I already have the traxxas aluminum hub carriers and am currently saving up for the MIP CVD's.When I watched jang's video below, towards the end, he said that there would be some rubbing between the CVD's and aluminum hub carriers. He said a way to fix this problem is to dremel or file down the aluminum hub carrier to create some free space. I was thinking of doing it the other way round, which is dremeling or filing down the CVD instead since it's thicker than the aluminum hub. What do you guys think?
Anybody running the aluminum hub carriers with MIP CVD's? What did you guys do to address the rubbing problem?
Here's the video:
The rubbing is very minor, I don't even worry about. Run em....
Mine rubbed slightly. They wear a groove. No worries with them

I shaved out the aluminum with a razor knife to give clearance. Put carrier in a vice unless you like getting stitches. Not really needed I would say.
Mine rubbed but didn't bind. Seem to have worn in now and no big deal.
I'd just shave enough off the carriers so that there wasnt any rubbing. Like noted I put mine in a vise and took a little bit off at a time with a blade, then I sanded it to be buttery smooth.
I'm just not sure i'd take anything off the MIP's, that could possibly weaken them.
Mine rubbed a little on my slash but it wore in in just a couple of runs so no dremeling was needed. On my stampede they never rubbed at all so I guess I got lucky. My advice is that it's would be easier and cheaper to dremel the carrier than the mip. The mip is thicker and you would see the dremeling where as the carrier you would not
Thanks for all the input guys!
My plan was to leave it all alone and let them get worn in.
