I was going to replace the pivot balls soon, any recommendations? I have seen some delrin and flouride coated or should I just stay with stock? Also, where is a cheap place to buy?

BTW, still love driving the car- 3rd in A again.

Anyone come across some oversize pivot balls. These do get some slop.

Default Bumper

hey Guys,
I got one of those parma ultimate bumper. It is much wider than the stock foam one. I did have to play with it a little to get the good fit. It is dense foam does a nice job.
God Bless

The steel diffs are way too heavy, even for mod in my opinion. Also, the diff rings on the steel outdrives are round (not the D-rings that the plastic diff uses or like those of almost every modern car out there) and this could cause the diff rings to slip. If you are running stock, stick with the plactic outdrives. If you hit the alls alot and run stock, use the IRS Aluminum outdrives in the front and the plastic in the back. If you run mod, I would run the IRS aluminum outdrives all around. They are extremely light and almost as tough as the steel outdrives. If you use dog bone pin cushins, they will last forever.

Here is another oppinion. They are great.Basically, it is the same diff that is a legend in Off-Road. Different diameter, but same concept. The car is way under weight, so to make weight, it doesn't hurt. Plus it is very low in the car. I know, but it is rotation weight, and lighter is better. Yes, on acceleration. But the weight also keeps things rolling, and seems to carry more through the corners when you are rolling through. Plus, they are very durable.

Personally, if the car was underweight, I would rather add the weight to the chassis and not to the drivetrain. But that is my preference...i'd rather keep the rotating mass as light as possible.

I like 64 pitch. Most say that it will quiet the drive train down a little but I have never noticed that on any of my cars. I like it becuase it offers a finer selection of gearing.

The circular diff ring was something I was wondering about the other day. Surely this would not work properly as with a D shaped ring that clips into place for example. One of my friends got a ball diff for a cheapie academy car with circular diff rings and it would not stop slipping. We tightened it till the diff screw broke to try and get it to stop...

Default Believe it or not...

...once upon a time ALL diff rings were round.
