The only time I have moved the bearing holder up is on asphalt with a spool. It gets the cvds level and helps with some of the "chatter" of a spool and that is only in the front.

How about the front bearing holders, does the bearing ride low there too.

What are the effects of running the front one up and the back one down? I recently put my carpet spec together that way it seems to have great steering but a little loose in the back would this cause the problem?

Supposly from what I know (and I know very little) is when haveing the diff's up you loose traction .

if you run the rear diff higher than the front...it will give you more steering(and front bite), while accelerating...

Default Replacemnt CVD's..and other stuff

Replacemnt CVD's..

Has anyone found a replacement MIP cvd. I run at tracks that don't carry RDX parts and wanted to know if anyone know what cvd fits as a temp replacement>? I end up supplying other rdxers from my stash.

I also found that the one way out drives can be replaced with the Mugen ones from the mtx3..

Thanks

I asked that same question several weeks ago and Jeff Brown answered it. I tried it and he was right...of course he was.

A rasied diff will offer less traction on that end. So if you raise the front diff, you have less front traction...etc.

BadBoy: Im looking as well. The length of the CVD bones are 50.20mm. If anybody has tried other MIP CVD's for other cars, let us all know. Thanks

Boy I just got off the phone with MIP.. they are the most unhelpful people.. I asked if there was any other dogbone that was 50mm they said they couldn't tell me I'de have to go to a local hobby shop that carried their stuff and measure each one.

They had no chart that showed the sizes and even if they did I'de have to go through corraly or be a manufacter to see it.

MIP Sucks on top of that theres no toll free number so it was on my nickle.. If that person worked for me they'de be fired.. only problems no soltuions.. they call the customer service!?

Okay, just checking around, the TC3 bones, are measured at something around 50mm. Good luck Roger and Badboy.
