I just got in some free samples ofand Drive. what do you guys think of it and what do you like about it.
RPM gives a smooth energy and focus for training sessions. Time just seems to fly by, regardless of how long it's been. I love this product. You will notice effects from the first dose.
Drive doesn't kick in for me until after 3 weeks, and the effects last for 5 weeks thereafter. You will NOT notice effects from Drive with the first dose, but it generally does not take a male as long as what it did me to notice/feel them (~10 days it should 'kick in').
However, together, RPM and Drive definitely aids in anyone looking for enhanced performance (i.e. my running improved). It also helps in trying to bring out muscle definition (if your diet is mostly right as well).
they are great products. i take both together. since rpn has stims i does it higher on my first dose daily then reduced and higher on the drive pre w/o.
combine this with ifg2 and you got a sound stack!
I like RPM alright, haven't tried drive. The RPM makes me horny as hell, but as far as a stimulant effect, not so much. I'm highly caffeine tolerant, though. I actually take it before work to get me a little revved up and to help me focus. I likely won't be getting it again, though, it just isn't worth it for my needs.
The Truth is, there is no Truth.
I like Drive. RPM is meh.
I have used both supps individually and together. Alone, RPM works great, but together..........double the effect. I take 4 RPM, and 3 drive together. There is no over stimmed feeling, and the endurance just kicks unexpectedly.

Highly recommend both...
..with RPM I sweat like a Scout Master - Drive jacks up aggression and endurance, but as Rosie mentioned it takes a little time to kick in - I found one std bottle of Drive wasn't sufficient.
I would save the Drive samples - there's not enough there to bother with IMO. Being a generally well regarded Supp, you may as well buy a bottle, and just extend the stack.
I am very impressed with both,They sent me enough samples to run for a full week and i will for sure buy some with my next NP order.
RPM was favorable for energy, though vascularity, 'pumps' and the other associated effects were non-existent for me. While I enjoyed my bottle I received in a trade, the energy was somewhat 'jittery' - so to speak - and I would not go as far as to purchase the product.
Drive, on the other hand, elicited no effects whatsoever for me - unfortunately. I used four bottles, going as high as 9 caps/day, and saw nothing in the way of tangible results.
Just my experience.
I have used RPM/Drive countless times stacked and have used RPM in other stacks...I really like the product. Vascularity, endurance, muscle hardness, libido up, recomp effects..they also are great in PCT
I would say RPM is better, only cause I am a stim junkie. It makes me sweat like a mofo, and energetic in an agreesive way. But I think RPM and Igf-2 is a better stack than RPM with Drive. But can not go wrong with two or three in a stack.
I loved them stacked together. Drive is one of my favorite supps. hands down.

With that being said, if you do any endurance-related exercise at all I struggle with the notion you'd feel nothing given the dose you quote. Although we've observed variances in the intensity and the amount of time to take effect, until your post I've yet to hear of a complete "non-responder". Although it is obviously possible, the proof is in the pudding - the better the product is, the lower the probability is of a "non-response" occurring - which is why we've seen virtually no complaints. If I see a lot of "non-responders" to a product, it's becomes apparent that it is moreso an excuse for a marginal product than it is of, say, "improper dosing protocol".
I also find it disappointing, as a company owner, you respond to an individual in this particular manner. I often find Applied Nutraceuticals representatives relaying negative personal commentary on USP Labs' products but, assume it is just that: personal commentary, unrelated to prior connections between USP Labs and Applied Nutraceuticals. Apparently, you have decided not to address me with the same respect. Unfortunate.
At any rate, I went through four bottles as they were from a trade, free of charge [as I said above in my original post]. If you also reread my post, I said I was dosing at 9 capsules per day. 440/9 = 48.8 days. I increased the dosage assuming the effects were dose-dependent and temporal - that is, increasing with dosage and time. For myself, neither were the case. However, rather than waste product, I adjusted dosing times and so forth to attempt to find a functional dose for myself.
Also, I am confused as to why you feel giving a free product 48 days of leniency before making a final decision is so strange? Would you rather I use the product for 12 days [one bottle] and hastily and openly post my commentary? I assume no. In fact, this is the first time I have ever openly spoken about a lackluster response to another company's products. I spoke about your product's respectfully and honestly, and your reply is unnecessary.
In terms of individuals not eliciting the effects expected from Drive, I have seen several such mentions; though, I would say a positive response is in the majority. This was simply not my experience. Why you chose to infer a universally condemning remark from my personal commentary is beyond me. Hopefully in the future you address potential customers with more respect and humility!

I'm simply stating your comment pegged the needle on my BS meter, especially given your affiliation. Despite the elequence of your response, it still stinks of bull. Nothing more, nothing less.
