So...better spend $ on the Mugen CVD then.. I think they sale it for lik e$33.99. ....one things... I hate the oneway any how...so..I just use the front diff...this way I can use the brakes. But..if I use the diff...will this less strass on the CVD??

Also..I was just looking at the Rear and front CVDs... I notice it's difference parts #...but it looks identical to me. Are they the same?? I think they are.

Default Buy the Mugen ones

They say the RD logic ones hold up also.
The diff puts less stress on the cvd's
With a one way when you hit something the wheel is free wheeling and when you hit something it stops instantly. But once I put in the Mugen ones I have not had any problems. And the $34 is 6 bucks less than the retail price that alot of shops try to charge.
They say the front ones are a little longer. I run dog bones in the back and mugen unversals with MTX 3 bones in the front. No problems.

the bones are the same length, mugen has a different PN because of the oring they supply for the front. I never use the oring anyway so front or rear bones fit they are the same length.

Thats what I went to on my Osaka MRX, cvd's are to fragile there.

in the first batch of Mugen CVD, they are of same length plug the front pack has included 2 o-ring for sitting the outdrive. I have checked the latest batch of CVD and the front bones are actually slightly longer.

Hi
How are you guys doin' eh! Has anyone found a way to protect the rear suspension? I broke three left rear susp. arms in the last five race days because I clipped an outside board on the track where I race. The boards are held to one another with metal brackets. They don't protrude that much but when I have the misfortune of clipping one in just the right way, the rear left wheel hooks on them and rips the rear arm off. The front end of the car is no problem because I made a large bumper out off thick Kydex and it protects the front susp. very well. I thought of making some kind of wings, placed in front of the rear wheels to protect the rear susp. but there's not much room on the rear of the chassis to secure them on. Besides telling me to stop hitting the boards, has anyone got any ideas or suggestions.

Fanx

Default Front one-way lock?

Hi Guys,

Is there any way to lock the front one-way?

I noticed a guys 1/8th Slide at the track had a lockable front one-way.

It had two grub screws along the shaft, when tightened down it locked the font one-way, so you now had a solid front.

The owner of the Slide said it made a big difference in the wet.

Any thoughts?

All the best
