Im about to order a set for my mi4lp but wanted to know what people thought would be better to get. I was planning on getting the front cvs with a spool but didnt know if the stealth spool was a good idea or just the standard spool. Also, when you purchase the spool, it comes with a set of dogbones. Will i be able to use those bones as replacements with the cvs driveshafts if one were to bend or break?

What do the LiteModz Standard competition and Pro edition spools look like?
Also silly but I'll ask, do the CVS's handle Mod motors and clipping walls better the the CVD's? I am a Stock drivers the like playing Mod on practice weekends and don't handle the car 100%

Well i guess what my greatest concern is can you use the stealth spool with the stock bones or only the standard litemodz spool will work with the stock bones with blades? . The litemodz site does not have a lot of picture nor are the pictures consistent with the product description that are pictured so i can't see what the standard spool looks like and see how the spool differs from the stealth.

Hi Malc
I was watching your car at the WLRC BTCC last weekend and it looked awsome, were you using the CVS drive shafts there ??? What difference did they make at WLRC compared to your standard drive shafts

Thanks Adrian

Hi but which Adrian is this?
Thanks for those kind comments :0). Well I could say yes I was running V3 CVS's but in fact I was in the rear of the car, but TIR ones in the front. The car defo has more traction at the rear with these CVS's, but I do know the car turns in earlier and Is far smoother into and out of a corner, and with the geared diff I've made fit my HB TC will be even quicker, but was running a ball diff at the BTCC and for the finals of the GP the week before.
Cheers Malc :0)

Good question. They have been available at Demon it seems for a while. Most likely those who put down their money first in good faith to support the company will get them last. Here we go again another fiasco worthy of TR so no change there.

Always loved the products, great ideas - consumer nightmare

Tried a new set today (latest revision) and they worked fine.

Four races with only a few minor crashes, so far, so good.

I would certainly keep an eye on the amount of crap that the grease can attract.

I removed some of the excess grease before installing, but some of it still comes out.
I haven't yet taken them apart to inspect the balls etc but the driveshaft's themselves are fine.

My first run on new tyres got me a personal track record on that layout.
