VP's won't work with CVD's, not currently. It's built on the Axial design which causes turning problems for both the stock Axle Stub or the soon to be released CVD's.

I'd build you CVD's to work on stock and CKRC's. VP I'm told is working on a Berg only unit.

Do the CKRC knuckles use the stock berg stub?

I run stock knuckles. I see no reason to switch. The give me full turn lock to lock and don't hang up on my wheels or tires.

I have all the knuckles VP's,Axials,stock, and CKRC and I am running the CKRC after I tried them all. The reason is I am running CDWs 20* BTA steering and its made for VP but it won't turn as sharp unless you grind your stubs. I also preordered my super 300 cvds and it won't work with VP. So finally I modified the steering for CKRC which now my steering is AWESOME! (it turns extremely sharp ) And it will work with the new cvds.

Only the stock berg (of course) and CKRCs berg specific knuckles will work fine and turn extremely sharp (also work with the super 300 cvds). Now the VPs and Axials will work fine but if you want sharper turning you will have to grind the stubs down a little (there is threads on here about it) so that it will turn more before it hits the axle. Also I am running the CKRC knuckles/Axial stubs

Modified stockers, cut the arms off and made new ones.

VP with cut-down Axial stubs. I use the inner/shorted hole on the arm and to date (with my BTA set-up) have not had to grind the end of the arm (2nd hole) off.

Zero Ackerman VP's are going to be where it's at

Tolerances look pretty tight in their pictures though. Hopefully they'll clear the Berg offset.
