Looking at pictures of Hara's car I see he runs Delrin diff at the rear of his car. I used to use an Excel Delrin Diff on my SD and liked it. Any idea if HPI will be bringing out a Delrin diff or are there any aftermarket ones that can be bought? Would an SD diff fit?

Any ideas greatly appreciated!

David
Any spools out yet?
I just got a spare diff. This one-way has to go for asphalt racing.
Would you suggest locking down the diff, or using epoxy on the one-way?
I may run this car on carpet in the near future.

I would like to see the steel diffs around first. putting down major HP on carpet track can cause some serious stress on the diffs

no the SD diff will not fit...already tried it...
Most probably HotBodies or Square will come out with a delrin diff.
I had a delrin diff on my Pro3 and liked it alot.

and to all...

the 1, 1.5 and 2 degree arm mounts was just released from Japan... hopefully we should have it in a month....takes a while for that canoe to paddle to the US...

actually the stock graphite diff is lighter than the delrin...
the delrin diff just runs smoother and more durable.

you'll have to do a search on RainbowTen.

I order some of my parts from RcModel as well...they have most of the Square and Jet parts in stock...

Guys;

Tower Hobbies has MOST of the essential Pro4 replacement parts in stock now. Still waiting on the Bevel Gears and Arm set though.
