    Any problems running tra steel cvds and rpm arms?

    I saw a revo post saying you may bend a driveshaft when using rpm arms and traxxas steel cvds. Is this true?

    Seems like you might twist them with a high output brushless system before you bent them bashing.

    But I guess with the softer RPM arms, if you went beyond the designed range of articulation for the cup and bog bone you could bend a metal axle.

    Maybe its more a revo thing, or just a rare kinda thing thar just one person posted about. Ive seen most others that have the steel cvds also have rpm arms, and they dont seem to have a problem.

    I run Traxxas steel cvds on my ERBE with RPM a arms. So far they've done great. I'm running the same on my EMBE, but it has FLM arms.
