One thing, does anyone know what these are?

The only thing I can think of is those things that go on the ends of the inboard suspension pins.
the next thing I buy!
those are delrin pivot block balls... repaces those heavy steel ones....

Hopefully my part will stay alive now that HPI has come out with there own. Fortunately for me, our plate braces the entire gear, not just the small flat area of the gear. So that's a plus!!!

YOu'll want a shorter wheel base for tight technical tracks... long wheel base for open high speed tracks....

thanks for the tip Dave....I'll look into the Square ones....

When do we get to see your Pro4.....

Look like Square is coming out with an aluminum bevel gear...
might be a bit too pricey at $30.00usd..

anyone running ceramic balls in their differentials?

if so, are there any differences compared to the stock ones?

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Yes running Acer ceramic diff balls. The good thing is that they've been very resistant to feeling gritty. The bad thing is that they're so hard that if I crank on it hard enough the diff will slip. It actually makes a clicking sound. I took them apart to check for wear or damage and the diff looks fine...practically new.
