Ahh the vital bit of info. Thank you.

What part of the DCJ did you break? The V1 DCJ's are tanks and I've run them for years without breakage.

Just curious.

they are tanks. I have about 3 pairs leftover from the cyclone era and run them in my TCXX with the multi-front diff from the cyclone TC. After all those years I only have broken 1.

nice! well, if you have access to a drill press you can open up a hole and use the hpi cvd rebuild kit. I was looking at the pics of the V2 DCJ on HPI website, and the only difference I see is a hole so you can install the set screw.

Sorry I left that out, both times I purchased dcj's they came with the needed bearings for the inner side.
3mm wide instead of 4mm
