I never had an issue loosin them but those casper r/c ones are supposed to be pretty good. I personally like the mip diff screw and their thrust balls and washers, they last forever and I have never broke an MIP diff screw.

MIP puck system worth the money or not? How often do the pucks have to be changed and durability? Also the mod system is for 13.5 and lower. I have a stock and mod b5. is the stock version just for weight because in rm weight is not a issue on my car and to save mone was thinking just used the mod version in both.

My 2 cents having run the Pucks on a mod car for a few weekends of racing.

I've had 2 failures in 3 weeks with the pucks breaking sending the pins flying. Buy plenty of spares. One may say it's a result of something I've done, possibly. It would be something you should check after every run to ensure the pucks are in good shape and the screws are tight. Basically, if you see any kind of wear on the pucks or notice any kind of gap (beyond the small gap that exists naturally) between the pucks and outdrives after a run, replace the pucks immediately.

With that being said, the outdrives provided with the pucks setup are excellent. It builds a really smooth, reliable ball diff. There is no clunkiness to the diff after a race day, and the outdrives appear to be very flat and well manufactured where you apply the rings. This is the primary reason I keep the pucks system in my mod car. Despite the issues with reliability, I find the diff stays consistent for multiple weeks.

Overall, I like the setup... it just requires more attention during your prep/tune/rebuild sessions.

Always remember to use MIP grease on the pucks so they move freely in the outdrives. This will make them last a lot longer.

I would not recommend using the B5M 17.5 puck system in a mod setup. The driveshafts are aluminum. But, if you are looking for a super lightweight efficient drivetrain for stock racing, go for it.

Default Wheels

What is the general consensus on wheels? I currently run Proline all around, I like their flush with the wheel nut design, but I noticed the other day that the Proline front wheels are the same width as DE 4wd fronts?! I know JC are popular, but is there really any difference between wheels? Anyone run Avids?

I've been running the Green DE wheels. I'm slowly going to switch to JConcepts. The DE wheels are cracking on me and with the matte finish the plastic doesn't clean well.

Jc wheels have a matte finish also and are a pain to keep clean

Switched to the inline setup for club racing today. So far I like it.

Did anyone notice this picture of Craig Drescher's car? Thoughts on the transmission?
