Just curious what kind of problems you're experiencing with the 22 RTR gear diff? I've got about 6 race days on mine so far and it seems to be holding up pretty well so far with my car remaining fairly competitive, though I plan to switch back to the MIP pucks this weekend after recently upgrading to longer 67mm shafts with rollers.

I was sold a bi-metal diff recently and the rep didn't realize it wouldn't be compatible with the pucks system, however it does work fine with the stock shafts. Supposedly they will be releasing a bi-metal system for the pucks within the next few weeks. The bi-metal kit (#16020) comes with everything (including rings,balls) except the plastic diff gear. The rings are 100% identical to the stock rings in the kit.

I don't see any reason why you can't recycle the kit diff parts and buy the bi-metal outdrives (#16025) and bi-metal hubs (#16072) separately.

The screw in the bi-metal kit measures 26mm long from the back of the socket head to the tip of the threads. I would double check the length of the screw in the kit diff is the same length. I'm not gonna take my diff apart to measure it anytime soon.
