    Traxxas CVDs?

    I've been seeing a couple threads for Traxxas CVD kits that are supposedly out for the Slash. I think they're supposed to be like the XO-1 CVDs, just with a Slash stub axle on them. Are they just an RC myth, or are they real and how can I get my hands on a set?

    Thous are the correct part #s. Make sure you do not leave the "R" off the end or you will get the stock shafts.

    http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...-for-slash-4x4

    Read up on them there.

    FYI stormer has them in stock.

    Here is a link for the fronts.

    the stock part number is 6851 and 6852, if you add the R to the end of them then you get the CVD's

    I am wondering how well they hold up myself.
    Let us know when you get them and how you like them.

    They are nothing like the XO-1 axle, if you want the best axle for the Slash 4X4 get the XO-1 axles and do the mods I have outlined in my buildup thread, and never look back. Mine have been on for several months and I have had zero problems with them. The Mod can be done with the stock hubs with the right bearings from Boca Bearings. My son has been through all kinds of problems with MIP, and Techno with his truck. Altho the Techno has been the better of the two, he is looking to do the XO-1 mod next. By far the best axles for this truck!

    It's all choice. I've been running mip's for over 2 year without issues and we beat our rc's every weekend. I'd pick up Teknos or Mip's over the new Traxxas cvd's!

    I just wanted something that I didn't have to mess with much and figured why not give Traxxas CVDs a shot since I never had MIP's or Tekno's to begin with. I should be able to give a unbiased opinion.

    Get them installed and let us know how they work.
    I am ready to pull the trigger, just want a little bit of a review on them first.

    I will get them installed as soon as I can, right now we are in the rainy season in Germany so my bashing time is limited. I also have some aluminum castor blocks and hubs on the way.

    I have not got around to installing them yet. Received another package today and will try and get these on before the weekend to see if I can get some bashing time in. Weather is horrible here in Germany right now. This is what's going on the truck:

    Install was a breeze, build quality looks great. I haven't been able to try them out yet due to weather.

    Looks good.
    I'm interested to see how well they hold up compared to the Teknos and MIPs.

    Awesome. I just had to replace ANOTHER stock axle on my Slash. Almost made me miss the race.

    One broke. With only about 6-7 full packs through it, it freaking broke. For what they cost, it shouldn't have broken. I am NOT happy. Traxxas is going to get a phone call on this one tomorrow. I only run 2s LiPo on the stock Velineon system, so it's not like I overpowered them or anything, I competed in the local carpet races here and went out to do some jumping and finish off the pack before I went home and it broke. No insanely hard, high traction takeoffs or braking or any binding that normally causes axle failure, and it broke. So far Traxxas has stood behind their products for me, and if they don't this time, I'm going to be really crabby.

    that really sucks man, i think thats why i havent broken down and got really expensive axles, cuz they do break also. thats why i just run the stock and don't care if they break cuz they are only a couple of dollars. i feel for ya tho man. i would be calling traxxas also if that were me.

    I called Traxxas and they wont warranty the shaft, because they consider it to be a wear part. Which is kinda understandable. They do sell a rebuild kit for it that's about $15-18, depending on where you look. I started a separate thread on this, I've gone more in depth as to the situation. I'll try to get some pictures and post them there, as well.

    I think it was just some kind of fluke. Anything that sees a constant torque load like that, whether it's factory or aftermarket, is gonna start to wear out. It's just the way things are, but I would expect them to last about a year or so first.
