DE also has a nice looking flor wheel....not a big fan of the outer circles. As they tend to get dirt inside of them and its hard to get it out.

Default Outdrives

Has anyone been experiencing extreme wear on their outdrive cups? I have only been running my buggy for a couple months and the cups were so worn, I have never seen any so bad my friend had the same thing happen to his and neither of us are running big motors..... Dog bones had normal wear, just cups were bad.

Mine are still good, and I probably have 30+ packs on them, IMO they are wearing better than other brands I have owned..

Its a great car, way better than the 22 I was running, but I could never get that car to feel right.
I raced this weekend, but was off the pace. I am running RM4, and thinking maybe a switch back to RM3 may be coming. Our track is all over the place as far as grip, but averages around med, but when the bite comes up, I just cant get the car close enough to the pipe..

strange, can't figure out how two different cars with two different motors both had same result, but you guys aren't having problems. I wonder if there was a batch of bad outdrives? Here is a pic, sorry it is so blurry but you get the idea.

There was a guy few months back who had the same problem, but we wrote it off as him running a mod, I run 11.5 boosted. Possibly a bad set, how else could it be explained..
Here is what mine look like after 30+
