    Aftermarket CVD's? MIP X-duty's or Tekno's? Other? Legal forum? non-Traxxas advice?

    I've had to change rear CVD's on my 3 week old 4x4 Ultimate twice, and it's getting old fast.

    I got one recomendation for MIP X-Duty replacements, and I'm ready to buy some for the rear, then someone mentioned Tekno's...

    MIP's or Tekno's?
    Other?
    Advice?

    Also, is it legal to discuss non-Traxxas replacement parts here? Should I be doing this on another forum?
    Advice on another forum for non-Traxxas issues?

    Teknos require you use their carriers (and alu hexes if you run extremely powerful systems.) Pins are captured by bearings, so there is no grub screw loss to worry about except at the diff output shafts. They are physically much smaller than MIPs and the actual axles seem to break far less.

    MIPs will not disengage (slip out), may allow more suspension range, will likely chatter less, have extremely strong driveshafts and let you look like you have installed a set or two of Victorian cast iron lamp posts on your truck.

    Haven't had a problem with them, other than the pins falling out (then I bought thread locker, zero problems afterward)

    +1 on mip x-duty run mainly 3s and some 4. Definitely use loc tite or you'll loose pins QUICKLY.
    Have tekno on sons rig, still sturdy but for slash with extreme power go mip hands down.

    I think I'll pass the deal. The guy wants $75 for four, but with a missing stub shaft.
    I don't have the warm and fuzzy on this one...
