T-maxx Front and Rear Center CVD Steel
 
I ordered the HPI and Revo parts for the rear center steel driveshaft conversion and I would also like to update the front center to stell as well. I have a 4908 model.

Any help or suggestions is appreciated. I was told to stay way from Integy and MIP so What other options do i have to also make it steel?


Thanks

Are you sure about that, This is the 4908 model which is the extended T-maxx. Ikno the rear will not work but im not sure about the front. Iwould just like the front.

thanks

Yes i know about Integy andMIP but i have read nothing but negative things about them. Iwould like to use something other than those 2 companies and oem.

Well i know that Integy and MIP suck. But besides OEM they're many others i don't think

Do you mean thickness of steel rod? If so then yeah they are. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/js/f...wink_smile.gif

RE: T-maxx Front and Rear Center CVD Steel
 
So it is a direct fit and you have the same setup on your T-maxx 4908?

Idon't want to order something and get stuck with it. Do you have a part numbr

RE: T-maxx Front and Rear Center CVD Steel
 
No i have an E-revo Bruxhless. Not a T-maxx.  But the OEM are for a dif model as we went over. Do you know if the these shafts are longer or shorter then yours???

RE: T-maxx Front and Rear Center CVD Steel
 
No i don't thats why i was hoping you would know lol

pyromatic177 06-26-2012 10:01 AM

RE: T-maxx Front and Rear Center CVD Steel
 
Yeah the thing is i (like you) can't find one thing on them. I know how you can get a center back CVD but not front LOL. BTW have you brokon the plastic ones?

jetspeedz 06-26-2012 10:03 AM

RE: T-maxx Front and Rear Center CVD Steel
 
No not yet, i'm anticipating it breaking so i want to replace it before it does.

pyromatic177 06-26-2012 10:05 AM

RE: T-maxx Front and Rear Center CVD Steel
 
Hmmm well I've seen multiple guys with the Picco .26 and they havent broken there plastic center ones. So if you can't find any CVD's then at least the stocks are not too bad
