They stated it can go up to 55 steering degrees. Dude, a simple search on Google will give you the answer.

Hi Guys,
I'm not hugely familiar with this topic, but out of curiosity I did a search through 'Dogpile' and found a link to DriftMission.com

Not sure if this applies to you marshun, but I thought that it may be worth a read, if you haven't already read it.
As I already said, I honestly know nothing about it, but did find it pretty interesting :)

Marshun, you probably didn't finish reading Overdose post or you missed it out. They said the CVDs are for drifters going for 50+ steering angle but the CVDs can go up to maximum 55 degrees. :D

hmm. i guess so. maybe i ended up skimming or something. im not even sure if i got to that page. but thanks for the link anyway.

i know i read 50+ and i was thinkin "its probably gonna be some bullshit like 51 degrees or something.

but i've ordered a set just to give it a try. 40 bucks! better be worth it. lol

You can trust Overdose. They are my top favorite rc drift parts manufacturer, their products never fail to amaze drifters.

Aren't the Square Wide angle shafts pretty much exactly the same? Don't think prices differ very much either :)

I wouldn't suggest the square ones me and few people I know got them and had issues with them. They all broke within weeks of I stalling them. So be careful with them.

Used them last time for like 3-5months. They are very lasting and it is like the best cvd out there currently. Tried Active Hobby wide angle cvd before, quite crappy and drifters also had problems with AH cvds.

I run them at almost 50 degrees at the moment, no issues, no chatter, nothing ,-|

All the guys I know didn't have chatter either. The problem is the metal breaking or the axle falling apart. For me it was both one from each axle. I have the active and there great no issues and I have wide angle steering done on it too. I thought it was me doing something wrong or just defective one. Then I hear others complaining about the same problems I had.
