    They look nice and they're a bit cheaper than the Traxxas CVDs, I believe. I hope they're stronger... I seem to bend CVDs too often. I'd like to make a sort of tool to straighten out the bent ones. Imagine a cylinder cut in half length-wise that could be tighten back together, and that fit tightly around a non-bent CVD. That would totally work to straighten them out and doesn't sound very complicated.

    Thanks for the real world pics Evgen!
    Theres always quite some coherence between the parts i'm eying and the ones you get and picture..

    Keep us posted how they hold up. I have worn down my first set of the Traxxas CVD output cups after one year on 2S and a bit 3S lipo. The 3S really finished them fast. The slot for the dogbone is nearly twice as wide now.

    From my recent experience: NO.
    I had a pair on the front. They started to pop the pillow balls out after about 3/4 to one year. ( I run 1 to 4 times a week).
    They look killer, but for function GPMs are better.
    The HR alloy knuckles have a round design on the side where the pivotball comes out, that hole can wear out.
    GPM (and GH and Integy and the plastic stockers) have a square or pillow-shaped design in that area. This does support the pivots a bit better. One another note i destroyed a GPM carrier too, with a busted bearing that wore in.

    I read about cases where the pins came out and caused quite some damage.

    now that traxxas has some out.... i don't see the point


    as far as the integy goes, i would run them, you just need to make sure you secure that pin somehow, then they are an ok unit
