Just the CNC susp braces and hardened 13t clutch bell. Everything else will work just fine.

Default standard diffs

OK, here is the scope on the new non LSD style diffs.
I was told today by CEN Racing that the new CEN standard diffs will be many months away before they hit the store shelves.

In the mean time, Machine's R/C Hobbies will be selling a non Cen aftermarket Matrix/TR Arena standard diff conversion kit. This hop-up conversion kit includes standard style cross pins, washers, and shims to eliminate the gear plates found in the LSD style Matrix diffs. When installed and shimed correctly, these diffs operate just like an Ofna/Kyosho style diff but smoother and makes the buggy/truggy much easier to drive and more adjustable since you don't have to use only grease. They will work with the plastic or alumn diff cases. These are what I and Kyle Sokol have been using in our cars/trucks. I TQ'd and won Truck and Buggy at the FSORS last weekend with them.

I am having 20 sets made right now. They should be ready to ship Monday Jan 22nd. I am taking pre-orders starting now. If they sell out by the end of the week, I will have more made as needed the following week and I will accept back orders.

E-mail me for prices or to place an order. Free standard shipping.

machinesrchobbies@hotmail.com

Here is what each kit includes:



This is what it looks like installed:

The 1st batch of cross pin sets have been claimed. If you e-mailed me, send your payment info by Monday to hold them. Otherwise they will go to the next on the list.

If anyone else wants to back order them for the next run, let me know so I know how many to have made.

In reference to the Buggy, what would be some good spare parts to order with the buggy. Typical parts a beginner might need. Thanks.

arms, c-hubs, and rear hubs, the little clam shell shock washers, and if your using the plastic rear toe block, i'd get a spare one of those, or get one of the aluminum ones, also the balls that hold the inner rear hinge pins,

In a season of racing last year, the only part I broke was a front CVA, but that was after a rock got stuck in it, the arms and hubs are all very strong, but its a good idea to have spares, even if they are just to replace the ones that are on the buggy when they wear out,
