for me i found that the number of shims that the instructions tell you to use was incorrect. iirc i had to add more shims, and move them all (but 1) to one side.
make sure you're input shafts are shimmed right first...then set the diff so there is a LITTLE play between the teeth. kinda like spur gear mess, as little play as possible without drag.

dont know if that helps you (prolly not) but thats my experience

I looked at a set of my TC4 ones and they look the same. Infact the AE diff bearing also fits inside the HPI diff gear. It should work. I still need the new 05Pro 4 motor mount, steering knuckles, JRX-S shocks, ti screw set, AE diff screw/nut and aluminum seering bell crank. It's going to look sweet. I hope it goes sweet.

With the AE gears, you have to remember that its bearing and shaft sizes are standard, while the pro 4 is metric. I compared the two very closely. You might have to due some slight reaming to the center of the gears to get it to fit, just make sure its snug and not loose on the shaft or bearing afterwards. Also remember to gear down about 1 tooth because your new internal ratio will be 2.5 instead of 2.4375. Maybe I will get out the reamer and give it a try some day.

I have one of the AE TC3 one way gears in my pro4 with a spool right now, i run mod every week and it has lasted longer than the HPI ones have for me in the past.
