What is required to run 98mm

What is needed to run a 98mm body? As I understand it you need:

1. a 98mm body (obviously)
2. some type of 98mm chassis extension
3. 98mm gears.

Is this correct?

Also, do you need a 98mm driveshaft or is this just to use 94mm gears with a 98mm wheelbase? I just need to know if it is necessary to run 98mm a driveshaft.

Some say he never blinks, and that he roams around the woods at night foraging for wolves... all we know is, he's called The Stug.

What type of suspension do you plan on using?

You do not need a 98mm specific driveshaft. Atomic has a 98mm SAS, and Kyosho has a 98mm DWS, PN has a more traditional standard kingpin 98mm configuration. These will all do 98mm without need for side extention brackets. Which reduces a little slop for gear mesh and geometry tweak.

I have not tried the DWS at 98mm, but this would be the route that I would go, especially since you use a bearing in the DWS to hold the spur gear in place, which means that there is a considerable reduction in slop at the 98mm position.

If you do use the Kyosho DWS at 98mm, and do not plan to use the bearing, I would recommend using ATM or PN spur gears, as they will hold the driveshaft better (Kyosho spur is a little loose on the shaft). If you use the bearing, you can only use the Kyosho spur.
