Well I would have being very interested to get some of their parts, but in fairness, after reading about all the issues, I doubt I would, I'll wait for someone else design, soon to be out.

Hi olhipster1, After reading your post I have mailed your LHS and am awaiting a reply from them. With respect email sent from Jan to May I cannot comment but I have looked through the emails and cannot see any. I will try and call them this afternoon to clear this matter up.

The CVS is working very well and we are constantly monitoring their performance by talking to drivers. They do offer super performance and with the evo2 they are able to withstand bangs and bashes well above the normal accidents we have.

The build and installation is a little more complex than with a UJ or double joint but the extra performance gain, in our opinion, is worth it.

If anyone has any questions or queries please PM through this site.

HI Yoke,

You should have received a bulk email via the website which was sent to all customers back in May, informing you that a replacement is available free of charge if problems with the product occurred. This was as a result of a supplier sending in out of spec product which could result in increased wear and/or premature failure.

If you PM your details and explanation of the problem etc I will get the replacement sent to you.

LitemodzUK do you still plan on bring out the LM4-10 touring car - I liked the design when you had the pictures up before. Is there an ETA on it?

Hi Scoyle,

Yes the car is due to be raced in the next few weeks by a few different drivers... Maybe at the next rug racers..

We have learned alot from the CVS and the development that took place in order to make it suitable for ALL drivers. That has been a long and rather painful journey where your reputation rises and falls on how well the products go in the hands of others. To produce something that is essentially a copy of someone elses hard earned design is simple and probably rather full proof, but you want to design something like the ball diff, the losi street weapon, AE TC3 and some of the Schumacher cars, Rough Rider etc.

For someone who loves RC its about design, form and function. Everything else is secondary.

Look forward to seeing it! If you are prepared to publish pictures (or a prototype review ) let me know as I would like to follow this and will put some info on my site at rcracingni.co.uk

Received and build my set of evo2 today
I had 2 previous versions first thing I notice is the quality improvement of the Cage...
they now come with pair of springs (goes into spool cups) ,an extra 2.5mm ball to put under the cage, to help cage movement in axle and ofcourse new 2 shim design to keep CVD in one piece
18TH of December is THEEE Day

And they work awesome!

Just one thing I am a little unhappy with, is the axle part. The strength is not compareable to the original AE axle. Two weeks ago I drove at a circuit with hard concave boards. If you hit them, then the upper wheel touched the board first. This ended in two bend axles after the day. I know this is not the normal form for boards, but it showed one "weak" point. The AE TC5/TC6-axle did not bend. I also experienced axle bend at another track which I never did before.

But unless this point the CVSevo work great and show nearly no play after hours of training and racing
