    hollow cvd's?

    I know that in 1:1 applications a gunbarreled or hollow axle in a rearend increases durability by 30-40% and takes some shockload off the differential. Would the same apply to rc? Has anyone ever tried it?

    Hollow axle? I've not seen such a beast. Driveshafts OK, but not at the axle...

    I know Strange, Moser, and Mark Williams all make them for high hp drag cars.

    I doubt you would ever see that in an RC application. A 1:1 axle is supported... any deflection in the tube of the axle shaft and I can imagine it would just twist itself apart. The CVD's on any RC see a lot more force than just torque from rotational input... they flex up and down and even side to side during impacts.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
