One of my universal joints (the piece that connects the differential to the rim) keep flying out of my car while racing. I think I need new ones. Below are the ones I found:

3Racing (http://www.atomicmods.com/Products/3Racing-AWD-02HD-Mini-Z-MA-010-AWD-Heavy-Duty-Swing-Shafts-(4)__15396.aspx)

PN Racing

Atomic (http://shop.tinyrc.com/product.php?productid=18097&cat=387&page=1)

I have an MA-015 Tiki Tiki BTW.

Also, can I take out both rear universal joints and run the car as FWD? Or will that hurt it.

I have pn in my car. Those and the diff joints are the first thing I e always upgraded.

Yes you can run fwd. you have to keep the diff on the rear though otherwise the drive shaft will move forward and back and dislodge the front pinion.

My vote for 3Racing.

What are the "diff joints"?

For me, the best are definitely the atomic ones(the most expensive ones, can remember the designation), but the 3 racing ones offer the best value for money ;)

Are the diff joints the part that the universal swing shaft connect into?

Yes, they go inside the diff.
