    Yup, it uses the stock sized inner bearing with a 16mm OD outer bearing.

    Yep, the outer bearing would need to be 6x16x5mm and you then need to use 6mm ID shims between the outer carrier bearing and the wheel hex to remove the in/out play of the cvd.
    No slipper/tall gearing/power = broken parts.

    I run the Tekno on my Emaxx and they have been great. Watch this video and tell me if you think they will hold up. This is me crashing my truck and it cartwheeling a few times. I have had them on for over a year now and all I do is bash the truck and not a single issue

    Watch this video and fast forward to 1:15 where I catch a tree with the front passenger side tire. Any other knuckle and it would have pulled the pillow ball out of the knuckle.

    Forgot to mention, when I first built this truck I had RPM knuckles. I pulled a pillow ball out of one of them the very first run.
