Im pretty sure the Evo 50 torque tube 0412-162 will be a perfect fit.
I have not tried it though.

The shaft drive will work as far as I know. I will say I have not tried. I see little advantage in the shaft drive at least for me at my level of flying.

The Belt, at the right tension gives me no bounce back and holds through all of my maneuvers. The Hirobo drive gears on the tube won’t strip like other brands but there is always a limit to how hard you can put your tail blades into the ground with out having to wrench on your helicopter for 30 mins.
With the belt you can practically bury the tail blades and you will be just fine providing you don’t have to replace your tail blades themselves.

Crashes are also nice because you can’t really get a bow in your belt.
It’s also hard to break a belt (unless you break your boom and shred your belt along the razor of the boom break).

Our belts are made of Kevlar. You know what that means folks.....

BULLETPROOF!

I converted an evo 50 to tube drive and i found it to be a bit too tail heavy and found no performance benefit!

Torque tubes a great way for heli manufacturers to make more money from their consumers. Belts reduce the cost of crashes and the SDX does not inherit any "efficiency" problems like a Logo 14 has with it's belt driven tail.

Mikado's all run on a belt, which shows that torque tubes are not necessary. On the other hand, Logo 14 has efficiency issues with its belt. It does not auto as well and could possibly benefit from a torque tube.
