Noone makes a set of CVAs or CVDs for the 4tec. Its possible to retrofit a set for the HPI RS4 if you buy alot of diff parts for the RS4. Do a search for that, someone posted good instuctions a while ago.
But what do you have against the stock axles? Drive axles dont get much better than the stock traxxas ones if you keep the metal yokes aligned straight.

i have a 4-tec and an rs4 pro and pro 2 and when i broke my front left driveshaft in the 4-tec and the bank account was in the negatives and since the other two cars were.. cough....cough..... not functioning from an infortunate mishap with a 4 foot tall ramp on a roof i got to work firs i took the diffs off of the pro then the universals and so on then i figured if it would all work if you put the universals in the 4 tec hub carrers and steering knuckles they stick out too far because the bearings are closer together so i had to move the hubs and steering knuckles from the pro over to the tec and put it all together now there was the little issue of the incompatability between the dogbone end of the pro universal and the slider that attaches to the diff i solved this but repacing the diff with the ones from the pro this represented another group of problem because the outrivers from the pro diffs were way too small to fit in the little bearing that the slider part went into the diff this was remedied but replacing the front bearing or bushing and its holder thing with the bearings from the pro bulkheads it was a nice fit but because the tec bulkhead is open at the top the bearing stuck out a little bit but that was okay then in the back i just took out the bearing and its holder and installed the bearings from the pro bulkhead which fit fine then i needed to use the axle roll pins and hex hubs from the pro because the tec roll pins are too bid and the tec hexes are too small to fit around the pro universal axle i probably mised some stuff in there but if you have any more questions just ask the car performed about the same i really couldnt tell any difference it just looked cooler butt i just swiched everythign back as soon as i got the parts but i really would not suggest this conversion because the cost would be over 100 bux the traxxas sliders always worked fine for me until i broke one but that was the only time and it was only a 5 dollar replacement pard i think you are better off sticking with the sliders they work just as good
