On my T4 and RB5 I use a tricked learned from a Losi Driver.
1. On the side of the cvd with the 2 pins that go into the outdrive, mate the the the cvd and outdrive together. Best done outside the car because you will need a dremmel for step 2.
2. Once you have them together, take a dremmel and take off the parts of the pins that extend outside the outdrive slots. One done, the pins should be close to flush. I have not had my cvd pop out after doing this and for some reason it seems to double the life of the outdrives. If you don't feel comfortable taking the pins to flush level with the outdrive surface, leave a little bit of the pin sticking out past the outdrive surface.
