We did get the MIP Super Diff Kits for the RB6 back in stock.

FINALLY, there is an alternative to the fast wearing swing shafts, and easily broken rear axles of the RB5/6. Thanks MIP!! This should be MSRP prices, not actual retail (i think).. They will no doubt be cheaper than the kyoshos, and if they last noticably longer, this will be a great upgrade once you burn through your stock set:

My WC is on there with the TLR cnc silent style spurs and 22 garodiscs for well over a month now. No adjusting needed yet slips and bites perfect everytime.

Can some one explain what it does when you reverse the steering rack and if you have ran it both ways?
