MRX4 drivers beware: glue on your stickers or they might peel off due to excessive speed

Does anyone have the measurement of the rear CVD of the 4R? Just the rear CVD minus the cup. I need it to replace a shitty CVD on my non Mugen 1/8. The CVD on my 1/8 breaks easily especially when the foam is worn.

Please advice

Rear CVD's is a very uncommon part to see on those cars, the best to do is to put dogbones, cheaper to replace. Which car you have that breaks the rear CVD's?

Thanks Corse-R , I am currently running an XR8 with a Nova 21-35 onboard. handles pretty well when you got the RC and CG correct to the track. It always break on the rounded end of the CVD ......always.

Downgrade the car to rear dogbones... cheaper and harder than some CVD's.

Many have adviced me so too. I guess I cant go wrong with the dog bones.

If the CVD on the MRX's are as tough as the MTX's I dont mind paying a lil premium for 'em.

Thanks again Corse-R

Default Dog Bones

They are all correct. If you guys remember the MRX3 Osaka edition came with rear CVDs, and everyone changed to regular dog bones because they could not handle the torque of motors nowadays on the parking lot tracks. Osaka drives on nice huge flowing tracks where the car has continuous momentum. On a parking lot track, where you come almost to a stop then crack the throttle puts alot of stress on rear CVDs.

Bump steer gimick. No bump steer the car would ideally follow the line through the corner you have choosen reguardless of a little chassis roll or a lot. Were talking about a glass flat track here. By adding "bump steer" as the chassis rolls the out side wheel will continue to turn in at a sharper rate without needing extra input from you.= more steering mid corner when the chassis is loaded to the outside.

Bah, we have rain in the forcast for afternoon. I'll still show up just incase we get time to atleast do some running before mother nature dumps a T storm on us. Sedan and 8th is comin up with me running what I got. The Championships is in the bag though as I'm trying to get Sat off to make it down.

Hey man, if you want to hop it up a little , try the JP racing titanium dog bones.
they are lightened and hardened(good quality) but the stock ones will last as well.
