dylanj: I don't know whether it's allowed to post shop links here or not

- but also Academy Korea carries these parts:

http://www.academy.co.kr/en2/rc/rc_a...1&p_category=1 (2nd row on the right)

from the description of the ball diff, it uses a bigger thrust bearing:

2.6 (mm) Thrust Washer x2,
2 (mm) Thrust Ball x6

doesn't the stock ball diff use 2,2mm inner diameter washers and 1,5mm thrust balls?

Also note:


ST-T58



ST-T13

Both look a bit different than the one, the SB-Sport actually uses (though i think the current SB-Sport hub is an updated ST-T13, the ST-T58 looks like the fast wearing cast-metal hub... )

But honestly, I currently really don't know which parts to buy....

- black hub & white gear?
- black hub & black gear?
- silverish hub & white gear?
- silverish hub & black gear?

...it's getting funny

According to the pics, the SB-Sport actually uses WT-24 which are the diff hubs for the Wyvern!




If you want to upgrade your diffs screws, then this might work:


WT-28 seems to be the thicker M2,5 diff screw


WT-23 same thrust ball size as stock (1,5mm) but you get 9 of them instead of six - washers are also a bit larger...


Thats why I like Academy so much - throw in 5 differnt versions of some parts (including the 2 bevel gear diff types) and it still runs

hey guys, I got a set of the new material steering arms coming in to test. Will take pictures of them if they look any different and will keep you posted on how well they work out.


Here is some news about the SB Pro:

http://www.evolutionracingproducts.n...on2/latest.htm

I am going to contact Tim and see if he has any more official info on the Pro. I would like to see the aluminum hingpin mounts included as well on the Pro.

well, I am guessing, that with me STR4 Pro, it don't come with them, so I can't see the SB coming with them, I am hoping for Alloy shocks though.

Keep us posted on the steering arms, it seems like mine has alot of flex in my steering originating from the servo saver area, I know it isn't from the 94357 servo that I am using...

The dollar is weak in Europe now

209 = $376 US.... wow
That is $176 more then the sport. You might be able to upgrade 75% of that for less but you can do the numbers. Is there any items on the Pro version that you can not buy for the Sport version?

Well it is not a joke as I paid $199 for mine plus shipping. How much is a new SB and where can I get one for that?
Thanks for the positive input by the way

Well, I am guessing you wont be paying a translation of the GBP price over in the states, the kits come from Korea straight to MRC, who then put there own RRP on the kit.
