i dont want cvds i want your regular dog bone.
CVD's are crazy you have to put grase in the joint all the time?
That the only reason why i wont get them...

There are two types of dogbones:
1.) A chunk of hardened raw hide for dogs (the animals) to chew on, and strengthen their teeth.
2.) A Harded piece of metal that resembles the shape of a dog bone. The CVD is a dogbone.
Hope this helps, Good day, Greg

What is a Bearing, do the make the truck float, or is it a GPS thing for your computer, so you can tell what your bearing is?

ok, now that thats cleared up, i will tell you that no, there is no dogbone set for the rustler. the included telescoping universals work better than dogbones. dogbones are terrible, my experience with my rs4 mt tells me that. they bend and fall out

Any dogbone, or CVD set you buy will be the same. CVD is MIP's version. It means Constant Velocity Drives. They are "famous" because they are very strong and come in kits for the most popular trucks, like the rustler. The only difference between a standart, company X dogbone and a CVD is that the dogbones require two drive cups; one on thewheel, and one connected to the tranny. The CVD's eliminate the need for the second one, one the wheel, by usung a cup, and cross pin (like the one in rustler's wheels). If you really want a metal shaft drive, then you should want an MIP CVD set.
Hope this helps,
Good Day, Greg
