yes there are replacement nuts. they have this removable style because the lock nuts that go in there are suppose to be replaced when you rebuild the diff to make sure that the diff wont loosen itself. i dont have my manual on me at the moment to tell you the exact nut, but i am pretty sure its also the same nut in the pro4. so if you do a bit of searching around you should be able to find them.

the plastic diffs are really just fine. however the reason why they switched to the aluminum diffs with the blades in the upgraded cars (hara, surk, and andy moore) is because over time the outdirves will get elongated and have alot of play between the outdirve and the pin on the bone, that is why they went with aluminum and blades. they also tried to solve this issue with the pro4 by going to delrin outdrives but over time those hole got elongated as well so they just chose to go with aluminum this time and then you just have to change out the blades and not have to rebuild the entire diff to replace the outdirves.

K, well after a trip to the hobby shop, I found some diff nuts that work. They aren't made for the diff. they are by dubro, 2mm hex nuts. The guy there didn't know anything at all about diffs, or parts for them, so I had to go on my own. I think they might need a little shim, 2.5 might have worked better or 3mm but I have these now so I guess i'll try them till they break.

I have a quick question. I have a front one-way, center one-way, and rear diff. Can someone tell me if this is set up right? If I grab the top of the larger belt and move it forward, it gives power to the front wheels and spins the spur gear. The back belt doesn't move. The rear belt is set up so if you grab the top and move it back it moves the rear wheels but not the spur gear. Is this correct?
Thanks!
Justin

should be u spin the spur so the wheels spin forwards all wheels should move, spin the spur so that it would be in reverse and only the back would move

You need to swap the center pulley's. You're using the center one-way pulley for the rear belt and the fixed pulley for the front one-way, just turn them around and it will work as it should.

It probably wasn't your fault, in the early manuals it was discribed the way you build it the first place, later on they changed it though.
