Default MIP Aluminum CVD's for T3... Worth the extra bucks?

Hey I'm gunna get some alCVD's for my T3, but I was just checkin to see if they'll hold up? I'm thinkin so. Also how much wieght do you save? Is it noticeable(wieght)?

LMK, might be a dumb question but still....

I haven't used the aluminum ones on a offroad truck, but my buddy has the MIP CVD shiny bones with great success. Goodluck.

I dont suggest the aluminum CVD's for anyone outside of prostock... You'll propably bend or break them in the first couple runs.

He wouldn't notice any difference from them, you notice it on high grip tracks...

A CVD is a CVD, it'll handle the same between those 2, the shiny's do look cool though.

well today I made a visit to Hobby People, to pick up a few "musts", unfortunately they didnt have the most important... (Right Rear T3 Hub carrier)... anyways, and my parents were doing their xmas shopping since they were there, (I asked for MIPCCVDs, black, Peak Charger, and a Rc10GT) and they got me the Black ones. it doesnt matter, it'll look better, cuz I'm runnin almost all black parts, including HPI F5 grey rims... with exception to a blue motor plate and a Yellow RPM gear cover. The Blue Motor Plate is gonna be replaced with a polished one sometime this week though.

Thanks for the help with the alCVD questions!!!
Jeff

Run the Aluminum!

They work great in my XXXT and I can't imagine them not working well in your AE.

They are MUCH lighter and they hold up just as well as the shiney's.

Keep in mind that only the shaft is AL. The pins that key into the outdrives are the same material.

Jesus people..............

If you aren't racing the Al is really of little value. Spend the money elsewhere.
