Like somebody else mentioned, its probably time to look at the other half of the tranny's moving parts. Bearings, diff/thrust balls, and top shaft unless using it in mod. Then it might become a wear issue.

Amy particular reason you don't want to use pucks? Reason I'm asking is I just had a set delivered to me yesterday. Hope I made the right decision.

The only drawback I have seen from them is they don't like dusty conditions at ALL. I switch back to the standard outdrives when I got outside around here.

I purchased a roller with pucks as well. Can just slip in the standard dogbone outdrives?

Yup, the standard diff and dogbones will drop right in

By moving the rear hubs forward it has more weight hanging off the rear end. Which in turns increases rear traction. But where you gain somewhere you lose somewhere else. So hubs forward more rear traction and you sacrifice steering.

Did you lengthen your rear camber links, or move your rear hubs?

I have not moved my hub yet. But i will try next time.
I have stock rear plastic hub that has 2 holes (inside and outside); i had inside hole and moved to outside. After i moved to outside; spins even more.

For more stability you want the link shorter, keep in mind your shock spring piston oil setup needs to be in the ball park based on track conditions. Inside hole on the camber link(shock tower) try the inside hole on the hub with the 3 hole insert. Tires 85 to 90% of battle.

I don't want to use pucks because, well I really don't have a good reason, lol. I keep searching for a rationalization but I just want to win without them so other racers will not think they are a prerequisite to have a fast car.

The pucks system remove 4 grams per bone and 16 gram on outdrives for total of 24 grams. This in using Exotek spur and eliminator make for a killer drivetrain

The cut gears are also worth it as well ...imo

Does require different setup than stock bones. Car will rotate harder on power
