The shock bladders are great. I bought them like 5 months ago and the only time i rebuilt them was when i had to change the oil weight. They are just as smooth as my tamiya shocks that i have to rebuild at least once a month. My suggestion is that instead of using foam between the bladder and cap, just make a small hole in the plastic shock end and dont put any foams. This factors out the need to match the rebound between shock pairs.

As you said before, the plastic outdrives are not worth anything. I upgraded to the lightened steel out drives from AE. The reason I chose the lightened steel over the aftermarket aluminum outdrives is the last longer and are a lot smoother. So yes the outdrives are a little heavier but the will last you a lot longer, and best of all will be a lot smoother.

If you can it's really worth getting the Square RC delrin ones (Japanese company, but I'm sure you'll be able to get hold of some in the US if I can in the UK). They're so much lighter than the AE steel ones and easily strong enough for 19t. No more problems with front CVD's popping out either.

"Apex" The only dealer that has the Delrin Outdrives that I know of in the states is Speed Tech RC. Check this link out, http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=339&id=1033 , this is the link fo the black delrin outdrives. I hope this helps. Oh an also check out the aftermarket section, there are alot of other cool hard to find that stuff that usually has to be ordered from overseas.

yea i run them and they are great, and really smooth, and if you run them all around around they give the car a more fluent roll, like it rolls further
