Yes, just use the thin card stock glued to the diff rings and take out the diff balls. Tighten all the way and then back it off a 1/8 of a turn. This will help it absorb some impact. But you'll still need to replace the plastic CVD's. They're a must. I wish there was another way to help your car go faster, but the front diff just limits you so much. There's nothing to overcome it besides putting a spool in.

You might want to phone directly and check stores in the US to see about prices including postage etc.

A spool will give you more steering all around. Diffs aren't used anymore for a reason. They push. Plain and simple. (Other than on carpet with foams but that's a whole different thing.) The steel CVD's are the cheapest way to go and still be able to run a spool. They'll work great for you. You could try and run your plastic CVD's with a spool, just don't hit anything! Not even a corner dot. It won't be a question of if they'll break, more like when will they break.

Schumacher USA has TIR alloy CVDs for the the original Mi2 and they are on sale. Send an e-mail for details adrian@schumacherusa.net

The diff will give you slightly more inital steering, but thats where it ends.
