That rear end gives more traction/forward bite, coming out of turns, it isn't as good on bumps or ruts. So if Adams The Dirt setup doesn't get you traction and you're using same tires and foams as the fast guys and your track is smoooooth it might be worth it.

Why is it that the CVDs give better forward traction but the stock axles handle better? Everyone says this but its just not clear logically why it would matter.

Cool, at least you already have the engines to expirament with. The only problem I can forsee, is that aluminum spacer that goes on the outside of the clutchbell, it's standard as well, so you gotta find something similar in 5mm.

Generally speaking whenever you make the rear end stiffer you will gain forward traction and lose sidebite. The CVD's pivot is made from steel and will bind up a lot more when under power. The Losi universals have a plastic yoke in them and do not bind up as much under load, that lets the suspension move easier and not feel as stiff making them handle each in their different ways on the track.

I have the Sport NT. Really cool truck. I got rid of that rediculous diffnut holder and replaced it with a different nut of a larger size. The diff stay's nice and tight for several runs but I check on it occasionally if it loosened (which I doubt though..). I also have the M16 to use when the Mach .15 dies out. BTW this was taken at my sister's house in Greenwich, CT.
