Are Rear CVD's Needed

I'm thinking about building another MF. Are rear CVD's necessary??
I say no
Reasoning is with the rear locked out the ball end and cup stay in better contact, the pins staying deep in the cup. You can also run buggy rear stub axles that have the smaller cup making it stronger too. Front cups need to be more ''open' to allow for the steering angles the shaft/stubs endure. Large cups like for the front tend to be weaker, looser and therefore more likely to fail than tighter fit parts.
