1 question, is the alumn diff lighter than the stock?
As plastic is lighter than aluminium the stock diff will be lighter. Canīt say how much but I donīt think it will be that much. As soon as I get my diffs (front and rear) I will know exactly.
But I know some guys running aluminium diffs on their TC3 (IRS I think) Mi2 and Xray and all of them like them much more than plastic diffs. They say exactly the same as Jürgen told me.
An aluminium diff is running much more true and smooth and is working for much longer as there is no slippage over a run. A plastic diff will slip or change during a run because of the heat.
Another thing is over time the plastic diffhalves and the dogbones will have much wear and so there also is much play in this stage. I absolutely hate this but donīt want changing these parts all the time.
The newest Jürgen diffs are using the Corally blades which will prevent this. I always liked this with the Corally and Xray cars and now will have this with the Tamiya also. It just isnīt available for the oneway until now.
