Yes! HB used the thrust washer from the D4 and D4 WCE! Good job hotbodies! Im glad to see they used parts from their other cars rather than make all new parts making it harder to find.

I think its odd though, cyclone12 diff rings and D4 thrust washers

I just got finished building my first of the two new diffs I bought and all I can say is....OMG this is SO much better This diff will really lock down and is still very, very smooth.

RC Market, I'm glad to hear you'll be carrying the ceramic thrust balls.

you can use any 3mm diff ball for the diff and I forget what the 8 thrust balls are.

Have other people found this too? What's the solution? Is it just a case of lengthening the shock?
JL .... I was thinking about doing the same thing so I'm also interested in your upgrade. Maybe the new 2 hole balk heads are shorter???? Hang in there and somebody will let us know.

Just wondering if you can use the one-way pulley for the spool??......... Or it has to be different for the screws to fit and there is one just for the spool??

Thanks,

the one-way pulley is used for both the spool and the one-way. However they use different screws to secure the peice to the pulley!

Gas to Orlando and back = $40
new set of tires = $30
race entry = $15
bench racing on r/c tech = price"less"

Dave,
Seriously, I'll be out of town on Sat. to a wrestling meet for Jeff. So, we'll see what happens by Sunday....but the car is ready with the new diff installed.
