Hello folks
Anyone using the TTR drive shafts?
Any comments / advice on so doing?
I've got a deadline, at 73, I want to finish it before I die!

I fitted TTR drive shafts to my previous Elan which I owned for many years and was very impressed with them and had no issues. They are well engineered. For maintenance I regularly greased the sliding splined shafts with constant velocity type grease and also greased the UJs. Also easy to fit.

Hi Bob

I agree with William2's comments. The only extra comment I have is that you need to use droop limiting rear shocker inserts. TTR can supply them as well!!

I have them on my S1 for almost 4 years. No issues. Like mentioned above, grease them regularly.

same as above, strong reliable parts, the droop limit is still a loop of 3mm stainless cable after these years, I'll do a shock limit one day. Maybe...
