rotating mass in the drivetrain is a good thing. I also uses the hollow middle shaft, the titanium 2 speed shaft, lightweight flywheel and clutch bell. The only thing I did use that added weight is the steel first speed pinion. The stock one just wears out too quickly.

Randy, most people use the same springs. I use the skyline 4mm shock tower and the package gives you a couple of shims so that you can mount your shock bottom a bit out to preserve the original shock angle geometry.

Jeff,
I agree. Are all the parts you labeled Kyosho? I do have the lightweight clutchbell. If so, where can I get the rest of them?
Thanks

I was just going to ditch the 2mm spacer on the upper shock mount and use a .7mm spacer instead, should keep the same geometry that way.

Just finished building the kit this morning. But I've got two questions to ask,

1. Which way does the outer gear mount, with the tubes on one side facing outwards or inwards?

2. Which engine should fits this car without the manifold rubbing or how do I fix this problem?
thanks
