    No. It will need to be balanced.

    I used a 1/8 prop shaft (the one you list is a 4mm - slightly bigger in the strut or outdrive then reduced to 1/8 for the prop)
    The one I used was This.

    Ahh. Ok. Use the one you selected, you may have to enlarge the outdrive bore to accept it.

    I run a 430 or 431 on mine stock, plastic.

    I use an octura 1/18" prop shaft and replace the u joints with .093 flex cable, but keep the 3mm solid drive shaft. Cheap conversion that way, I had to do 6 of them!

    Ordered up the prop and the shaft along with a new u joint. Mine was all rusted. had to drill it out to get the old prop shaft out. Looks like its staying this way for now but i wanna run the mini car hardware in the future. I found it on there website, i just gotta pair it all up.
