Default BSR M RAGE UPGRADE DIFF GEARS

Hi Guys,

I have just purchased the BSR M Rage from Hobbyking and after some reading it seems that the diff gears are susceptible to being stripped out

I have heard some people upgrading these to metal gears (along with the outdrives) but i am struggling to find where to buy these stronger gears from?

Can someone please help me find the link to buy the upgraded metal diff gears from?

Thanks in advance

Jayden

There's already an M.Rage thread where this has been discussed. The small input gears are available in metal, from Hobbyking. You'll need a short input shaft (available from Hobbyking) and a short spur hub (not available from Hobbyking, should be available from https://m-racing.co.uk/). It's apparently possible to shorten the stock spur hub in a pinch. The metal outdrives are also available from https://m-racing.co.uk/, or from NitroRCX under the Drift King branding (part number MAD-NH3119).

I've heard rumours of large metal diff gears but the OEM doesn't make them and I don't know where to get them from. These don't strip as often as the smaller gears though, you probably don't need them.

OK, a few months ago I ordered two plastic ball diffs from Hobbyking, and they shipped me two gear diffs with metal ring gears and metal outdrives. Go figure, I sh!t you not.

You need the shorty metal input gear and shorty metal input shaft like mentioned.

I have ripped the stock plastic ring gear along the holes for the balls. All the way around. With a 13.5 on blinky and sweep slicks, sticky track. Never ever damaged any plastic teeth.

Never had a driveline prob with 21.5 nor 17.5, other than me over tightening the ball diff. But the plastic outdrives do wear where the pins make contact.

Seriously? I asked them if they could source the gear diffs and they said no.
