There is absolutely nothing wrong with the stock Losi or AE diff parts. The fastest team guys - RC, RM, Tebo, Truhe, Robbers, etc, etc. all run the stock stuff guys.

New rings are fine - but if you are really picky - get some 600 grit sand paper and lay it on a smooth flat surface and wet the paper (I use my glass stove top in my house) - put a diff ring on the female out drive and sand the ring in a circular motion until the ring has a uniform finish or if a used ring, until the track where the diff balls ran is no longer visible. Do both rings - assemble - you are done.

One thing worth mentioning is make sure you have the newer style thrust bearing if you are building a Losi diff - the one with the caged balls and the thick washers with the concave races for the balls to run in. They came with the AD2 and the JRXS stock...and I assume now with all the cars.

These are in stock and ready to ship as well, I dont believe anyone else offers a ceramic thrust that is captured by a solid piece of brass as we have these specially produced.

I just ordered a www.BFastRC.com diff today:

P70 kit contains the B-FAST massaged rings (Losi 3070), a dozen Carbide diff balls (3/32") and the Caged Thrust Bearing.
