Cool deal. I've always had great luck with MIP stuff, so those might be next on the list.. Are the axles any stronger than stock?

of all the cars I've raced with that had the MIPs..I'm yet to break an axle after a hard hit. the bones...hmmm aluminum...yes they will bend but not as quickly as the yok's. the Shiney bones simply the best and virtually unbreakable...great for the fronts.

I'll order up a few sets to try out, see if I can get away with aluminum on front

rc-zombies: would you have a link to where those front MIP cvds (preferrably with steel bones) can be ordered? or a part number would do great. and are they sold/packaged by yokomo or are they sold directly by MIP? thanks in advance for any info.

randman: where are you ordering the front MIP CVds from?

I also noticed that the pins of my square dogbones wear pretty fast, especially when using them with a one- way. Does anyone if the "pin-cushions" from X-ray
will fit the SD bones( they sell them seperately)?

I would not think the XRAY drive shaft caps is a solution to your wear problem. I have started using a tougher alternative that slides over the pin and is held on with an o-ring. I found nylon tubing laying around, used it with my solid diff, and they have lasted much longer than the XRAY caps.

Do you mean the cups that hold the main shaft? If so, there should be large o-rings that go round the cup and hold the pin in place.

I Wanted to chime in on the Yokomo bones issue and say that I also have had an occasional problem with the Yok (as well as Tobee) bones bending and breaking. Since buying the car late summer, I have gone through about 5 sets of front (3 Tobee and 2 Yok --from the kit) CVDs. That's 10 total!

I recently picked up some of the old style hardened universal cvds from Yokomo in the hope that this will alleviate this annoying (not to mention expensive) problem. So far, so good.

I also had this problem with the old MR4TC and ultimately picked up the hardened Yok universals and that solved the problem for me...you might try doing the same.

Cheers.
I'll bear it mind - thanks for the info. To date, I'm yet to break any driveshafts - but rather I've seized 3. The small amount of work I've done to them seems to have cured the problem so far...........
