Default atomic diffs

The xray t2 006/007 diffs fit perfectly. There was a slight change in the 008/009/t3 diffs (they are offset differently.)

New, the diffs are about $60 (outrageous.) Try to find used t2/007 diffs.

I know the price is still high after all these years. When using the Xray Diffs are you also using their gears or do you have to use the atomic ones?

Default Ball cups and ball studs

Has anyone found replacement ball cups and ball studs that will work for this car? It doesn't seem to take much of a hit to pop the factory cups loose and one piece ball studs for the c-hubs and uprights would be better for me.

what are you guys doing for tires? I ran some Tamiya mini tires and the car was just drifting. I need some good tires for the birds......RCmart was out of most of the other makes. I am at a loss what tires and where to buy them in time for the race. Any ideas?

Ginsu, I have mini take off RP30's in the back room, also some inserts (if they work), I think speedtech has some as well?

Are the TRF M-chassis shocks a direct fit for this chassis? I am sort of torn on which car to get. This one or the Genetic. I have a set of TRF shocks laying around, but this is not my deciding factor

I've seen them on the genetics but don't know if the driver use tamiya ball cups or stock. I use Tamiya on my vm2 and they feel 200% smoother than stock

What surface do you run on? What tires are allowed at your track?
