I thought one of the major benefits to the "Puck System" is that you never have to replace dog bones or out drives again?

I must say I am really disappointed in MIP so far I have bent a dog bone and my out drives are now shot. I have invested probably $160 in this puck system now and I dont know that the benefits really outweigh the cost.

Do I need to replace the pucks after every race???
Nobody has ever said or implied that running the pucks means you will NEVER have to replace your outdrives. But 10 to 20 packs? Something isn't right. I have about 4 months of driving on my pucks, around 10 packs a week (newborn only lets me get to the track once a week these days), and my original pucks and outdrives still look like 95% good.

Make sure you clean and reoil them often. If you are running them dry, and maybe run somewhere with a lot of dust... you might get some premature wear. They have to be kept clean. I clean and oil my pucks/outdrives before the race day starts, and once again before the main.

Ok sorry they say "Less overall wear on drive components" but that is deff not the case for me I got over 6 months of use out of my OEM dog bones and out drives running an 8.5 motor (which if I was running stock they would prob STILL be good a year later) and I regrease mine every time I replace them which again is every 10 or so packs which I run 2-4 times a week so it could be every 2 times at the track. So I need to regrease them every other run or so?

It is an aftermarket part. Not an Ad. I often post product announcements from RedRC.

No, I do not sell these. I always post parts that have to do with the B5m on this thread for informational purposes.

No idea. Click on the facebook link on the post.

Yes, I know. I am not selling anything (unlike you). Certain parts show up on facebook waaay before they do here. I am simply spreading the information.

edit: I can see how you thought I was selling the item, but do notice that I "quoted" the text. That explains your confusion. Also, you WERE trying to push your parts on here.

You should take that up with MattM or one of the mods. You obviously were trying to sell your stuff, based on your post history.

Sure. Let's hear what they have to say! They can let me know if they have an issue with me posting about parts that are relevant to the B5m.

He can post this here because its his forum and those are not his parts. He posts all aftermarket pieces for the B5M on here (from major companies)

I don't understand the stock class - let's spend more $$ to be the fastest guy at being slow...

You don't understand it, which is fine.

Driving ability in 17.5 reigns supreme for most. A fast motor is just a nice thing to have. If you hit pipes a ton, it won't matter what motor you have.

Pretty much same with modified. Except you dont have to spend an extra $200 to get all the super trick lightweight parts to be competitive

I use light bearing oil. Just a drop that i spread around, and make sure to dab off excess.

I woudlnt' think so. I clean, wipe down, and re-oil both the puck and the inside of the outdrive twice per race day, and I think that might be excessive. I would think once every 4 or 5 packs would be plenty.. again, depending on how dirty your car gets from your track. Our cars say super clean.

On Cavs set up, I think rm arms, what is the best way to measure toe. I usually just eye it but to get 1/4 * what is the best way to do that ?
