Amain or ask your LHS to order them up for you if they dont have them in stock
Glow plug life Span depends on alot of factors.Standard or turbo heat rating of the plug and the tune of your motor.I'm running turbo plugs p3 p6 i had a p6 last nearly 3/4 a gallon before it needed to be changed.

$4?????

WTF Where do you get your plugs and what plug are you using that is $4.

I use P3 plugs in my OS Engines and my LHS sells them for $9.

Wish they were $4 then I might change mine every race day.

My current P3 has about 1 1/2 Gallons on it. Thats including break in on my VZB and the plug still looks great and hasn't been destorted yet.

As for plugs I have gotten amazing life out of P3's before. I am talking 5 gallons. Not that you should ever wait that long to change the plug, but I did once. And he plug was still glowing bright at the 5 gallon mark(including break-in on my v-spec).

Would the center diff outdrives work in the front and rear diffs?

yes they would, but the centers are actually a gram or so heavier.
