    Platinum and cvds

    Is there any reason the traxxas cvds for the revo 3.3 would not work on the platinum ?

    They will, but you need the extended drive cups if you're using the extended wheelbase arms.

    How would you know if you have those arms? I asume my Platinum is original but...not sure as the tranny doesn't have a center diff it has RR steel gears.I also had to buy the sway bars..... So this could be standard 3.3 with the platinum chassis,althow it did have the 17mm hubs and body and wing. Any way to tell for sure?

    Ok I looked at my arms,They have 2 locations for the pillow balls. I'm asuming the rear holes are for extended? so is the 5351R the cups I need? and just the rear no need to put them in the front?

    Extended wheelbase susp. arms have two holes, the first adds 10mm to the length of your truck and the second ones add 19mm over the original length.

    The extended cups are needed for the rear. Some other Platinum items are Center Diff (as you mentioned) and close ratio gear set. Anodized shocks with the variable damping kit, low profile battery/receiver box, open throttle box mount, sway bars, newer knuckles with retainer rings, 150cc gas tank, spring mount header with Dual Chamber chrome Resonator pipe, Red Aluminum Toe Links and a Mind Blowing Ballistic 3.3 motor
