The BK bones are cool, but just like Matt Francis told me, they are just like running a new outdrive.

The black belt is worth the cash, but I am already experiencing skipping with it if it isn't tight. That is with every other tooth cut off though, so the standard belt may not have that problem.

Exactly what Randy said, I think they only make my outdrives last a few more runs before they start digging into them again. As long as you keep the gouges(sp?) off of the outdrives by filing them flat each run the regular losi bones should be fine. They are just another bling part on the car that adds more bling than performance.

So I just have to buy 10 or so Kevlars....he, he...And a sound gun!

Actually, mine is moderately noisy; but, I see (hear) your point about listening to the motor whine...Sweet!

If your BK bones are still digging into the outdrive, something may be wrong, I've run mine since day 1 with the car and still no signs of wear at all. Actually I've gotta get some more bearings, because my CVD's are worn out and need to be replaced.

I think matts bones are wear a tad bit also. ??? dunno, maybe i need to machine the bearings in on the pin more. i've only ran one set so far, but maybe its just me seeing things.

I didn't mill down the CVD to make the bearing sit flush with the outdrive, so I dont think that's the problem. My tolerances are very tight with very little slop though. I actually mill it tight and then take a file and make it perfect.

ok, i think its just my tolerances on the outdrive itself. I'll machine the outdrive tighter and file it to fit perfectly.

It'll be worth a shot, I have about .002 slop on the outdrives, so there really isnt much at all.

I'd go 26/128, if it tops out too early, then go 27/128.
