    Did you use hpi pins or the included set screws to attach these to the diff outdrives? these HPI86094 work a 1000x better than the set screws. they go through the out drive like the standard drive shaft pin does, these are the perfect fit for the mip xduty cvd's.

    I use those through pins but the axle shakes so much it makes the bearing inner hole open up and I get a severe wobble and I'm not the only one

    I have had the same thing happen. For me I got some thread locker on moving parts. I took it apart and cleaned it. Make sire you don't use too much loctite so you dont lock moving parts up.

    slash im going all stock for next week. diff cup, axles, everything. I think we just put these trucks through to much in one day. 8 straight ours is too much without a teardown even though we blow them off with every pack. Steve's axles help up fine with the 2400 for the day. Oh yea I got a video of saturday loading to youtube ill post it here later.

    You would have to find a way to modify the diff cup to accept bearings, I wish someone would make an aluminum diff cup that accepted bearings, metal on metal or metal on plastic without a bearing seams silly.
