Latest update:
CVDs will start shipping on Sept. 15th with straight axles a couple days later. The ball difs will be a couple extra weeks to add a few last minute changes. These will help in setup and adjustment. Shipping date TBA soon.

Optional wheel bolts for use with wheel wideners:
SP-MF-25 (5x25mm bolt kit set of 4) $4.00
SP-MF-30 (5x30mm bolt kit set of 4) $4.00

These are serated flanged head hex bolts.

These are some of the coolest Clod parts I've ever seen come along from anyone in a while. Very nice. I have a set of the adjustable ball diffs on order from RC4WD.com. I would have ordered direct, but one of the other items I wanted from RC4WD was not available, so I asked to substitute some differientials.

Hey Brad,

I just got the Stright axles and CVDs and they are AWESOME!!! :D

I'm using them in a puller project of mine and I was wondering if you could tell me your best guess of how much weight these axles can take. I have JPS cases and axle tubes and steel gears.

I'd rather get a ballpark guess than hear the crack of the axles telling me what it really is. :wink:

Thanks!
Your journey of over a thousand dollars begins with just one Clod.

Clod...why can't I quit you?!?

Can't say for sure yet. I haven't had time to convert one of my pullers over to them yet to truely test the limits. Although we have used a set of front CVD axles in a 4wd stratch built truck and they work great.
I would say on dirt they will hold up to anything you can dish out. On carpet the CVD's in the front should hold up to any weight, the rear straight axles, I would say they should hold up over 300+ lbs. (dragging sled weight) This is only going by past experiance in building Clod pullers.

They are in production as we speak. If all goes well we should get them from MIP in the next few days. (we should be alble to ship backorders by 4/10/06) A few minor changes are being implimented as well. A couple extra degrees of movement have been added, and a change to the mounting bolt threads from 5mm to 10-32. The thread change was so we could use a better selection of serated flanged head bolts. This will aid in keeping the bolts tight durring use. The splines have now been added as well, so they can be used on the TXT-1 and Jug trucks also.

Will these work with Inet Alloy Knuckle Arms, does the straight axle require a lockout for support, and are there rebuild kits for the cvd joints?

Thanks

They should work fine with the Inet parts.

Straight axles do not require a rear lockout to be installed, but one can be used if you like.

Rebuild kits are available.
