I'm not sure bro. Wondering if Kaiguy or someone else on the forum already did this mod??? It's been done with good results, just can't recall who posted about it. Think they went custom using 2 different brands to get the lengths right. I'll try and find it for you.
I seen that in the past but I thought it was for the Typhon? I will look again
My setup is still going.I had to make shafts for the center diff so i could use the cvd drives instead of the dog bone drive.I used 450 helicopter rotor shafts since they are hardened and already have pin holes drilled..Kaiguy...at one time would run the CVD's from the front also in the rear of his Kraton. He did some sort of custom center driveshaft setup also. If you look at more expensive racing RC's.....you will see the rear has a CVD also and not just a dog bone on the 4 outer driveshafts. I guess there is less resistance and vibration from a CVD. Also...the drive shafts out of high end race truggies and buggies always seem to have way less run out than a RTR rc. It would be nice if Arrma made a Kraton in a premium version as a slider kit. It would be one expensive basher by the time it's finished.
Kaiguy also may have fitted the Durango outdrive cups into his diffs. The more premium race kits seem to have lighter parts, however....they are case hardened etc. The parts may be lighter but they are way stronger and more precision cut. Also more $$$ sometimes.
Dang I wanted the center drivesView attachment 11368 View attachment 11369 View attachment 11370 View attachment 11371 View attachment 11372 View attachment 11373 View attachment 11374 Guys...took some picks of the drive shafts as a comparison. The Durango Dex8t front and rear drive shafts are interchangeable with the Kraton but with one restriction. The original offset17mm Hex drives on the Kraton cannot be used ... See pic
Also the centre different drive shafts are a different length and are not practical IMO...
Yes, thank you it saved me some money. I was about to order them just to see if it worked.Ok..so the front shaft is way too short and the rear shaft from the centre different is about 20mm shorter as shown in my last pic on the original post...Also as mentioned in this post you would need to manufacture a drive shaft to suit the centre diff CVD as it is of a different attachment... I hope this is of some assistance.
