I've used assoc. green slime. So far I have about 20-25 runs on the diff's and there still smooth.

Quad mag cans are very sensitive espeiclly if you get them hot.. they are not for the masses..

use a good standard mag motor.

I had problems with them in the past as well, but I started to run EddieO's Kr based motors and have never been faster. I dont know if it's something Reedy does or not, but I smoked 2 of their motors, but havent had problems with the ones Eddie has sent.

Are aluminum outdrives any good?Either the Hammad Ghuman or IRS ones. I need to replace my outdrives soon and for about the price of 2 full sets I can get the aluminum....
I'm racing stock, will they hold up?
Also, have anyone tried the titanium cvds by titanium racing, or the MF alum shock cartidges?

I don't notice any difference in punch but I only run 19 turn and modified. The just don't wear like the plastic ones. Some guys say they give more grip but I've never done side to side tests.You can get them from Stormer. Not sure of the part number though. You'll the need two outdrives, the aluminum diff tube, and a shim assortment. You have to use the thinnest shim in the assortment. One the Losi site, you can look at the instruction manual for the xxx4 G+ and look at the assembly of the rear diff.

Would you recommend using them for stock carpet racing? It looks like the best option....

Never done carpet. Also, I've never run them in stock so I'm not sure how much the added weight would effect your punch only running a stock motor.

Just stick to your plastic outdrives for carpet racing and stock.

The outdrive savers are a nice hopup for off-road IMO, but not necissary in on-road. I've only broken 1 outdrive in on-road, I was running a spool in front with BK bone outdrives and no saver ring when it snapped.. the plastic outdrives are pretty strong.
