Only $224 per diff? What a bargain, for the price of 3 diffs I can almost get a whole new can AND engine

I'd buy them... But only if I can get crystal clear diff cases with neon lights to show off my blingy new horrendously-overpriced diff.

Thumbs up

I'm going over there this weekend. There are quite a few folks from Dallas going.

That diff looks crazy. The stock diffs work fine. The ones with inserts are even better.

In regards to your outdrives. I just switch mine from one side to the other if they get rounded out and cupped.
Repin the ends of the bones and call it a day.

Hope this helps,
TEX

I do not run the aluminum chassis braces and radio tray stiffners. None of the Pro drivers run it either. Just run the plastic standard stuff. The car needs flex, hence that is why they came out with the TFT chassis.

Hmmm... they might actually serve a purpose... after all, that heavier aluminum case has more rotating mass to slow things down...

and if you combine those will all the aluminum stuff from Team Integy you could have the worlds first 20# Losi 8ight! All for only the cost of a Honda Civic...

I got on the thread just to ask about these diffs. For that amount of money they better make the car twice as fast with no loss of traction EVER!

Does everyone use those Arm Protectors? I was reading on amainhobbies that the carbon ones made by Xtreme RC are fragile and don't last long. If you don't use in muddy conditions do you still require them?
