CVDs dun bend more than 45deg and the VDF reaches about that; worse if you use crazy camber.

I run mine dry for a short while to wear them in before stripping to lube.

Ppl also go for the SpecR double-jointed CVDs but they aren't as heavy duty & needs some cutting to work.

CVD's ans Uni's suck(depends on what uni's you have at what lock). Best is to get the SpecR Double's. Thought you need TRF416 knuckles for it though. You could also bring your lock down.

I got the SpecR double-jointed CVDs for the trf and it's a drastic improvement.. My steering mod is a little over 45° so the single unis just suck. Didn't need to drill anything or cut stuff - just took them out of the box, put them in and they worked - see some of my pics in my setup thread. No more noises, no wobble, drives smooth and stable :)
