    Need Advice on Upgrades :)

    I'm looking to upgrade my Pede and noticed alot op people talking about the MIP CVDs, but have see a few pictures where they had rubbed on the carriers. I was looking at the Integy T8559 CVDs and was wondering if anybody had these and what they thought about them???

    I also noticed alot of people saying that the aluminum A-arms bend, but I seen some that looked pretty strong compared to others and wondered what you guys thought??? GPM also has some nive looking CVDs

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Also have the traxxas EZ Peak Plus charger and have a 6400mah Lipo, was wanting to break it in with the charger by discharging and recharging it. How low should it be discharged before charging again?

    My Mip X-Duty shafts have never rubbed! If they did, it wouldn't take long before the aluminum quit rubbing.

    I second this list. It's exactly what you need. I would avoid the aluminum arms.
    I have 2 sets of MIP CVD's. I found they rubbed on the aluminum rear carriers but not on RPM carriers so for $10 I put RPM carriers on rather than dremel the aluminum ones. Put the money you'd spend on aluminum arms into upgrades shocks or other upgrades.

    for the most part stay far away from gpm, integy and hot racing
    stick with mip or tekno for shafts
    rpm arms are way better than stock or aluminum

    I have the MIP's, Integy alum carriers and a-arms. MIP's don't rub unless I use the lower mount on the rear carriers. As far as strength, my Integy pieces have held up nicely to my bashing...no bends or breaks...but then I use common sense when bashing and don't try to jump over large objects like houses. I've had it at a local skate park and has taken some pretty hard hits from mis-calculations still no bending or breaks. It was enough to dismount my esc though...stripped the screw from my chassis. Nothing a little epoxy and re-drilling the hole couldn't fix.
