Has anyone tried these? They're pretty inexpensive. Wondering if they're good quality.

I am wondering what u guys are running that makes ur car wear so fast? Ive seen guys running the car all winter without the need replacing any parts.. in mod. and stock class (and were talking about skilled drivers).

Ive been running the car for atleast 20+ runs now on asphalt and i dont have any wear or even the slightest sign of it..

Tried them, they broke just as xrays do. Save yourself from annoyment and buy the steel one.

Ah.. that is probably because you need a 0.5 Or 1.0mm shim between the cup and spool with 50mm xray ecs. That solves the blade wear on Mira because the blade sits deeper in the outdrives. We've been doing that since Jan 2011 and its been discussed on various threads.

I have Nikita outdrives on my mod car. Even with 52mm shafts, I find the blades crack near the pin fairly often. I figure it's mainly due to using a 4.5 on high grip carpet with a couple of hard braking points and not always the smoothest driving style.

I blame myself, not the outdrives.

Running a 4.5 on carpet..... I blame you aswell!

Even Elliot Harper and Andy Moore don't run motors that powerfull on carpet.

Yeah, I like having too much motor, but the 4.5 does go a bit beyond overkill. Most of the guys I race mod with use boosted 6.5 motors on carpet. Just me and one of my nutty friends use 4.5. It certainly forces you to learn throttle control.

Hi! The included blocks give you 3 degree rear toe (w/ 0deg hubs) and .5deg front arm sweep. Front and back width is about 170mm measured from hex end to hex end when using 5mm hex hubs.
