Hey i got a question will the fantom hubs bolt on the v1r look at the fantom evolution they did the mtx3 hub mod and the front bulk head has the hinge pins 1mm lower to lower the roll center. I will let you guys in on somthing lol the reflex front bulk heads have the hinge pin location 1mm lower than the v1r bulk head. I only know this because i picked up some v1 bulk heads in case i break 1 on my reflex
They wont fit, far too big.

They are a good starting point. You need to run it on your track first and see how it feels to you then change from there.

You should just use the Mugen parts for now. They fit perfect and are cheap.

CVDs do two things. They work more efficiently when the cvd bone is on an angle compared to the axle and they reduce one pin end fitting to slightly reduce drivetrain slop.

In the case of the first point it is mainly useful on the steering since only the steering gets significant angles on it like HAG said. However remember that the friction between the axle and dogbone when subjected to an angle actually has two effects on the suspension itself. When a dogbone is working on an axle at an angle it produces friction, this friction robs drivetrain power but ALSO binds the suspension as it is trying to work. Ie a dogbone at an angle under power will make your suspension stiffer. Also when a dogbone is raked forwards in relation to an axle the friction between the dogbone and axle produce a downwards and rearwards force which actually improves rear traction.

In the case of the second point the slop reduction will make the drivetrain smoother if both CVDs are used and there will be a marginal improvement in acceleration and braking response and smoothness.
