View Full Version : MIP CVD's
01-16-2001, 12:01 AM
Guys, I bought some MIP CVD's for my nitro rustler and everything went well for the installation except one thing. The directions called for "standard Traxxas gray plastic shims" which were supposed to be used to space the axel from the wheel so the CVD's would not move back and fourth. My problem is that I have no clue what the gray plastic shims are. If you guys could give me a description and a part number so I can find this part it would be great! Thanks alot for your time guys...

They are referring to the teflon washers. Call customer support at 1(888)TRAXXAS and they can tell you the part number!
Back up till glass breaks, then gun it!

I bought the mip cvds and so did my buddy and we dont like them and we used spacers and they just dont hold up. The holes in the cup area where the little pin goes keeps cracking. If I were you I would take them back and sae you money.

Has anyone had a good experience with MIP CVD'S on the N Rustler?

I have tried the cvd's and I liked the way the throttle responce was enhanced, but I agree that they dont hold up under hard core conditions, I have found that if you keep your stock drive units clean and use a bit of armour all on them they work as well as any of the after market parts. Save your money, buy a pipe or vented flywheel.

prostreetnova, I have been thinking about buying a vented flywheel. Tell me who much power gain do you get from one? I'd like to know...can you notice it off the bat? It'll be my next upgrade if it is worth it! Lemme know guys!
