Hey Guy's
Is the diff screw on the WCE different to the other models.
Thanks

Default I'm glad there is all this chatter

I'm glad there is all this chatter about diffs. My rear diffs slip more than someone trying to rollerblade on ice. Good for the first say two minutes, then almost all front wheel power. Ordered the aluminum outdrives and if they prove to be like the Pro4, then my slipping days are over. Any additional advice when I do the rebuild?

The diff screw in the WCE is titanium-nitride coated, however, i dont think this helps much with the durability

Not at all actually...my ti-nitride diff screw broke after 10 bats.

To the first one who falls across another brand diff screw that fits the Cyclone; TRY IT! And tell us how it worked.

Shalom, no hard feelings from the other thread.

That being said, I am running a FD of 9.75 in 64p. To me, the car feels faster than it did when I ran 9.4 FD with 48p...anyone have any suggestions as to why? Same set-up, just changed the gears.

I've been using the Kyosho diff hardware from their Stallion. It's bullet proof.
You will have to drill out the halfs due to the larger screw dia. and will have to grind about 1mm off the thread end so that it doesn't jam up the axle blade. It also requires a 1.5mm washer under the nut retainer.
The Kyosho part #'s are:


TF120---- Diff Screw (with two nuts)
BRG100--- Thrust Brg (Balls/washers)
UM124---- Spring (I think original HB spring may work)
TF113---- Nut Retainer ( this is a full tree of parts that has to bought just for the nut retainer)


I believe this to be the ultimate fix (unless you want to go with the Xray hardware). It's about 20 bucks in parts and like I said it's bullet proof AND there's a slot in the screw head just the like old one which allows for easy adjustments.


I haven't tried this with plastic diffs.
