I've been using the composit CVD's and the plastic diff halves ever since I built my car, I've run a 9 turn motor and not had any wear at at all, however I also use the Schumacher 'blades' on the end of the CVD. See photos

thanks but what i was wondering is the part on the CVD that is connected to the axle (axle that hold hex hub and wheel)

what i am wondering is if it would crack or snap there

Thanks

anthony390- soz mate my comp caught a worm lol all i did was remove the bearings from the diff gear thing and tightened it right up, its taken everything drift on road racing and some carpet racing. But i wouldnt do it with plastic ones they may melt lol like mine did when it got loose.

Nice BMI mate, i had the blue warpspeed demon it didn't make a massive improvement in handling but looks nice. Iv'e now gone back to the FT graphite chassis and found it just as good.

Awesome! Those make total sense - evenly distribute all that power instead of concentrating it on the pins. Will those also fit the steel or aluminum diff halves?
