They look like the ones Losi uses in there Jrxs R. I have a Jrxs R and can't really see any advantage with them. Although I have never ran CVD's in the front so I can not say for sure. I do not like the idea of having 2 joints instead of 1. One more pin that can come out and wear out. I guess if the rebuild kit is close to the normal CVD then give it a try.

I've been looking for one for a month now... The one I have is toast from a freak rear end hit.

The other two chassis manufacturers are out of stock as well....

do you think will worth the money, mayby with some upgrade, or it is too old?

and which is the lipo chassis, do you have a link?

thnaks very much
The lipo upgrade can be bought from all the hong Kong based online stores but is out of stock everywhere at the moment, but to tell you the honest truth I wouldnt buy a new 416x now. After getting the 416x and the lipo chassis upgrade it would be only a bit cheaper than waiting a bit longer and buying a 417.

I think he was asking droop and not ride height. I always start off with 2mm of droop above ride height. Right now I am running 1.5mm of droop above ride height which is 5mm in front and 5.5mm in rear.
