    Which cvds to buy? Or what else to buy?

    I have $372.8 to spend
    at towerhobbies im getting $178.60 worth of stuff
    then at hobby city im getting $127.29 worth of stuff
    i will have spent $305.89 so ill have $66.91 for goodies
    my set up will be dual vxl, 19t pinon, 2 aero-nuts 3s 5000mah batteries, and everything else stock.
    i thought with all this speed my drive shafts will brake instantly so i figured i would get CVDs
    i hear traxxas's Cvds arent the best?
    here are soem CVDs i found

    Are E-Revos prone to breaking the stock shafts?

    If so , I would like to know before hand and have a set of CVDs in the toolbox ready to go.
    Won my first race in 1985...

    only if your running, something like a vxl, or lipo which gives it more toruqe, when i make the e-revo have a lot of gc, my stub axle broke because, i read somewhere that if the drive shaft is like
    -\_
    thats when there it a lot of gc, and puts more wear on the stubaxles, so you want it to be like

    ---
    straight


    when i put my truck like -\_ i broke 2 stub axles, then i put it like --- then no probs in long time

    I had my Erevo the first weekend they were out,and beeh running brushless ever since,twisted 1 shaft since then.I bought a whole set off Ebay for 10 bucks,imo upgrading is a waste unless you want extreme angles,in which case I would wait for Traxxas new ones to be out.

    Seems to depend on the motor you are running, and particularly your style of driving. With the stock setup I never broke a shaft, but once I upgraded to lipo and twin 700HOs I started breaking them every day...

    Since I upgraded to the steel CVDs, no problems... except that I destroyed one diff - so maybe that just pushed the problem further up the driveline.

    You don't need to go to the lowest ride height - if you are using the adjustable rear A-arms and the steel cvds you can get slightly longer drive cups which work fine (see the accessories page)

    Time is an illusion, "9am sharp" doubly so.
