So far there is 1 entry for mod TC. Is the one entry an XRAY? If so, I guess XRAY really will "dominate" mod sedan

You probably won't need to change the gasket, but the o-ring tends to expand, so you will want to replace that or I've heard some guys just run a bead of green slime around that o-ring area and omit the o-ring entirely. I've seen a couple of my friends cut a small section out of the o-ring to re-fit it. Personally, I'd just put in a new o-ring.

For me, it's one less thing to fiddle with, leaving me more time for more important adjustments to try.
Hi, how do the top retainers fit on to the std driveshaft axles, are they not the wrong shape, what holds them in place?

I recently got the vbc t32f chassis and clamps through crc and am very happy with the quality and performance of the kit. I would recomend it if your in the market for something a little different.

I think this is why I assumed they don't work also. But even though Xray only uses a crescent shaped axle, it should work as HarryLeach says.

It's hard to see in pictures of the TOP retainer, but they have a decent lip on one side that keeps them from sliding over the whole joint. Once installed in the bearings and hubs, there's no wobble, some slight inboard/outboard play, and when installed the cross pin is never uncovered.

Is it perfect? No, but it does work very well.

+1 ive been using the top retainers for ages....never had a failure since...and it eliminates the use of a grub screw....no more chewed out steering blocks for me....

I use a gear diff in the front, filled with cleaning putty (almost locked). I think it makes the car easier to drive for modified on outdoor asphalt. It has more initial steering.
