Default CvD's

Hi all,

My TI cvds are slowly giving up the ghost and displaying rapid wear in my tc4, i have new in a packet the original cvds for the car, they are heavyer by a few grams but they dont have any play or slop, my ti cvds do have a lot of slop, like the wheel turns nearly a quater turn before the transmission moves. So should i limp on with my lighter slopy cvds or put in the heavyer new cvds, will i notice a loss in speed because of the added weight or will i find the car better because it has no slop in the transmission?,

What kind of surface are you running on?

I mostly race on a small carpet track and I would change them out, simply because too much slop can easily be worse than a few extra grams of rotating mass. However, if you are going to replace your CVD bones, you might also want to replace your diff drive cups too. Of course replacing your old Ti CVDs with new Ti CVD's would be the best option.
