What part of the DCJ did you break? The V1 DCJ's are tanks and I've run them for years without breakage.

Just curious.

they are tanks. I have about 3 pairs leftover from the cyclone era and run them in my TCXX with the multi-front diff from the cyclone TC. After all those years I only have broken 1.

nice! well, if you have access to a drill press you can open up a hole and use the hpi cvd rebuild kit. I was looking at the pics of the V2 DCJ on HPI website, and the only difference I see is a hole so you can install the set screw.

Sorry I left that out, both times I purchased dcj's they came with the needed bearings for the inner side.
3mm wide instead of 4mm
