Hey Chris - - I just saw aluminium outdrives this weekend .... I too didn't realize they were made. Will try to findout who, what, and where to get them for you. I find the stock plastic drive fine IF you keep a little grease in them.

Hi,

@rocketron: Great, if you're able to find out who makes them I'll be very interested.

Cheers
Chris

@ZeroCooL: Have you tried Champ R/C?

I would rather replace a $4.00 outdrive than a $45.00 CVD set.

Hi,

besides the fact that the Yokomo pins are snapping regardless which outdrives you're using, I wouldn't say that aluminium outdrives wear the CVD's out.
I made aluminium outdrives for the Alex Barracuda one year ago and had them in my car for 6 month before I switched to Yokomo. And I never snapped a pin, bent a dogbone or wear out a wheel axle.
So that's nothing I worry about. The only thing that is absolutely necessary are blades. But the ones from Xray are fitting really well (aswell as the one-way outdrives).

Cheers
Chris

We are running Ti Racing CVDs, I am concerned about the pins that slide on the outdrives. If you had blades to guard the pins on aluminium that would be one thing, but most people do not have that on their CVDs using a Yokomo. Seems to me that either stock plastic outdrives or Delrin outdrives are the way to go. The stock plastic ones are cheap and last a long time anyway. But if you want to spend money and time on that sort of thing, well, that's up to you.

In my experience with the BD, I've found that the optional Team Losi Brown Diff Grease is excellent. It allows you to run your diffs looser without slipping.

Hi,

@pops: Normally I'm spending my money and my time on things that make me faster and improve my skills. In my opinion that's a lot more worth then anything else. A new set of tires instead of new bling-bling-parts.
Just my thoughts on this.

@Zacharopoulos: Have you tried a new screw and a new lock nut?

Cheers
Chris
