Would anybody know where to get the shock rebuild kit for the shock set 4310? I was told they are yokomo shocks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Only changes i made was that teh diff plates wore out fast and i modded some MIP plates to fit and havent been doing rebuilds as often as before. I also am using Tamiya diff screws and 1 piece thrust bearing.
I can run 2/3 club events and teh diffs are still smooth.
I have been waiting for Serpent gear diffs for most part of this year but seeing no one has stock and the local agent cant get themselves i am happy with the diffs in the car.
If anything though i dont like the idea of the thinner 2mm diff screws.

I managed to squeeze the Serpent Gear diff into the car.
Just need to sand down the outside face of the bearing carriers, and use no shims.
I had to trim the top deck and the shock tower a touch, as now the pulley sits a little further to the right than before.
I ended up using the small centre pulleys, and the medium length belts i tihnk it was.
I would prefer the larger centre pulley as with the direct drive from the gear diff belt skip and belt failure is going to be a problem.
I still need to play around with setup a little, but so far with spec motors up to 10.5 the car is amazing, the drive out of the corners is crazy. With 5 cell mod it might be a bit of a handful as the punch is too much. And you will have problems with the rear belts coping, especially with the small centre pulley.

I also had to put in some Tamiya 44mm driveshafts, as the std ones are too long.

The best thing is though, that i never have to worry about the diff getting gritty.

I tried the new arms, and wasnt so impressed, they are just insanely stiff, took a ton of traction away from the car.

I love the plastic arms.
If they comeo ut with a plastic version, i will be a happy camper, as i would like to try out the adjustable lower shock mount options.

Did you weigh the gear diff before you installed it? I'm wondering how much more it weighed than the stock diff.

I did not weight it, it is heavier but it does not feel extremely heavy.
The benefit of the positive drive will more than be offset by the rotating mass.

Everyone keeps asking me what motor i have in it cause if has so much grunt.

So are you using the serpent pulley or have changed to top stock diff pulley. Im doing the research on that too and in the middle of considering which to get. Top alu diff or gear diff.

Used the 15t centre pulley, a original 415 34 tooth oneway pulley on the spool/1way and the serpent gear diff which is 34t.

If you want to stick with a ball diff, get the belt conversion for the 37t pullies, and run a tamiya diff pulley, and tamiya large diff ring out of the 416, with the TOP alloy outdrives, this give an awesome feeling diff, and with the extra and wider spaced balls, has minimal slip and lasts longer.

Default IIC Coverage

Hey Guys,

I've updated the TOP USA site: www.topracingusa.com and added an IIC coverage section. I'll try to update on there as much as I can.

The gear diff is definately the option for mod but the ally TOP diff setup just needs harder diff rings and the Tamiya thrust to be reliable and smooth.
I do use the ceramics balls too.

TOP currently sell the JAAD ceramic diff balls and ceramic thrust bearing under their own label... I use both of these with tamiya diff rings and you have a sensational diff... Also use AE black grease for thrust and AE silicone grease for diff balls...

This will last more than a full meet under mod loads and have zero slip with free diff action. Might be an idea to try AE plates too but haven't done that yet.
