When you glue the diff rings, only glue the outer edge, that is all you need. To replace them in the future the glue easily scrapes off. Another option instead is to use heavy diff grease to keep the plates from moving. Like 15k Kyosho diff grease.

You can also use Tamiya anti-wear grease or Hard friction damper grease behind the diff plates.

Got a question for one of you Tamiya experts.

What is the difference between the Flourine Shocks and the Hard Black Coating shocks?

If you had a choice which would you go with?

Any info would help.

yes you can use them. good upgrade if you make lots of changes to roll center... the holes for the camber links wears out on the carbon/plastic pieces.

Hey guys I could use some help. I'm assembling my TA05Ver2 and I'm trying to install the rear dogbones. I've got a problem with the left ( drivers) side. The diff is too shallow and the bone won't fit deep enough in to it. I've double checked the assemble of the diff, it's installed in the car with the nut side facing the left. The turnbuckles are the correct lenght, the ball studs are in the correct holes on bulkhead and the axle holder. The right side seems too deep and the bone falls out. Any suggestions? Thanks

On the right side, I've got the black o ring in the axle and the pink spacer(uncut) in the diff. I can slide the bone into the diff enough that the bone falls out.
On the left side, I've got the o ring in the axle and a 1/2 pink spacer in the diff. Like I said, the bone won't go deep enough into the diif, I can't get the turnbuckle installed.
