This is a optional Fioroni Ultra Racing Series Option Team Center CVD Silicone Flex Coupler and is intended for use with the Mugen MBX6 and MBX6T vehicles. Often imitated, but never duplicated, Fioroni continues to lead the pack in revolutionary designs and concepts with this unique coupler design. The male end of the coupler contains 3 pins which are wrapped in silicone tubing and the female end of the coupler contains 3 matching holes. When the 2 pieces are joined, the pins slide into the holes and are cushioned by the silicone tubing. This allows for a less violent power transfer, resulting in smoother and more consistent acceleration as well as longer lasting drivetrain components. These couplers are ideal for nitro and even better in brushless applications.

NOTE: These parts replace one center cvd joint coupler. Two sets of couplers will be needed for a complete conversion.

Fioroni Mugen Center CVD Silicone Flex Coupler
Ive been running these in my race buggy MBX6 for 4-5 months now... I've had ZERO issues with them. (I have them on the front and rear. are they worth the extra money??? I'm not too sure, I was expecting a little less wear on my dog bones and the outdrives, but they seemed to wear exactly the same as before I ran them.. they look cool for sure. they do work but just not over the top awesome like I was hoping.)

Fioroni Mugen Center CVD Silicone Flex Coupler
I bought these to run on my MBX6 Eco. Thought it might help cushion the drive train. Worked good for about the first 2 race days. Then the cross pin hole in this part started to wear out really badly. I noticed because the car started making a weird noise in the main on the 2nd race day. When I tool it apart I found the hole for the cross pin in this aluminum part worn really badly. It has 3 sets of holes you can use, but they all wore out in a very short time. This is way to expensive of a piece to wear out so quickly. The one on the rear shaft lasts a bit longer because the angle on the drive shaft isn't a great and it probably puts less stress in this coupler. Besides the wear, I didn't really notice any difference between this and the stock piece as far as different driving characteristics. Neat idea, just didn't really hit the mark.)
