Cain,
I ran a stupid fast 10x1 at Planet Rc and that track is VERY high grip and had no outdrive issues.

The only thing I have done for the out drive savers is to put a extremely small dab of ca on the edge of the saver and the outdrive to better hold it in place.
Be careful to not put to much ca on there or you won't be able to get the outdrive saver off when you need to.

Pierre,
try 2 shims on the gear side and 1 on the other.
I run a lot more power than the 5800 has and have had no problems with that shimming.

Hope this helps.
how about a rubber cover then to keep it in place better and also to keep dirt out? i dont like the idea of having to keep gluing the savers to keep them in place and mine are always coming loose. was just an idea, i dont have a clue, i have not even had the chance to break my car yet

If the savers are installed properly, they shouldn't come off. There are little pins in them so if the sleeves start backing out they should stop when they get to the driveshaft pin.

Also, the shimming of the diff isn't really a science. When new I would say start fairly loose, but when the gears break in this might be too loose. So if you hear clicking every now and then open them up and move the diff over a shim. If you make it too tight you should be able to tell. The gearbox will sound crunchy and not be very free. Also, with the motor installed you can take a side (front or back) and spin both tires with a fair amount of force. If you hear any clicking it is too free and you need to tighten the gear. This isn't perfect because you can't apply the same forces the track gives your car on the bench but it is somewhere to start.

Default spares?

what parts do you find yourselves replacing the most? what spares do you carry?

So far I have installed,
ACDVT001 Rear Universal Drive Shaft Set
ACDCPB235 Graphite Upgrade Kit

I also have these but have not installed them, thought I would see how the car handles without them first, so I can see the difference.
ACDRGT011 Shock Set
ACDVXBT004 Shock Set
ACDVPT009 Centre One-Way Cup and Shaft.

Worth replacing the arm mounts? with purple aluminium ones?
can anyone tell me what parts fit the sbv2 from these,
Lunsford parts

Kropy - looks awesome as always!

Apex - here is a pic thanks to oople. http://www.oople.com/rc/photos/acade...ages/sb04.html
You can see the flat side is facing outward. There is a round side and a flat side on the savers. The round should be facing toward the diff gear.

hey guys, www.fastraxxhobbies.com now has online shopping. So there is another source for MRC/Academy kits and parts. If they don't have it in stock they can get it for you!

There are 3 v2's at our track and here are the parts most often replaced...

I myself have broken 2 front C hubs. And I keep stripping the rear outdrive cups.... Otherwise, nothing at all.

The others have broken the front a arms and the front kickup, where the arms attach themselves...

Thats pretty much it.
