You will need damper tube assembly from a12r5.2, or you can purchase a set from RSD when you order the conversion which is the less expensive way to go.

The conversion is "technically" for the 5.2, which uses damper tubes. The 5.1 will work just fine, but you do need to purchase the additional tubes to complete it. We sell the damper tubes at the store as well.

I think craig had the diff to borrow because he used an irs style diff with magnesium parts to make it lighter for 17.5 racing

The diff has a carbon axle. if you really want to reduce wheel wobble, bsr makes a thing, not sure what to call it, it looks like the thing pizza places put in boxes to keep the pizza from getting squished. You use it when you true the rear tires to keep the arbor from warping the wheel, its pretty nice
This is totally a preference thing. I prefer the freer IRS diff. It makes the car less aggressive by a bit I feel. The XRAY diff is great, but you must get the cf axle.

Also, I have actually found that I go longer in between re builds with the IRS diff. The key, however is getting a good bearing in the thrust. We will have our own specific thrust bearings this week (they are still regular flanged bearings), which are picked out from the general population for their smoothness. I used to think the Xray diff lasted longer, but it no longer is the case. I constantly had to clean and re grease the thrust assembly to keep it smooth.

Key to keeping the diff fresh is your diff and car setting. The car must not be diffing out to keep the diff is in good shape. Many times in high bite, this is caused by suspension settings and not having a loose diff. Many people just keep tightening it an it goes bad quickly.

Only thing is to get a bag of AS31305 Ballcups for your damper tubes. These will work great on you steering linkages as well. I can't think of anything else, aside for basic 12th scale items like shims, springs, etc...

Looks good. I'm anal about runout on my truer. I actually use a dial indicator to check it. The truest one I've seen yet is the pro one rc arbor but I still got some wobble on the outside edge of the rears due to hub distortion. Fixed that by getting one of the pizza box looking things from Team Tamale:

Now they come out dead on the money except one car that still shows a wobble on the right rear. Time for a new hub I guess.

Believe it or not, I had a graphite axle that was warped. Drove me nuts because graphite is either straight or broken, right?. Finally checked the run out on the axle and dang, there was the wobble.

Yeah I've seen that before too. My axle looks fine but haven't put the indicator on it yet so who knows.
