Best way I've found is to use a photo editor (I like MS Picture Manager) to size them smallish like 640x480, get yourself a photobucket or similar hosting website account, and post/link the pics here. There might be easier ways and I know theres some other methods posted here somewhere, but I like this method as I can link the pics to any post I make on any site or just link a whole album.

Default Apex Touring Car Diff

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has tried or looked into these Apex sealed gear diffs as an alternative to the ball diffs?

Associated # 31413

Thanks,

Yeah I sent a PM to the original poster and he no longer has the car and said there's a lot of fab work to make it work in the case. This looks like a drop in replacement.

I just got a TC3 about a month ago used(first road car), and started tearing it down to go through everything and rebuild. Got to the rear diff where the spur is, and the pinion shaft in the case moves up and down!!?? It only has 1 bearing and this just doesn't seem normal to me. I need some feedback on this for sure.
It is a FT kit and has the steel diff out drives.
Can someone shed some light on this?
Confused

And this is the electric version.

you need 2 bearings on that shaft, download the TC3 manual from the AE web site, it will help you with ??? like this.

The drive hub for the spur sits in the outer groove, the one bearing it has is next to the pinion gear that sits in the inner groove. Manual has it that way, am I missing something here?

I said it's the front, I meant the rear.

the spur hub goes on the rear diff, not the front.

I was thinking maybe the case might be wore out, but I swapped cases and it's the same thing.

Its not normal for the shaft to have play when the diff is mounted in the car and that shaft is supported by 2 bearings, 1 in the diff case and 1 on the chassis.
It is normal for it to have play when the diff case is out of the car and the shaft is supported by 1 bearing at that time.
