Bearings go in the Steel Diff's. Bearings go in the IRS Aluminum Diff. Bushings go into the Plastic Diffs.. Don't do like I did at snowbirds and put Bearings in Plastic Diff... it will melt.

3907 is the part number for the bushings

Theisgroup-

I heard about them but a person at my local track tried them and they say that the bushings work better in the plastic diff.

I thought the Bearings would work in the plastic diff for just 1 stock class run but they did not . Big mistake..cost me a really good run. unfortunatly the hobbyshop at the race was not open at the time so I could not buy the bushings.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

DIFF BEARINGS.

I have always fitted the narrower bearings on TC3 plastic diffs without problems.

I don't think they are really necessary - the plain bushings will work perfectly well, but once we have the bearings we use them.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

MIP has steel CVD's for the TC3. The IRS oversized aluminum bones are stronger - I've run both.

Hey, Why would the tc3 need to be "stiffer". It is already stiff, why would you need a upperdeck?
