Default cvd or dogbone

so i guess my rc10gt is the rtr version which i was unaware of at the time i bought it from a friend. now i bought some wheels the other day for the rear, and the axle would not fit into the wheel. the wheel said its for rc10gt so could it be the rtr is diff from the other rc10gt's. and if so what could i do. also what is the differance between the stock dogbone axles and the cvd axles i think there called. the guy at the local hobby shop couldnt find a bearing for my truck either so what could be going on with my axles.

Dog bones, cups-n-bones, bones-n-cups, CVD's = same thing.

Ummm, No.

CVD's=captured ball-type joints.
Dogbones=2 seperate parts.
U-joints=Captured center block joints.

And the RC-10 GT has 2 different sizes of rear axles.

Ummm yeah. They are not sliders...

CVD= Constant velocity drive shafts, they do have a cup and bone....

Dog bones need cups, No need to get all scientifically technical when essentially they are the same thing.

yea ive heard that the cvd doesnt bind during long suspension travel, and seeing as my car is rarly on the ground i might want to go that route. i live in the desert so id say for every 5 feet it goes it lifts off the ground from the uneven surface. in that sence the dogbones fall out of the binding on the transfer case.

The cvd axlesfor the gt are 3/16 I think and the rtr dog bone axles are 1/4 inch and each needs a rear hub and different bearing to work. and the rear wheels take a different axle pin because of this. you have a rtr and it sounds like wheels for the gt .

A cup and a bone held together with a pin, essentially making them one unit.

Not separate parts like a dogbone.

Not even close to the same thing.

Ask your LHS "I need dogbones for am X1" And watch them hand you Dogbones. Ask them for "universals for an X1" and watch them hand you something completely different.

Are they the same thing?

And in case you haven't been reading, the CVD on a 10GT are DIFFERENT SIZES than the RTR Stubaxles. So they are not the same thing.

I'm betting you got quick change wheels. It uses a different axle and has a larger hole in the middle with a hex on the inside. The normal wheels have a smaller hole with a big + on the inside.

thank you to all you are all helping. the wheels said for the rc10gt, but yes my axle coming out of the hub was just a little wider then the wheel. i do have dogbones, both sides of the axle are the same not like cvd where one said is on a pivot. and from what ive heard and read the rtr does have the other size bearing for the rear hub so thanks for clearing that up for me. my wheels do not have the hex( im assuming the hex is somthing like the ones traxxas uses). my axle come out of the hub and is held in by that pain in the butt axle pin. then the wheel itself goes on and sits on the pin, no hex.
