    I have RPM arms and Traxxas alum carriers they went it easy as pie, just be carefull on using the shims that are stock in the rear. I just used the one thick one between the axle and the carrier on the inside. MIP stuff is great and the customer service is great, ask for Branden if you have any problems.

    anybody with flm cvds have issues with the retaining ring? like the pin is too long so the ring splits apart? it doesnt look like its gonna hold the pin in place. and im not sure the groove for it is deep enough for a o-ring to stay in place.

    I used a Dremmel with a thin grinding disk to cut a slight groove in the middle of the pin so the rings will stay centered...
