As far as I know they have bought TR but they are different people and service is very good. Which is a relief

I was wondering about that. Looks like the same stuff in black!

The RC section of TiR (they make stuff for full sized race cars etc as well) was bought by some other people who will now trade under the name Litmodz.

Provided their quality control has improved their stuff should be fine.

I wondered if this would ever come to rc from the real world. If anybody has ever stripped there truck apart they would recognize this CV joint style.

A picture of a full scale one. Looks like a great alternative to double jointed shafts.

On Red RC, they were just starting to test them. So it will be a while before we see them for sell if ever.

Hi Guys, I can confirm that TR has been bought out and now operates under the Litemodz banner.
Yep the new CVD is being tested and the results and feedback we've had so far are brillant (I'd have to say that wouldn't I ) The "chatter" problem you get from a UJ has gone and in doing so has improved tyre wear, and comments from our test drivers has been that the car runs a lot smoother.
More information will be forthcoming soon, I can't give you a release date or price yet, but they will be available for all current models.

Good to hear someone is picking up from where TR left off. TR's biggest problem was their customer service. It wasn't just bad, it was probably the worst in the industry. I hope new ownership means a clean sheet in that regards.

But will they work better than good ol Losi LCD's? They really do stop the chatter. These do look very interesting.

Any chance the pin for the diff side of the cvd will be held in with a set screw like the aftermarket ones for the Corally? I'm wanting better CVDs for my Corally but want to use the steel caps instead of the plastic ones. My spool keeps eating the plastic caps.
