Default Any chance we will see a rubber boot for them?

They look nice, can't wait to try a set when I get my new TC. I'm only worried about them on carpet and when those threads get all wound up in them. I could see this as a real problem. It would be nice as an option for sure.

That is not AL7075,T6... It is, Spring Steel/ Blue Temper Steel which flexes and back to the original place. Well, depends on your luck, hard crash impact. Spring Steels bends and something breaks too...

FYI...
AL7075 - Preharded/ Stronger Alu (Shinny Anodize Finishing)
AL6061 - Normal Alu (Normal Anodize Finishing)

Yup! It was a just AL7075 with Titanium Hard Coated...
I think RC shop does sell aftermarket Mi4 Spring Steel CVD's.

The rear CVS will be okay.

So we would ask you not to use them until you have fitted the new clips.

Again I can only apologise for the inconvienence, but we want you get get the best from these products.


Did the revised clips get sent out yet? not received mine yet

Never mind
Let's hope it's just a simple clips problem...
It took a bit longer than a simple clips replacement
Fingers crossed

It seems Litemodz was able to get back some of the shipment and are installing the new clips.

With regard to the above quote. We at Litemodz are now working flat out to produce a totally revised FRONT CVS, this decision was made after a lot of discusion with our engineers as we felt that whilst the replacement clips would cure the problem, a redesign was necessary. We are therefore going to replace, the original Front CVS's supplied to all our customers who have already taken delivery as quickly as possible and any orders not yet sent will obviously receive the updated version. I can only apologise once again for the problem, but as I previously stated we want you to get the best from this product.
I think we have been totally open about what has happened to everyone either via e-mail, phone calls or from me writing on this forum and are in no way hiding the problem or what we are doing to rectify it.

As for Demon offering them at below RRP that is entirely up to them, we have no control over the margins they work to. We are not ripping anyone off by selling them at the RRP.
