I had problems in the begining with o-rings leaking due to outdated rear caps...make sure you buy the newer style drives.
I run 800hp though mine and they have held up where as IMCO did not.

Fenderjack,

B-maxes are the way to go. What power are you running? I know of a few people running them with huge sucess over bravo style upper's( two 388 hustlers & an apache), the lowers are nothing special. 1:30 is the only gear option right now. Make sure your motors make enough torque to pull the gear. My friend has a active thunder, and for whatever reason he lost somewhere around 12 mph. We bought the drives together and I know he is selling his. They worked out great for me. Just keep in mind, you will probably have to buy some props as well. pm me and I will give you his #
