Active Hobby Adjustable Universal Shafts

Active Hobby has released a set of adjustable universal driveshafts for use with the recently released adjustable suspension arm series. The biggest problem we noticed with adjustable suspension is the requirement for different length of Universal Drive Shafts. This is due to the difference in length of the lower suspension arms. These new universal driveshafts are capable of up to 10mm of adjustment. They have also been designed with extra weight to allow for more stable operation without chatter. These new drive shafts are now more capable. The new U-joint style drive shafts are capable of up to 60 degrees of operational angle for Tamiya and Yokomo chassis. The R31 equivalents are still restricted to approximately 55 degrees of usability. If you like the adjustable suspension arms by Active, then these should be an additional purchase as well.
