The CVD's will be fine, I have run a solid front axle for along time on the shorter tracks and have not yet had a Mugen CVD fail me. This setup is nice because you no longer need to swap out the diff's anymore, just slide the sleeve over, insert the pins and slide it back and now you have a solid axle.

I purchased various sets of Nitro Shoe 2 degree offset tires for my MTX-3. When I tried them the car was too wide. Even locking the hub carrier to the arm I could not get the required 200 mm.

I thought the Fast tires on Mugen rims are also 2 degree offset...Am I wrong? Why is the car so different in width when using these two brands?
Thanks for your input.

I will have to sell these tires. Which car uses 2 offset?
Thanks

I hear it comes from Kawahara but I've been unable to find it. I want one too. Also the rear mount. Manti?
