Default B44 CVDs TOO SHORT???????????

Popped 1 out the other night during practice.
Looks as though the cvds should be about a mil longer,Though it may then hit nut side when compressed.
I popped right rear. Thinking of adding 1 more limitter




Yes the limiter is in shock
Camber correct (have added little more now though)
Camber lenth tight

I added an extra limiter to the rear. I hated to use a good tuning adjustment as a crutch for the problem though. The main reason they fall out is the flexibility of the rear arms. If your so inclinde you can twist the arm by hand and make it come out.

noticed rc8s cvds are plenty long.
Also looks as though if longer shaft would hit cup.
Kinda a crappy design.

Wish AE would have done a little more research.

Note when mine popped it was from sideways landing,not a crash. (close though)

Still pretty kick a$$,huge fun

Have you tried shimming the CVD from the inside of the hub, so it sits deeper into the diff half.

No need to add any limiters or add more camber. +1 on shimming. Simply shim the axle on the inside of the hub to seat the cvd shaft deeper in the outdrive. I'm using 2 shims on the inside and no issues here.

Are you using the B4 limiters? Or o-rings?

ASCC4187 .030" plastic limiters...yes, B4 limiters. Your kit should come with them...simply follow the shock building instructions and you will be golden. The kit set up is a pretty dialed starting point. The only changes I made so far was 35wt oil in the front, 30wt in the rear and a modified B4/T4 sway bar using the middle weight bar.

Agree on the shimming...do not adjust via additional limiters.
