So far, all the answers for aluminum are from QC guys, the steelies are RC guys...hmmm....
Both of mine are 2WD....are there any 2WD RCSBs with aluminum?? If so, I need to start checking the junkyards for one.

As far as I know, all RCSB have always been steel and the rest have always been aluminum.

Sounds like RCSB's have a good easy junkyard mod they could do to lose a few lbs of rotational mass
