Dave you have the baddest looking cars of anyone. I can't say that I have ever seen a car look any better than what you build.

The picture of you posted of the bodies is awesome. I think it was the 2nd body you posted with all those wild loud colors. Very very cool!!!!!!!!

Just wondering if the A6053 ball diff set will work in the front in place of the one way. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Yes that is the part; I think all of us carpet racers use the ball diff instead of the one way. You might want to pick up and extra set of diff housings if they are in stock.

Schmelme if you plan on running that car stock rubber I highly suggest the oneway.

Hi,

your cars are all loaded with aluminium parts but nobody has aluminium diff outdrives. Why? IŽve made some after I destroyed 2 delrin diff outdrives and I had to say: They works great. I made some new thrust washers, too. IŽll try them on a race this weekend an hope that the washers work as good as the outdrives. IŽll try to make some pictures this week.
I put the outdrive on a scale and they are only 4 gramms heavier.

P.S.: Excuse my bad English, IŽm a German.

i ordered a one way just thinking of having a spare on hand for the front or back just in case. Just dont trust the durability of the one-ways. I know they are faster on the track though

ALEX Racing Japan made up a "Few" Prototype Alloy diff halfs for the Japanese Nationals this year....soooooooooooooo I don"t know if they will ever release them... .... Also there is a fix for the Diff Halfs.. Yokomo makes a outdrive protector for there 4WD Offroad Buggy that fit right over the ALEX Diff halfs that will work and they cost less than 10$

The good news is my one-way is going on 2 years of hard racing now- mostly 19turn.

Hi speedy-932,

Can I ask you what parts you used to build the aluminum diff outdrives ? I am kinda interested.

I read that, but my outdrives are completly made of aluminium.

Yes, you can. I know someone who has a CNC and a turning lathe. But you donŽt need a CNC, a manual machine will work too.

Never mind. I thought you used some diff parts for some other car. Way too much for me to make parts on a machine.
