I can say the same about the TIR stuff. No problems with their new Worlds edition drive shafts. I use the delrin outdrives on both the front spool and the alloy rear diff, so there is no need for any...

Modeltech has hit the nail on the head. Is there a problem, and if so, what is it.

The Worlds entry was oversubscribed months before it happened. Is there a problem?

On a much smaller scale, we...
