Just want to know more. Because I know some companies have similar design like OFNA, Mugen... That's why I was wonder is this patent?
Check this out:

http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-P...AND&d=ft00&s1='constant+velocity+drive'&OS="constant+velocity+dr ive"&RS="constant+velocity+drive"

Sure the CVD is developed by Mr. Moore but he is not the original designer. He just apply the concept for RC cars. I don't know, maybe he need to pay the patent fee for the Inventors: Cook; Estle A. (Rte. 1, Box 196, Butler, MO 64730); Cook; Loretta E. (Rte. 1, Box 196, Butler, MO 64730)

Similar joints have been arround for over 100 years now, much earlier than RC.
