What metal Knuckle is a direct bolt on?
 
I know someone did a CVD conversion with XR knuckles, but there was a lot of modding to the knuckle to get it on. I thought at one time i had read that the Wraith or some other Axial product was a direct fit, but i could not find that info.

I bought these Hot Racing SCP2101 Steering Knuckles Aluminum Axial SCX10 | eBay they work great, you'll just have to shorten your tie rod

The AX-10 knuckles bolt up with the same bearings used no different than RS-10, only choice is high steer or standard style. I would be curious not owning an ax10 If the cvd would work. Any help on that?

I've owned a few AX/SCX10, I would think the only thing that you might have to mess with is the width. I've never seen the insides of Redcat axles though.

Here is what i would like to use
NEW Integy Dual Joint Telescopic Universal Drive Shaft T8140 | eBay
or a similar product. i have not had time to figure our the dimensions on the wheel end.

These would be a major asset, but the shipping is crazy and I can not get a bulk shipping quote.
5mm - 5mm Universal Joint Steel Steering Flaming River Shaft Collet Coupling | eBay

The dog bones will be the next fail point, i want eliminate them at the same time.

Does anyone have a revo?? the stub shaft of the drive line looks similar for the knuckles and i am curious as to how far off the length is. Less then 60 bucks shipped is not bad for 4 shafts...

New Factory SEALED Traxxas Revo 3 3 Steel CV Drive Shaft Set of 4 5451R | eBay

they have the right ends on them, i am curious to see waht the ball and cup look like ( i assume it is a CV and not a dog bone).

edit: looks pretty long.....

due to the high clearance desgine of the axle, we need either a CV or a dog bone (stock configuration) to allow for the drop from the gear case to the knuckles.

This is a low wear area i guess, considering that there is no movement like there is at the knuckles. maybe a dog would be okay here..

Ultimately, I think the dog bone at the case wouls be just fine. But the original thread you are thinking of was from one of our Portugese forum buddies and was using Bully knuckles with type4 CVDs. I have already started accumulating the parts for it based on his thread.
