Are you guys greasing up your outdrives at the start of each race day? Mine seem to last a very long time with very little sign of wear.

You could also try these and let us know if they are any better.

i know people that do and some that dont. i personally dont, but this is because our truck can be quite dusty between the fortnights we have our club days and i found by adding a little grease to the outdrive joints that it turned more into a grinding paste with the dust present.

i dont know if it is just me, but i have found the std outdrives and bones that come with the std evo kit to be of much better quality to the ones that came with my origional RRR wce kit, where i would of been thinking about swapping my outdrives on my old kit, the evo's haven't even appear to have any wear at all and still look brand new.

So you're saying i screwed up the balance in the car by using the droop settings wrong. and my problem is that i need more steering? Would explain a lot off things, will try it with the stock setup and more caster next race.

Question for everyone... Without flipping the outdrives to use the other side, how long are the outdrives lasting on your cars? Since it's difficult to measure this by distance or even time, I'm gauging it by the amount of fuel used.

In my situation, I just finished a gallon of fuel on a new V-One-RRR Evo WCE chassis and the outdrives are so worn that it was causing handling issues. What was occurring was the CVDs would stick in the worn out section and bind up the suspension. This caused a "chatter" or "hopping" effect on acceleration and induced a push to the car in high-speed turns.
Ive found that mine normally only last 2-3 meetings max before I have to swap them out -- even putting heat shrint around the cup to retain the grease is nut helping too much. I have ordered a set of these Factroy Pro jobbies and i'll let you know how I get on.
