Default HB Cyclone S problems

I have a Cyclone S that I bought used... Pretty good shape car, hence the screws stripping and lack of parts out there.

Anyway after examining it. I have noticed that the ball diffs have a problem with them. The major concern I have is, the ball diff pull seems to wiggle and wobble around. Even when the ball diff is locked to full adjustment. I have examined both of them and they are like this.

On the rear diff I noticed that it doesn't have all the thrust balls in it. But the front diff does and has the same amount of wobble even when its set to to max tightening.

I am wondering if I need to go ahead and buy a rebuild kit for it? Also is it possible the diff rings need to be replaced?

One more thing where can I can find something that will tell me the compatiblity of parts between the S, TC, and TCX?

Thanks guys!

The wobble is normal for the ball diffs. That's basically just the diff gear "floating" on the diff ball.

As for rebuilding the diff, unless it feels like it worn out (gritty feeling not smooth) I wouldn't worry about it unless you just want to be on the safe side.

Parts compatibility is for the most part just the TC parts. TC parts are 100% compatible with the S. The TCX has very little that's compatible with the S.

Hope that helps.
