    You need to screw your pillow balls in further.

    Are they Traxxas CVD's? If I recall they do make deeper cups.

    Yeah they do make deeper cups. Unfortunately the rpm arms are very flexible and can still cause the shafts to pop out occaisionally. Cvds to the wheels are one of those un-necessary revo items I learned about the hard way. They do look cool though

    If running rpm arms you will want the extended drive cups.

    Part #5153R
    While they are made for the adjustable wheelbase arms, they work great for other mods/fixes as well.
