Now you can enjoy the best of both worlds! Light-weight outdrives with virtually no wear. Ace!

When you do yours, let us know how you get on and how it works for you on the track - I trust that the CGM will get the treatment first.

Nice one John Bull.

I also contacted Steve to see if he can still get the Xenon delrin diff outdrives, I know those will last a ton longer than stock as well...

Actually they were made by Excel, I messed up there, but he hasn't been able to get any in since the first batch. I'm gonna see if there is any other way to beef up the outdrive, but if not, I'll go with the RCLab things.

I know that any car can be tuned to any surface, you just need to find a brand you trust and stay with it.

I never tried the precision bearings, Jason E runs them and loves em, I just want the longevity of ceramic.

I like running the stock bearings and if they wear out I'll just but another set, its cheaper than buying ceramics.

Trust me, buy the ceramics as soon as you can. They last longer and run more free. You buy cheap you buy twice.

I think that Matt has them in his car and Mo does too and they seem to be pretty free. I'll put some ceramic bearing in the Mi2 once I get it.

Free spin isn't why I bought them, but it's definately the best out there...
