i have them in my car. really they dont do much to improve anything. maybe if your running stock the drive train will be a bit more free so it might help with stock. but running mod or 19t they probably dont make a lick of difference, and they probably dont make much difference either way. but if you want to run them as i chose to i would go with speed mind. their bearings have been awsome for me for a few years now in my pro4.

Hi guys, sorry this is a newb question, but I need some help. I have a cyclone that I just bought, used. I am confused. The diff in the back (which is purple aluminum) is aftermarket. The diff cup joints have a bigger slot They have a little blue spacer to fit into the diff. Does anybody have an idea on which kind they are (the blue spacers) or a part number. Also the diff nut which is on it is different than the spares I have, they are both plastic. Is there an upgrade for these or are they ok? Thanks!!

thanks zombie. i really need somthing to work off of for this year's nats. the race is going to be held at a smaller high grip track which is some what similar to last year's track. so if any one knows where to find a setup like that as well that would be nice. right now i just dont have the corner speed.

Here are pics:
the blue spacers are blades made by 3racing, which is probably who the diff was made by. 3Racing (#CY-08A) Differential Cusion Hotbodies Cyclone <-- that is the the blue blade

the plastic parts are just fine and normal, you can see the actual nut inside. if they are a different size then that means they came with the 3racing diff, and are probably better then the stock one since the stock ones are prone to breaking. but they are probably made for the diff you have. so i suggest leaving them in.

haha, Those are what blades are. I have heard about them for the longest time. Thanks so much. The question I have about the thrust washer I believe it is called is that the two little arms that stick out are bent back a little bit. I think if I try to tighten the diff again they might break. Also it wouldn't be a bad idea to pick up extras as I have heard people can have problems with their diff. Thanks again for all the help!

Thanks again for the help. Ifound the 3racing diff and blades online. However, I am having trouble finding the nut. As you can see from the pictures a few posts back, the one that was in the car has a little metal nut that is pressure fitted into the plastic diff nut. The spare one didn't have a nut inside. On the one in the car the metal nut is round, while the spare plastic piece has a hex shape to accomodate a metal nut. can you buy the diff nut byitself or do you have to get a whole new kit?
Thanks!
