CV driveshafts?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
What's the advantage of using CV driveshafts in my Savage? After shearing the end off one stainless dogbone this weekend, and breaking the pin out of another, I'm wondering if I should upgrade to CV, or just buy a whole whack of spares.

theoretically cv shafts will give better performance due to less friction. However the performance is negligable. If you are a straight up basher save your money and buy a bunch of backup dogbones. If you have the coin and feel you want to do an upgrade go for it. If you plan on racing you can install them also but they obviously cost more$$.

Both have ups and downs... agreeing with ghostface...
My CVD's have been good and bad, they do offer an improvement, but if not maintained, can be just as frustrating as snaping a dogbone

I have thrown pins from my cvd's and they are a pain to try and match parts for. If your bashin, stay with doggies like GF says.. just easier.. just keep some on hand... you have a choice of the black stock ones, or the silver chromed ones that come with the SS.. black are a lot cheaper..

As far as CVD's, I think that MIP or Hotbodeis are your best bet.. I have had great luck with the hotbodies...
