the best cv joint would be aceplots design, or using the ball and link set.

Will your joints bend or are they solid?

well it is kind of impossible to make a cv out of knex that will be small and compact.

see like one end connects to the wheel and one end to the differential. i made a huge dune buggy using this dog bone design. dont mean to get off subject, but i made a two speed automatic transmission. here is a pic, of the buggy, it is a little out dated, because the pic you understood is my latest and greatest one.

simplified?! are you crazy! this is very simple. i found a way to keep this together. add either tan gear clips or a grey one slot connector to the ends of the white rods, this will lock the dome to the cup.

You can use rubber-tube of the right diameter, if you can find it. So long as you don't try to transmit too much power and you keep the tube sections short.
