Mira Outdrives

7075 T6 Aluminum outdrives designed to allow the TOP Racing Photon Spool to use XRay Drive Shafts. The primary goal is to enable the XRay ECS Drive Shafts on the Photon, or any other 40 tooth pulley based touring car, such as the Team Associated TC6 or Yokomo BD-5. These new outdrives are designed to support both 52mm and 50mm XRay ECS Drive Shafts.

Ordering Information

I have used Side Piece Mira Outdrives since day one which was sometime in January and have blown 2 blades total racing weekly indoors. I used to ruin multiple blades every race day with small wall taps.

Now I run XRay Ecs's and the Side Piece Mira Outdrives and never worry about blades anymore.


The usage of ECS (also known as LCD) drive shafts is to reduce or eliminate the chatter (noise/vibration) within Rubber Tire Touring Cars when leveraging maximum steering throw. These ECS shafts increase car stability and just make cars easier to drive. The XRay ECS products have proven themselves time and time again.

Why name the product Mira?

Here at Side Piece Racing we like to name our products after ladies... which is of course the true inspiration for the name Side Piece. Mira is a female name with a Slavic origin meaning "wonderful; peace; prosperous". Lets hope so!

Installation Info

T.O.P. Photon

With 50mm XRay ECS you should put a 1mm shim between the Mira Outdrive and the T.O.P. Spool to reduce the breakage of blades.
