    Very smart and simple. Turtle welds a steel ring around the drive cups for strength. This way the cup cannot split or break. Then by including the HPI heavy duty driveshafts, the axle and cups create a virtually indestructable drivetrain. I only have 3 hours on the new Turtle system, but they have been hard hours without fear of breaking a cup or axle. The Turtle Diff housing support is also installed. Great fit and finish. This setup will ensure a long life for your diff. The only weak link now is to wait for the hardened diff gears to finish the job.

    What happens if you bend a dog bone will one from HPI drop right in without modification?

    They use the HPI heavy duty drive axles. They only add the ring around the cups to keep them from breaking.

    I knew he used the HD DB, I thought though it needed modding to fit..

    I would think that they would need to be moded some. I know with my baja, that the pins stick out past the cups by just a tiny bit. My guess is that you would need to grind off a little of the pins so that they would slide in.

    I think the pins are milled down or you could file them down a little.

    A CVD would be nice. Ive been thinking of trying to adapt a FG ball drive to a Baja. I dont think i could ever get it to work.

    I think the Baja has too much travel for the ball drives to work
