Has anyone run the square titanium axles yet, how durable are they actually?

what's the setup you have on the car atm?
Setup is all over the place, I'm trying so many different things, so I was looking for someone elses starting point for me to work from.

I've found someone else with the same problem - he changed from a Monster to an Orion stock and solved it - perhaps too much power in an extra-free transmission has been the problem? We'll see...

The MR-4TC CVD kits should work on our car, at least that's what everyone has told me so far.

Cool RE:CVD

Thanks Utieh for posting the cvd info I appreciate it. I was going to measure cvd's at the hobby shop
My car is down for a bit to an unfortunate board hit where the front right cvd sheared and the oneway drive cup magically disappeared on me. I've been watching Speedtech and other stores but apparently the wait for that little part will be awhile. Sooo I'm about to break down and order from Japan.
Big kudo's and thanks to all of you guys for posting such great info on here!!! Now I think I'll go back to my lurking whilst I longingly stare at my SD and dream of racing it this weekend...

Porter: Well, I got the car running well now. My biggest problem was with my stock motors. Since I wasn't planning on running stock there this year, I didn't bother to take care of them. But since the guys seem to be dragging their feet on the 19turn thing, I just got mine rebuilt so they should be performing much better. Even with the motor weaknesses, my last two races out at Mike's with the car have been nearly flawless and fast.

Jeff: heres what I have been running at Mikes. I'll just list the things I changed from the kit set up.

-Front end-

-Shocks: 70wt oil, stock piston, long shock ends, 64mm length
-lower shock position: one hole out from stock
-droop: 6mm
-ride height: 5mm

-Rear end-

-Shocks: 70wt oil, Yok no. 1 piston, 61mm length
-lower shock position: one hole in from stock
-droop: 5mm
-ride height: 5mm

Remember, this is only stuff that I changed. Anything you don't see here is stuff I left as stock. Also, this is the dual diff setup. Once the one-ways become availible, I will try it out and see what set up I will run.

-other stuff of note

-motor: Peak Hellfire
-gearing: 70t spur/22t pinion=final:7.48
-Tires: Take-Offs C22 (it was pretty cool outside)-No additive-
-Speedcontrol: GT7
-Body: Protoform Altima

Hope this helps when its time for you to pay us a visit out at Mikes.

So four rear CVDs Dang, that will be around $55 for a shiny or alu set.

I don't believe they sell a set of 4 rears, do they? All I've seen is pair for $26, so front and rear is about $52 + tax.
