    cvd recommendations?

    blew out my factory diffs (go figure) looking for cvd recommendations. this company says the traxxas cvds will work. but are they worth it? or another suggestions for cvds?

    If your putting in UE diff's why not try their CVD's, I'm not sure about Traxxas compatability with the UE drive cups but if they say they fit then they must.

    Save yourself a lot of money, hassle, and get the job done by getting the Traxxas CV's for your trucks drive shafts and axles, and replace your diff pinion bearings with oil bushings.

    will that handle 6s? the stock diffs died without even draining the batteries all the way down on 4s

    Oh yeah, that's all I run is 6s. For me, 4s isn't an option...to wimpy for my insatiable lust for power. (lol)

    now someone on another page brought up the fact that I'm running proline trenches x tires as to why my diffs failed. is there any truth to that?

    If you're running a stock Emaxx on 6s, it doesn't matter if you run stock tires, Trenchers, or what have you, your diffs are going to get their butt kicked. The trick is to change the diff pinion bearings over to bushings, repack all your diff bearings with marine grade grease, and shim the space between your diff's drive cup and the outside of its' outside bushing (4 to 6mm) to keep the diff's pinion gear in place (rather than having a floating pinion setup).

    I run Proline Trenchers (among others) in my 6s Emaxx, all without diff problems. Others have done these few same tricks as me, and (so far) all the guys that have, have had the same good luck with their diff's as I have.
