RDX is VERY nice...the diffs on those cars are works of art!

WORST part about that KAI chassis are the side braces...don't like those things.

I haven't seen the diffs onthe RDX yet...

All I know is that after building the diffs on my TC4.....I miss Xray

The TC4 is working well for me overall...but I can see where the extra money went for the Xray

I found out today how much I hate associated shocks...i cant get one to build right for anything...either too much oil, not enough oil, or too much air...curse them, curse them!!!

Default BMI TC4 diff removal-Easy!!

unfortunately due to the location of the spur gear i couldnt make the top deck to allow for removal of rear tranny housing top.the front diff housing can be removed without removing the top deck.the top deck is mounted in the same locations as the side braces.the only way i could make it possible to do the rear is to remove the cross section behind the spur gear but it took too much strength away from the top deck.
I removed the tops of the diff cases a few times on my BM TC4 because of the problem with the extra thick gears I loosened the top deck screws in the back completely and loosened all the screws in the front almost all the way. Now it is loose enough to lift up to get rear diff. assy. apart!!

Its not hard to do at all.

They were witht he kit when I bought it.....but I'll dig throught he documentationand see what I can find for ya

Ray, good to hear...I'll likely be checking one out when they're released....

and aren't those stupid thick gears a PAIN....

Is it just the TC4 gears that are like that? If I buy a TC3 or NTC3 gearset from my LHS should they be ok?

This goes out to all the stock guys out there. Are there any carbon or composite mainshafts out there? I'm trying to lighten up my driveline. Will a mainshaft from a TC3 rtr work?

It will work if you use the TC3 drive cups as well
