Awsome! This could be interesting, would work for RWD too, yes?

yep but thats what an MR-02 is for :D
This is for replacating real life fwd cars,

...but, some people might want the ability of narrower bodies + rwd so dno.

Does seem a good idea rather than cutting shafts!

Although these look nicely made, it should be pointed out that any aftermarket CVDs for the MA010 are easily disassembled. You can use the bare joint-less wheel axle to do a FWD conversion, it'll serve exactly the same function as these Qteq parts.

That and these things don't solve the key issue- diff still being inside. IMO 2WD conversion kit should come with some kind of gear holder (be it like the one I made for RWD conversion) or something else to allow you to remove the diff.

What is keeping you from removing the Diff? If you remove the front diff, just keep the front pinion in, if you are removing the rear diff, just put a dab of super glue (might not even be necessary) on the spur where it slides on to the shaft.

I'm saying that an aftermarket conversion kit should include some kind of pieces to help hold the gears in place without the need for glue.

In the front, there is no need for glue, in the rear, with some brands of spurs you do, with some you don't. If you can find a simpler solution than gluing the spur in place, please expound... I always glue my spurs in place on my AWD, so to me, it is simply a matter of pulling out the rear diff or front diff, using the qteq parts, or the regular axles from any universals.

making a FWD would be awesome, though i imagine it wouldn't run too well on the track :]

Thats for "true" RWD. Styrene could well be replaced with aluminum. As for FWD, I'd just figure some kinda way to secure the shaft gear in place without using up too much extra weight. This could probably be done with some kind of aluminum contraption that could hold itself in place using the diff box's design.

It handles like FWD would- understeers a little, but its not as noticeable due to the better servo over the MR.
