Just wondering if these parts are worth getting?

Kyosho VZW209 : Titanium 2-Speed Shaft
Kyosho VZW211 : Titanium Bevel Shafts for the Rear Diff

Do a lot of people use them?

Quite a few people here have it or are getting it. It's really hard to say if "a lot" of people are using it.

Thanks RMD

I assume if you run a diff at the front then you would need 2 sets of the Kyosho VZW211 : Titanium Bevel Shafts for the Rear Diff ??

Also does this part come with the WCE kit Kyosho VZW213 : Lightweight Clutch Bell ?

Yes on the VZW211. The WCE does not come with the lightweight clutch bell.

I'm using them but it's hard to say if they are a performance item. I haven't seen my lap times decrease when I put them in but they also haven't increased.
I think a lot of what we do is really not required to gain performance but is done more because we can. I said when I got this car I'd keep it standard but then I cheated on myself and now I can't stop. Is there professional help available for me like (r/c anonymous).

Check Serpent USA's website. I think there is only 1 option per size and shore. They do not make a 2mm offset. Paolo did tell us that they are actually 1mm offset (even though the box says 0) and they fit perfectly on my car with the VSW007 universals.

You don't run those tires at 66mm do you.

Wait a minute... you aren't running that car off-road are you? Your track is paved or lava or something like that... right?

62mm rears with 60mm fronts work the best. Some have said 61mm fronts but you cant keep the 1mm difference for more than 5 laps

Cheers

if you get the kyosho lightweight mainshaft be carefull because the 12mm collar your first gear hub sits on can lock onto the shaft, and thats a mega pain in the rear... i have had it happen with both a genuine kyosho one first and then an east aftermarket shaft. no problems with the std steel shaft that comes with the kit. i think it might have something to do with the two dissimilar metals and if the screw isnt tight as holding the first gear and collar on the shaft spins inside the collar causing it the burr up.
