Sorry.

I am planning to get the TiR CVD to run the one-way or front diff. How durable are the CVD? Do the axle get broken easily?

Also, have anyone heard or have experience with the Mechanica Ceramic Bearings?

What kind of problems did you have with the CVDs?

I ve used for the past 20 runs TIR's front spool with the derlin outdrives, the so called "PRO COMPETITION SPOOL"



I use the stock HOT BODIES lightweight aluminum outdrives which are also supposed to be fragile.

I run on a very large, high speed, medium traction track.

I 've had great success and not a single failure.

To my understanding, running a spool, even one made of steel, is not recomended for high bite/traction, carpet tracks.
As also seen at the ICC LAS VEGAS race a diff upfront is the better choice.

Spools cannot absorb the energy generated from cornering and accelerating as there is no moving part to give way. In this respect when traction is high, it is normal to have problems with durability.

Manufacturers are trying to built them as light as possible to enhance performance, not to make them bullet proof.

I think TIR's spool is as good as they can get. Just stay away from crashes and don't use it on high bite carpet tracks.

I guess I will have to piece together a diff then.
So then for the CVDs, should I go for the TiR ones or the HB Steel set? Or just stick with the stock ones? Thanks.

BTW, this is for carpet (stock and 19T).

Really? I can't tell the difference by looking at pictures of them. Are they a different length? Or is the hole in a different spot?
