Maybe they should make ceramic diff rings... or at least tungsten carbide.

That will be the world's most hopped up and most expensive RC car you're talking about!

Some countries can't even afford the TX and RX for this car LOL.

Found these Hi-grade ceramic diff balls at half the price for HPI.
$10.00 for 12 3/32" (2.4mm) - 5/64" (2MM)

http://rc4less.safeshopper.com/22/446.htm?542

I've got couple sets already...
rc4less has one of the best prices and very easy to deal with.

This was definately the case with the "old school" white ceramic balls. Those when combined with the cermaic ring lasted forever!! With stock rings, you had to count the number of runs!

The new balls are a bit different though. Their main benefit is their lightweight (I think about 7 or 8g of rotating mass if memory serves). The hardness is very similar to carbide balls. The newer balls use a cermic nitride coating, so the base material is actually lighter and softer, but due to the coating, they are similar hardness without the weight. Wear should be similar to carbide balls.

HUMM good to know
