I think I saw somewhere that exotek, associated both have one. Amy recommendations? I've been running the protek 3800 30c lipo in my cyclone with no issues and no mods so I probably won't go much larger then a 3800. Will it fit without any mods? Is the tray more of a balance issue? One more thing, are there any must upgrade parts? Thanks!
You'll need a lipo tray. The tray will help keep the lipo in place and prevent it from sliding around. I have the Diggity Designs lipo tray and it works great. There are others such as the Corally/Specialized RC, which I haven't tried. I believe the Associated lipo tray hasn't been released yet. I'm currently running the SMC 5200mah 50C and it fits. The Diggity Designs tray is offset, so you can position the battery inward or outward to achieve the correct balance. The only other "must have" upgrade is the Associated Stealth Diff Nut for the front spool and rear diff. The stock diff nut and nut carrier is too weak.

Actually it has been released. Many of us are running them.

How can I tighten my ball diffs more? The screw is at the edge of snapping
but I want to make it more tighter.

As others have suggested you can use a longer screw from other MFGs, but why would you need to run such a tight diff? Are you trying to get rid of slipping? If you build them correctly you can run them very free and not have them slip.

My diffs were built correctly. I run on slippery and dusty surface. And in my
experience, running a medium-tight ball diffs helps me accelerate better.
I now use a long diff nut and screws from Tamiya and Yokomo diff balls.
My TC4 diffs can be really tight if I turn the screw more. Why cant I achieve
this in my TC5R? Im also using composite diffs.

Did he use the same set-up as he did at the IIC?

What are the part #s of the longer diff screws that you've found to work?

The stock ones have got to be the most frustrating things I've ever worked with on an RC car. With no RC shops within thousands of miles of me makes it even more annoying.

Fully compress the diff spring for an hour or 2,with a vice grip or what ever to hold it in place.. and then building the diff will be much more easier!

You may want to try the slipper spool in the front instead of a diff. You wont get any more drive than with a spool...

What yokomo diff balls are you using? Because the stock ones are not metric, they are 3/32". That may be causing you some issues..
