Hey all I have some V1 body templates that you can use. Similar in design as the V2 body so if you need some just shoot me an email.

As for the diff spring, if you have a V1, try the B4 diff spring, it gives more diff action as it doesn't bottom out as soon. Didn't have really an issue on the V2 with the diff spring.

I am excited about it myself. It will be tough, but things are looking up.

I am hoping Academy or somebody aftermarket makes a set of outdrive savers for the V2. That would be a hot upgrade and save weight over all steel units.

Cain - what do you mean outdrive savers? There are included plastic rings that cover the outdrives arlready. Do you mean aluminum ones?

yes. I would like to see aluminum ones made either through MRC / Academy or Someone doing it aftermarket. That would be a nice upgrade.

Apexs: The whole idea of having an aluminum/plastic outdrive saver is so that when the outdirve itself is under load that it doesnt expand and shatter. The sleeve that slips over this assembly stops this from happening.

Hope this helps.

Has anyone broken an outdrive with the standard plastic savers on?

I personally like the added assurance feeling of having alloy savers, but honestly never had an issue.
