Default Interest Check: Thicker/Stronger CVA Bones Associated RC8/RC8B/RC8.2/RC8.2e/SC8/SC8e

Hi, this is an interest check to see how many people are interested in harderned steel + thicker CVA bones to replace Associated part #ASC89102.

If there is sufficent interest especially from bashers worldwide, GHEA Racing of Sweden will start production on them. Do spread the word around and don't forget to come back here and post so GHEA will act accordingly.

Here's to hoping this is a success and we finally have a poper aftermarket driveshaft that is alot stronger

The front cva from Thunder Tiger Eb4 S3 fits and is twice as thick as the AE one.

Limit the Droop and i have heard that the RC8.2 front outdrives help with bending.
Im intrested in a better axle that is much stronger however im not paying big money for it GHEA is pretty expensive !

I do have a RC8TCE though not the buggy/SC. But its the same type of steel on all of the axles.

Your funny... The last time I checked, AE had one of the heaviest buggys out today.



The problem is with the front droop, thicker CVs will probably bind the suspension up.

Its the outdrives really the axles sit in to far . Limiting the droop especially on the front helps with the bending. The new RC8.2 is lighter than the older models.

I heard somebody on here say to use the Associated MTG axles and the LST axle couples i believe. Somebody said also they used the front RC8.2 outdrives and it helped i bought a pair and there about a 1mm shorter or so though.

I know if GHEA would make axles for the RC8T i would take a look at them and get them as long as it doesnt cost a arm and a leg though.
