Those who have an IFS fourby will know what a pain in the butt those rubber boots covering CV joints can be in off road conditions. A cure is at hand - an Aussie by the name of Glenn Thompson has invented the be all to end all CV joints - I just wonder why the fourby manufacturers haven't picked up on it yet.

You watch, another Aussie invention that will go overseas for manufacture & we will pay to import them back. You will probably find they are being evaluated now by component manufactures. If the article is right it shouldn't be long before they start using them. Won't Yota owners be happy.
