They seem to work perfect and haven't bent so far. The other advantage is that they're pretty cheap ($13 for the set) compared to $18 a piece for the TIR axles!

Yep, it's a direct fit with the Cyclone outdrives. Part number is TA-53501. Tower has them and RcModel has them too.

recently tir seem to have been going through a bad batch of products, last year i know people that were running lower turn motors than 12 with them and that they were hardly wearing atall (in a different car). but recently i know people that have been running them in 27t and the pins wear out after a few weeks. i think that you should contact tir directly and ask them about this problem.

Despite the problems with people have been having with the TIR CVDs I still think they are the best you can get by far. Yes I did break an axle on mine with the Pro 4, but I did get a free replacement, TIR stick by their products! You can break any part if you are going fast enough or if you hit something at the wrong angle, but all I know is that in the period of about 9 months in which I had my CVDs on the Pro 4 there was NO wear at all on the pin holes and they still ran as straight as new.

Why bother with the Tamiya parts HB has their own harden steel pieces, I have been running the since day one with great success.

On an other durability related issue: I have been braking the heads off the ball studs lately, 4 in the past 2 races. Unhappy with their strength, or lack of, I wanted to buy the Ti ball ends the Square made, but are no longer available. SO I had to find an alternative, I searched the parts wall for anything that would work I ended up using Xray ball ends and Ball Joints (not exactly cheap) the part #s are as follows:

30 3222 ball joint 5mm unidirectional open
30 2650 5mm ball end with thread

For the steering bellcrank Im using a 30 7454 5mm pivot ball double shoulder and a lond screw because the treads are too short on the ball ends to properly maintain the spacing for the ackerman setting. A big plus is that I can now use the outside setting on the rear hub because the joint/ball combo has a lower profile than the stock set up, even if you use Shumacher cups. Also the height of the Xray ball is identical to the HPI one so it wont change your roll center setting.

Because they're available in my LHS, which is not the case with the Cyclone steel pieces. The fit may be better if you have the Tamiya outdrives as well but it's hardly noticeable that they're a little shorter than the stock Cyclone bones.

HotBodies steel front swing shafts #HB61043
