Hey guys

Curious if an alloy NL tail shaft would go straight into an EL / EF sedan? Do they just swap over ? Any parts that should be replaced or need to be added?

I was wondering cause knowing that the NL's a little bit longer in length is this only because the body shape itself is longer and there is no added length to the tailshaft as the gearbox and diff sit in the same place as all the other cars from that series?

Cheers

No a NL is a Long wheelbase and the Futura is a short wheel base. The tailshaft from the NL will be too long to fit.
