Last week I gave my initial impressions of the MIP Race Duty CVD’s for the Traxxas Slash 4×4. This week I want to share my thoughts on the MIP Traxxas Slash 4×4 17mm Hex Adapter Kit. The kit will allow you fit standard 1/8th Scale Wheels on the Traxxas Slash 4×4 and it is made from 7075-T6 aluminum. Along with the Hex Adapters you also get 2 Crush Bearings which go inside the Rear Bearing Carrier in between the two bearings. These same Crush Bearings are also included with the MIP Race Duty CVD’s. Set up was easy taking less than 5 minutes per side, instructions can be found HERE. The thing that really stands out for me with this kit is the 2.5mm Grub Screws, they really allow you to tighten down the adapters. Overall I am very happy with the adapters and after I get some more runtime I will follow up. The adapters can be found for around $25-$30 depending on where you shop.
***Update Feb 11, 2014. I have put about 10 battery packs through these CVD’s and they are holding up great.***
