    Rustler CVDs - which?

    So there goes my another upgrade - rear CVDs for my Rustler VXL. Which one will be the best choice? I suppose MIP, but is it worth its price, or maybe "Hard steel" or Hot Racing will do the job?

    1. Hot Racing $50
    2. MIP X-Duty1 $60
    3. No name (Hard Steel) $33

    Prices with delivery through half of the world...
    Or maybe there's a better alternative?

    My only experience with mip cvds was very poor. They lasted about 2 minutes and one of them basically exploded. (this was in a slash, vxl with 8.4 nimh)

    +1. MIPS all the way dude. I have (8) pair from them. Have been flawless. If you decide on MIP just remember clean all threads before applying locktite. If the packaging coat of grease isint removed from the grub screws then they probably will explode lol. Good luck.

    Were those the x-duty cvd's? I've never tried them, but your story sounds very similar to mine and many other's who used the standard MIP cvd's.

    If you get the x-duty shafts, use RED locktite. I used blue and lost 2 shafts in grass. Learned my lesson and used red. Didnt come apart again

    I can't remember which they were, unfortunately. It was a couple years ago.
