    Questions about traxxas steel CVDs

    I'd like to upgrade the stock drive shafts (front/rear/center) into steel ones. However, I saw many posts said the rear cvd kept popping out from drive cup and recommended replace the rear cup into extended ones.

    So my question is, has traxxas already fixed this, so that newest traxxas cvd has included the extended drive cup? if not, is it a must-do to get a extended drive cup?

    Thanks

    i think they work perfectly fine. I just bought mine and run it kind of hard a they work fine. And the tires and wheel set up i got is the 40 series set up. So is more weight . I havent had a cvd popping out. And yes they are the TRAXXAS brand

    I think it was the MIP's that everybody was having trouble with. My Traxxas cvd's work fine, no problems.

    I keep it all the way up, but with pretty soft springs.

    I think if you have the summit extended wheelbase rear arms, using the +19mm setting you will need the extended drive cups if using the CVD,s

    I used the trx steel cvds with rpm arms and the extended cups and if I landed wrong or cart wheeled on jumps my cvds would pop loose. I now use the stock rear shafts and the steel front.
    Just my 2 cents

    Thanks for all the information!
    I checked the traxxas guide for cvd. It says cvd is designed for lower two ride hole not for the highest one.
