Any suggestions or other products...

Just get the MIP Cvds for the jato i havent looked but i am pretty sure that they make a set. They are by far the strongest of all of them. The Vantage Cvds always looked a little weak if you asked me.

I agree, get the MIP CVDs. I used them on my old XXXNT before the AD2 came out. The quality of steel is very good, they last a long time and are rebuildable. Just make sure to clean them, re-lube them, and lock-tite the set screw.

i have been running the Traxxas cvd's in my Jato for almost two years. they have performed well, better than the plastic stock drives. the only problem i have had is the diff case wears quickly and will not hold oil. cannot say much for the Vantage one, no experience with them yet. if i need new ones they would be a consideration. i like their pipes.

Default cvd's

Way2fst4u: If your considering the vantage cvd's, i would listen to everyone that posted here.. I have had nothing but problems with them. I have broke 3 of them in the last 2 weeks. And the problem is, All 3 were broke on the road, and didn't hit anything, the first broke right when i pulled out of my garage not even 1/4 throttle in 1st gear. The 2nd and 3rd broke at 3/4 throttle in 2nd gear.... Weird thing is they all broke in the same place..

well i think i will stick with the traxxas ones then, they cost the same as the MIP. i have gotten many races out of the first set of axles, over a year of friday night races with some saturdays too on the first set. this set has not come loose yet, but is is only 6 months old. my truck is set up for the track though, single speed, 2.5, and lightened a bit. the jato should come with cvd's out of the box, those plastic drives twist, even with the 2.5.
