what's that little collar for anyway? I'm guessing it's so the bearings fit the gear but why wouldn't they just use a gear that fits the bearings? Why are they introducing more parts into a diff that don't seem necessary?

It might be a manufacturing cost/benefit issue: the front and rear bevel gears are identical and probably more expensive to produce if they are different. It might be less expensive to just add the plastic collar for the rear diff since precision bevel gears are obviously more expensive to manufacture?

My guess is so they don't have to make a seperate gear for the oneway as asc does eaven the Xray the oneway pully and the diff pully are different.

Erik - Yeah, I planned on buying a ball driver last night, but did the "Ahhh, I can get it for now" attitude.

The screws were tight, but not tight enough obviously. It was quite a hard hit too, on power even. The car held up, which was surprising because it was one of those hits that you cringe as it happens.

It also offers flexibility in how to apply the gears to different platforms and projects.

I see... thanks for the info.

Couple of comments on the diffs:
First, I thought the US versions came with diffs at both ends but to my suprise there is a one-way. Bought my kit at Ultimate Hobbies. I hope the local supply chain has diff assemblies available soon.
Secondly, I compared the bevel gear with the Associated one and it is very close! Maybe a direct replacement, the gears mesh perfectly. The ratio may be different though and I didn't compare the inner ID opening.
Thirdly, I'd be curious if most people breaking teeth on the bevel gear, was it the one on the one-way? With a one-way or a spool when an accident occurs the weakest link in the drive train will break first. Sometimes it's the gears and sometimes it is the drive cups on the drive shafts.
Comments on these?

Troy, we normally cringe when you are on the track, but for other reasons

He may cringe when I am on the track, but I cringe when I see him walk in the door. I just act all nice and friendly so he doesnt hack me.

Yeah, well, at least I have enough car control so that you know it was a deliberate hack and not just bad driving

Man!

Anyone else care to rip on me while we're at it?

Edit - Gary, the results are on Trackside's website now.
