You are right. I always build with ceramic balls; so, I just HAD to get that out...

Yeah I actually am running the ceramics right now as well, but the first build I did with the stock balls. Getting ready for vegas I just cleaned the diff and put the ceramics in. Feels brand new still

About 188mm with the regular steering knuckles (not narrow).

For rubber tire racing, I like a narrow front end on asphalt and wide on carpet.

2.5mm......... but i think you could get away with 3/32" since it is about 2.4mm

Glad you posted that, cause I was thinking...(I know) If you still use the same pulley as the old diff, why wouldn't the old 3/32 balls work??

Yes, it does.

AND........If you have the old RDX or Phi diffs with 3/32" ceramic balls, you can use them instead of the 2.5 mm carbide balls.

Make sure that you get the latest Phi with the new 2008 diff.

Assume that you would want the EU version. Comes with a one-way in the kit; so, depending on your class, you may want to pickup a spool and or extra diff.

In the US, the latest kits also include the new 2008 diff and a free 13.5 brushless motor. Best sources are CorallyUSA, Superior Hobbies, Ampdraw Hobbies and Stormer Hobbies for Corally parts.

Absolutely! But, you need 18 balls; so, it takes two old diffs to handle one 2008 diff.

Note: For some reason, the 2.5 mm ceramic balls were too tight in only one of the 36T pulleys on my 2008 diffs; so, that is why I reverted to using the minutely smaller 3/32" balls in only that unit.
