    I installed a 17 tooth pinion gear and drove a little to fast causing the tires to balloon and go out of control. I broken the bulk head and another steering component.

    Sounds like you had a blast though.
    I finalized the installation of my tower to tower brace and installed 2 headlights on my Kraton today.

    We're going to be doing some testing to better understand if you can convert the rear of both a Kraton and Talion to CVD. According to the measurements we have found, it looks as though you can use the front CVD from the Kraton/Talion and fit it into the rear. I'm unsure of the hub carriers, but we'll see.

    Cool, i would be interested to find out......i've thought about whether a front set of CVD's would fit in the back of my Talion...

    I'll give it a try this weekend. I had an "oops" at about 40mph with a cement wall, and need to make sure my bearings are still intact.

    Looking up the part numbers, things look like they could be a direct fit, and some of the Kraton/Talion part numbers match up in the CVD. I'm tentatively excited!

    I Flex sealed my Kraton body along with my son’s OC. I also fixed the steering in my Kraton.

    Flex Seal, it works great. I also made my own bumper out of Kydex.

    Hi mate, thanks for the update on materials, we cant get Flex Seal in the UK only in the States, so I might have to go for a cheaper brand that does the same thing. We can get Kydex and if I can’t fit the RPM bumper on the V3 somehow I’ll go for the Kydex and fashion one as you have, also have you fitted bearings to the steering linkage to replace the metal bushings? I’m just wondering on sizes dor them?
    Many thanks for the update :)
