Default Associated 162mm main driveshaft?

Hi guys, so yes im new here, i did take my 15 years old tc3 for a spin after almost 4 full years of retirement and managed to hit a curb... In consequences the driveshaft bent and i cant seem to find the replacement. Anyone familiar with these? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I saw that 175mm length on another site, too, and wondered about it. They say it's for a tc3, though. You might get some good info by calling a main or tower and explaining the problem. it may be something like a screwed up spec sheet. LOL then again, it may cost you 10 bucks to find out if it will fit. Good luck

They're still all over e bay for under 10 bucks. you'll probably just have to buy one and see if it fits. Or straighten the one you have.
