Use the smallest o-ring on your outdrives to lessen dogbone movement. What transmitter are you using?

Default CVD's

Does anyone know if there are any aftermarket CVD's that will fit the evo II. The kit ones seem to bend far too easily. I know I should crash less but..................

JohnA,

Humm... i'm a "crasher" myself, but I have never bend any of the universal drive of my EVOII. I think you are one of those "talented" crasher, who crash at the "right" angle all the time. Cuz I have never had the problem of the CVD bending.

I think Integy makes CVD for EVOI, not sure about EVOII. I think Tamiya has a reinforced one that has just come out, which can be used in 04 series cars and EVOII, you might wanna check that out.

Thnks TRF-Powered, Im really not that bad, thye CVD's on my pro 2 are as new after nearly 2 years but my evo II has a noticeable buckle on both the front VCD's after about 3 runs.

I'll check out the new Tamiya ones.

JohnA,

don't take my word seriously, I was just kidding. It may just be bad luck that you crash the car just so perfectly that the CVD got bend. lol!

I think Tamiya also released a new blue CVD, that can be used on EVO2~

I wonder if they are going to release a blue version of Evo2.

I think they might do it if some good racer decided to run EVO2 in all national events.

Dont worry, I wasn't too upset by your comments, I know you were only kidding.

By the way, do you know if there is a problem with the HPI Stratus body shell, the fronts of mine seem to crack and dent very quickly.

Well, I don't know much about HPI body shell, I never ran one.

Avoid crash will make the body last a lot longer. if you crash head on many times, your body might crack on the wheel walls. Since that's the place that's taking all the stress when hit.

Oh yah....

But the crappy thing about the Tamiya bodies is that they have 2 mould lines that run from the side to side on the plastic itself....ugly.....not what i would expect from tamiya....
but their rear wings support are nice tho.....more realistic..
